YORK - On Saturday, Sept 30 in the Freeman Center the York College volleyball team came up short as they looked to upset one of the better KCAC conference teams in Tabor College. Tabor came in to the day with a 12-6 winning record, while the Panthers came in with a tough 3-16 record. The Panthers battled tough early on, but fell short in three sets.

Amy Hormer led Tabor to a victory over York in a quick three set match, with a grand total of 15 kills. Her length and jump ability gave her an advantage that was too much to bear for the Panthers. Ali Just was a force defensively for Tabor, racking up 21 digs for the Bluejays. Tabor finished the game with a total of 42 kills compared to just 20 for the Panthers. 

Taylor O'Brien (FR/Aurora, Colo) and Rose Tafaoalii led the Panthers with six kills each. Kelsey Taylor (JR/Moore, Okla) stayed strong defensively, leading the team with 14 digs. Makenzi Kissman (FR/Aurora, Colo), who missed part of the match due to an injury, led the team with ten assists.

York travels to Friends University on Wednesday to try to get back in the win column. Rose Tafaoalii, showed some optimism in the
Panthers matchup versus the Falcons, saying "I'm excited for us to play a team of this caliber. I think with some much needed rest this weekend, we can test the Falcons".  

The next Panther home volleyball game will be a doubleheader this coming Saturday held in the Freeman Center. York will play University of St. Mary in a conference matchup at 2:00 p.m. followed by a non-conference match at 6:00 p.m. against Dakota Wesleyan.
