    Leading into this weekend, the Women’s Volleyball Team was at a crossroads in their season. They were slipping below .500, they were shuffling lineups, and they were in the midst of a five game losing streak. Facing this dilemma, the Friars settled on trekking forward in search of success, but the weekend was met with mixed results. While Friday brought jubilation as the Friars swept America East rival UNH at home, it was quickly followed by frustration for PC, as they fell at UNH in straight sets.
