After 21 straight games away from home, the Lady Friars return to their own floor for just the second time this season after finishing a stretch of 24 days without a home game.

Bishop Lynch (15-7) was in Heath last night for a dual against Heath and Naaman Forest, where the ladies finished the night with a split of the two, giving coach Tricia Roos her 375thcareer victory.

The Lady Friars lost to Heath in four but turned right around and finished off Naaman Forest in the same number of sets.

Heath 3, Lady Friars 1

Izzy Clavenna hammered down 23 kills but the rest of the team struggled on the attack against a seasoned Heath squad. After a close opening set, Heath dominated the second but ran into a resilient BL squad that avoided a sweep. In the end, Heath made the plays when it mattered most. Clavenna added 13 digs and three blocks, Sydney Broussard had a team-high 27 digs and Alex Galicia posted 23 assists.

Looking much like the first match, the Lady Friars this time found themselves on the plus side of the result, topping the Rangers in four. BL hit the ball much better this time around with Lauryn Green notching a team-high 16 kills while Clavenna added 15. Broussard posted 23 digs and Galicia had 26 assists. 

Up Next

The Lady Friars are home for three of their next four matches, including Friday's game against Highland Park (11-10). The varsity match is slated for a 4:30 pm start.
