Russi, Kats Down Mercyhurst NE

Thursday, September 29, 2011

NORTH EAST, Pa. - Freshman right-side hitter Katie Russi (Hamburg, N.Y./Frontier) led the ninth-ranked Erie Community College volleyball team with 16 kills as the Kats recorded a 25-15, 25-20, 25-22 win over Mercyhurst North East Thursday night in Region III action.

Sophomore setter Danielle Aurellio-Clark (Lancaster, N.Y./Lancaster) added 35 assists and freshman middle hitter Rylie Bean (Hamburg, N.Y/Frontier) had a team-high four blocks.

"Because of our quicker-paced offensive scheme, we rely heavily on our passing," ECC head coach Craig Starzynski said. "Today we were on, especially Molly (Gasuik, Buffalo, N.Y./Mt. Mercy Academy) who played really well in the back row."

ECC, now 16-1 and winners of eight straight, play in a Region III pod tournament at Broome Community College Saturday.
