Daemen College’s women’s volleyball team just missed on earning a trip to the NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats dropped a five-set decision to American International in the East Regionals on Daemen’s home floor.
Daemen showed plenty of heart in extending the match to the full distance after losing the first two sets. But the Yellow Jackets, the fourth seed, took the match by scores of 25-21, 25-15, 26-28, 20-25, and 15-0.
Ashley Drzymala and Christina Apostol had 12 kills each for the second-seeded Wildcats, while Amber Drzymala added 11 kills and 20 digs.
American International is off to the Elite Eight, which will be held next week in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
