Having dropped five conference games in a row, the Eagles’ second-to-last home match of the season comes against a team that beat them a few weeks prior—Virginia Tech.
The Eagles struggled mightily last time out, losing in straight sets to Virginia Tech, but have had five days to prepare for a Cardinals team that they played tough just two weeks ago. Last time the two teams met, BC was just two points from forcing a fifth set.
Conference struggles continued for BC, as after a two-game road trip to Notre Dame and Louisville, it fell to just 1-9 in its last 10 games.
The Eagles were led on Sunday by Jewel Strawberry’s 14 kills, while McKenna Goss recorded 11 kills and one block in a losing effort against the Wolfpack on Friday.
BC continued its four-game road trip with a match in Charlottesville, Va.—the Eagles alternated the opening four frames, but, for the second-straight contest, lost in five sets.
After a disappointing showing in the New England Challenge, BC responded with a successful homestand, capping it off with a win in four sets over Georgia Tech.
Cat Balido led the team with 11 kills, Makenzie Morrison recorded a match-high nine digs, and the Eagles won three-consecutive sets, starting the ACC slate on the right foot.
