KEUKA PARK, N.Y. -- The Keuka College Women's Volleyball lost on Tuesday night to the Oswego State Lakers in three sets at the JMW Recreation and Athletics Center at Keuka College.

Jadine Buddingh led the Wolfpack with five kills. Fellow sophomore Katelyn Warren led Keuka in overall points. Her night consisted of three kills, three assisted blocks and a pair of aces for 6.5 total points. Lauren Moelbert added four kills in the match. Kayla Brown led Keuka with eight assists. Kate Burke and Alyssa Rex each had a team-leading seven digs.

Keuka College (3-10, 1-2 NEAC) came out early against Oswego State (14-6, 2-1 SUNYAC). The Wolfpack held a 12-10 lead over the Lakers. Oswego would answer, however, and take 15 of the next 17 points to win the opening set 25-14. Keuka once again had an early lead on the Lakers in the second set. Oswego scored eight straight points to turn a two point Wolfpack lead into a six point Laker advantage. The Wolfpack got the margin back to two points, but Oswego State closed strong for the 25-19 victory in set two. In set three, Oswego State took control of the match. The set was only tied twice, at 1-1, and 3-3. The Lakers would hold leads as many as eight points in the set. Keuka attempted to get back into the match with a late run to make it a four point margin, but Oswego State closed it out for the 25-20 set win, and a 3-0 match victory.

The Wolfpack will return to North Eastern Athletic Conference play this weekend as they play an NEAC Crossover event at Wells College. Keuka will face defending NEAC champions Gallaudet on Friday night. They will then take on hosts Wells College and conference rivals Cazenovia College on Saturday.
