BOSTON, Mass. – For the second year in a row, the Johnson & Wales University men's volleyball team couldn't get past Wentworth in the semifinals of the GNAC Tournament. The Wildcats lost a 3-0 (25-16, 25-19, 25-21) decision to the Leopards on Thursday.
Johnson & Wales ended the season with an 18-15 record. Wentworth improved to 22-10 and moves on to face Rivier in Saturday's championship match.
JWU was down 20-17 in the third set, but rallied to tie the game at 20-20 on a Dondre Crump ace. Unfortunately, the Leopards ended the match on a 5-1 run.
The Wildcats were limited to a .104 hitting percentage while the Leopards had a .354 rate. Wentworth also had a 32-20 advantage in digs to go along with a 6-1 margin for blocks.
Head coach Scott Reslow should have another contender in 2019 as he returns most of his starters.
