Bethel Ends St. Mary’s Volleyball Post-Season Run
The Bethel Royals cut the St. Mary’s University Cardinals playoff run short with a 3-1 win last night on the Cardinals’ home court. The match was all Royals except for the third set, which saw the Cardinals’ Morgan Thomas deliver six straight points, pacing SMU to take the set 25-16.
There were some strong performances from Brittney Hanson who dished out 23 assists and 12 digs for her 12th double-double of the season, and Lillian Braun finished the match with 17 assists and nine digs. Thomas added eight digs in the losing effort.
The Cardinals season ends with a 24-5 overall record. Bethel is now 18-11 and will play conference champion Augsburg Thursday in Minneapolis.
