Women's Volleyball Mounts Rally To Shock Williams In NESCAC Final

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's volleyball team rallied from a two-set deficit to stun Williams 3-2 in the championship match of the 2015 New England Small College Athletic Conference Tournament Saturday at Morrell Gymnasium.

The Polar Bears claim their second NESCAC title overall and will receive the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Selections and pairings will be announced on NCAA.com on Monday. Williams drops to 18-10 with the loss. Bowdoin rallied for a win by set scores of 20-25, 19-25, 25-22, 25-23, 15-7

How It Happened

Williams appeared to be in complete control after winning the first two sets by scores of 25-20 and 25-19
With Williams holding a 15-14 edge in the opening set, the Ephs used a 3-0 surge to take control en route to a 25-20 victory
In set two, the Ephs jumped to an early lead before Bowdoin was able to trim it to 18-17 late. Williams closed the set on a 7-2 run to win 25-19 and take a commanding 2-0 overall lead
With their backs to the wall and the third set tied at 21 apiece, Bowdoin won four of the last five points, including a pair of big kills by Christy Jewett, to win 25-22
The fourth set was just as tight, with the teams tied at 23-23. Bowdoin got a kill from Erika Sklaver to go ahead and a Williams attack error to clinch the 25-23 victory
Bowdoin did not trail in the deciding fifth, jumping to an 8-4 lead and extending the lead to 14-6 before a Sklaver kill ended it for the Polar Bears
By The Numbers

Quincy Leech collected 43 assists, 24 digs and had seven kills in the victory for Bowdoin
Jewett had a team-high 17 kills and 10 digs while Sklaver finished with 12 kills and six blocks for the Polar Bears
Katie Doherty earned a match-high 51 digs in the win
Williams was led by a gutty performance by Tori Jasuta, who ended with 26 kills and 29 digs
Ally Ostrow put home 15 kills to go with 17 digs while Ryan Farley dished 53 assists and collected 18 digs
Up Next

The Polar Bears will learn the NCAA Tournament pairings on Monday when the field is announced online at 11:00 a.m. Williams will await word on an at-large selection.

Women's Volleyball Cruises Into NCAA Second Round With Sweep of UMass-Boston

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Bowdoin College women's volleyball team swept UMass Boston 3-0 (25-16, 25-11, 25-20) in the NCAA Division III First Round on Friday afternoon on the campus of MIT.

The Polar Bears (24-4), winners of 22 of their last 23 matches, advance to the Second Round on Saturday where they will face Babson (28-8), who won a five-set regular-season match against Bowdoin on September 12.

How It Happened

Bowdoin cruised in the first two sets, 25-16 and 25-11, before having to rally to claim the third, 25-20
Tied at 11 apiece in the opening set, Bowdoin used a 6-0 run to take command en route to the 25-16 win. Jewett had five kills in the win
Bowdoin sprinted to a 10-5 lead in the second and never looked back, extending their lead to 17-6 with a 7-1 run in an eventual 25-11 triumph
Trailing 15-13 in the third, Bowdoin rallied to knot it at 17 apiece before using a 4-1 surge to take a 21-18 lead. A block by Sydney Salle sealed the win, Bowdoin's sixth in NCAA Tournament play
Bowdoin has now won at least one match in each of their four NCAA Tournament appearances, in 2011, '12, '14 and '15
By The Numbers

Jewett led the Polar Bears with a match-high 13 kills and 14 digs while also delivering two aces and three blocks
Erika Sklaver and Hailey Wahl had seven kills apiece for Bowdoin while Wahl also added three aces
Quincy Leech bad 29 assists, 13 digs and three kills in the win
Eileen Shi led the Beacons with 11 kills as UMass-Boston hurt itself with 20 attack errors and seven service errors
Up Next

Bowdoin will attempt to avenge its regular-season loss to Babson, played in the exact same gym (MIT) at the MIT Invitational in September. The Beavers came away with a 25-13, 25-18, 17-25, 23-25, 15-7 win
Match time is set for 2:30 p.m.

Volleyball Advances to Regional Final with 3-1 Win Over Babson

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Bowdoin College volleyball team took a pair of close first sets and then shrugged off a third set loss to Babson College to take a 3-1 (25-22, 26-24, 21-25, 25-20) win.

