ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. –  The St. Mary’s College of Maryland volleyball team (5-16,0-5) continued their season against the Southern Virginia University Knights (12-8, 2-3) and the Washington and Lee Generals (17-5, 5-3) Saturday afternoon (Oct. 12) at the Michael P.

  • St. Mary’s College trailed 9-7 early to the Knights but Southern Virginia pulled away and later led 17-12. The Seahawks battled back to bring the score to an 18-15 Southern Virginia lead but that would be the closest St. Mary’s College would come as they dropped the first set 25-18.
