Tigers Volleyball Off to a Slow Start

The Trinity Tigers lose second and third road games to Notre Dame of Maryland University Gators and PSU Abington Nittany Lions. The Tigers struggle to put points on the scoreboard and with receiving errors while the Gators continued to attack. The Gators were a more experienced team this early in the season already having two wins under their belt. The Tigers will face the Gators at home on October 28, 2017 at 2:00pm.

The Tigers had a much better game against the Nittany Lions though they could not come away with a win. Kenna Brooks recorded a season high 4 kills and Ramona Santana recorded a personal and team high 12 digs. See the Tigers face Washington Adventist University at their home-opener on September 12, 2017 at 7:00pm.