The Polar Bears (25-4) avenged an early season loss to the Beavers (28-9) in their second round of the 2015 NCAA Division III Women's Volleyball Regional at MIT. The Polar Bears will look to do the same on Sunday against the Engineers, who bested them 3-0 way back on September 12.

How It Happened

Babson took an early 6-3 lead in the first set, but three early kills by Christy Jewett helped keep Bowdoin close. The Polar Bears battled back to tie the set at 14-all on a kill from Hailey Wahl. Babson pulled ahead again, but a put away from Sydney Salle tied the match at 21-21. The Polar Bears regained the lead and took the set 25-22.
The Beavers jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the second set, and continued to roll to a 16-12 advantage before Bowdoin battled back to even the score at 17-17 off a Jewett ace. The sides traded one-point leads until Bowdoin came away with the 26-24 set two win off an attack and Beaver ball handling error.
Bowdoin fell into a 9-7 hole to begin the third set, and never recovered. The Beavers went on a 9-2 run which had them leading 19-9 before Bowdoin would close within 21-17, but run out of time to complete the comeback.
The Polar Bears raced to an 8-2 lead to start the fourth set, followed by a 6-1 run from the Beavers. A kill from Michelle Albright started a 9-3 run for Bowdoin to put them ahead 20-13 as the Polar Bears closed out Babson to advance.
By the Numbers

Jewett had 20 kills for Bowdoin, with Salle and Wahl adding 10 each.
The Polar Bears out hit Babson, .150-.126, with the Beavers totaling 11 blocks to six for Bowdoin.
Mackiewicz led Babson with 11 kills, with Yilmaz finishing with nine kills and six blocks for the Beavers.
Leech had 39 assists and an ace for Bowdoin, while Robertson led Babson with 17 assists.
Up Next

With the win the Polar Bears move to the regional championship tomorrow at MIT starting at 2:00 p.m.
It is the third consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance that the Polar Bears have reached the regional final: Bowdoin has lost to Williams (2014) and UMass-Boston (2012) in its previous two appearances.
Bowdoin ended MIT's season in the Second Round in 2014, beating the Engineers 3-2 last fall

Bowdoin Falls to Cal Lutheran in NCAA Volleyball Quarterfinals

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Bowdoin College women's volleyball team proved it belonged on the big stage in the NCAA Quarterfinals on Thursday evening, but lost an eventual 3-1 decision to Cal-Lutheran on the campus of Calvin College.

The Polar Bears finish a stellar season with a 26-5 record, the third-most wins in a single season in program history, the 2015 NESCAC Championship and program's first-ever NCAA Regional title. Bowdoin's two-member senior class of Hailey Wahl and Christy Jewett close out their careers as the winningest class in Bowdoin volleyball history with exactly 100 victories.

Cal Lutheran advances to the NCAA semifinals on Friday after rallying for the 20-25, 25-17, 25-16, 25-23 win.

How It Happened

Bowdoin jumped out to the early lead, taking the first set 25-20. The Polar Bears maintained the lead throughout the set after trailing 3-0 early. After Lutheran closed to 18-17, Bowdoin used a 5-2 surge to create some distance en route to the convincing victory
Cal Lutheran responded in the second set with the score tied at 10 apiece. The Regals rolled off a 5-1 to take control, cruising to an eventual 25-17 win
Bowdoin took a 9-5 advantage early in the third set before the Regals responded with an authoritative 11-2 run to take a 16-11 advantage. Bowdoin could get no closer than five points for the remainder of the set as Lutheran went up 2-1 with a 25-16 triumph
The fourth set was the closest of the night with the teams tied at 15 and 16 before Lutheran used a 4-1 run to take a 20-17 lead. With their backs to the wall, the Polar Bears were able to cut it to 24-23 following two straight must-win points, but a service error closed the deal, clinching the 25-23 win for Lutheran
By The Numbers

Quincy Leech was outstanding for Bowdoin, nearly recording a triple-double with eight kills, 38 assists and 10 digs
She distributed the ball equally to three Polar Bears with double-digits in kills, led by Michelle Albright's 11. Albright also added nine digs.
Christy Jewett had ten kills and 16 digs, Erika Sklaver finished with ten kills and had two blocks and Sydney Salle ended with nine kills and five blocks
As usual, Katie Doherty was all over the court for Bowdoin with a match-high 29 digs
Allie Eason was the driving force for the Regals, finishing with a match-high 19 kills while adding 18 digs
