At the net, Niki Carpenter posted a team-high four blocks, adding four kills in the middle. Abbey James and Amanda Meck totaled 13 assists a piece as the primary facilitators for the Maroon and Gold.

Kutztown (10-14, 3-11 PSAC) got off to a great start against Seton Hill (16-8, 10-4 PSAC), pushing the Griffins to the brink in the opening set. KU had a 24-23 lead late, but SHU used three unanswered tallies to finish off the Golden Bears, 26-24, in set one.

SHU continued to build its momentum into the second set, ripping off six straight points with the score tied at 13-all to take a commanding 19-13 advantage late in the frame.
