No. 6 Saints Earn Program's First 20-Win Season With 15th Sweep Of Year

ARLINGTON, Va. – The No. 6 Marymount men's volleyball squad sealed up its 20th victory of the season on Saturday afternoon, bringing out the brooms for the 15th time with a three-set sweep of Neumann University in CVC competition, 25-15, 25-10, 25-10. 

Sealing up the top seed in the CVC West Division in Friday night's sweep of Rutgers-Newark, the victory over the Knights rounds out the regular season in CVC play, finishing the season, 11-2. Through the past two seasons, the Saints have only fell three times with a two-year record of 24-3. 

As a team, the Saints hit .443 for the day, led by 10 kills by senior Connor Choate, nine by freshman Evan Flesher, and eight by juniors James Knight and Alex Treser. Commanding the offense was sophomore Joseph Zanelotti with 37 assists to go along with three service aces. Flesher posted a career-best and match-high five service aces in the effort. 

On the defensive side of things, Knight and freshman Jacob Martinez each dove out for seven digs. 

Marymount gears up for its final match of the regular season next Friday, April 6, hosting Arcadia University for Senior Day in the Verizon Sports Arena. The match is set to start at 5 p.m.
