The Montclair State University women’s volleyball team had their first New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) game on Tuesday, which resulted in a grueling loss to current NJAC Champions Kean University. The game went into five long and intense sets, with the wins for each set going back-and-forth to each team. Each set was close, but the Red Hawks barely fell to Kean in the fifth set by a score of 15-13. Sophomore outside hitter Carly Waterman registered 18 kills, while junior setter Megan O’Rourke had 40 assists to keep the Red Hawks in line with their tough opponent.
