Beach Volleyball Splits Pair of Matches at AVCA Championships

TAVARES, FL - Florida Southern College beach volleyball split a pair of matches in consolation play at the AVCA Small College Championships on Sunday at Hickory Point Beach, defeating Lincoln Memorial by a 3-2 final before falling to Saint Leo by the same score. The Moccasins (5-17) picked up wins at the No. 1, No. 3, and No. 4 matchups to defeat the Lady Railsplitters, but dropped the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 4 against the Lions in the final match of the day.

All three of the Mocs' wins against Lincoln Memorial came in three-set thrillers. The team of Allie Geary/Anna Tovo was a winner at the No. 1 spot (21-13, 13-21, 20-18), while the No. 3 duo of Lauren Kenny/Nicole Mattson picked up a 21-10, 21-23, 15-2 victory. Florida Southern's No. 4 tandem of Gabby Fresh/Kayla Trefren rallied from a first-set loss for a 16-21, 21-8, 15-11 win.

Florida Southern will close out its inaugural season on Tuesday when it travels to Tampa to face the Spartans for the fourth time this season.
