COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Playing against some of its stiffest competition of the season, the Carleton College volleyball team dropped a pair of matches on the opening day of the ACM Tournament hosted at Colorado College Friday. The Knights dropped a tight three-set match versus Coe College to open the day, before falling in a hard-fought five-setter against Lake Forest College Friday afternoon.

Carleton open the day with a tight back-and-fourth affair versus Coe, before eventually falling in three sets. The Kohawks (4-3), who were picked to finish third in the Iowa Conference Pre-Season Poll, had two set point opportunities negated by Carleton late in the first game. The Knights earned their own set point opportunity at 26-25, but were unable to close out the game and eventually fell by a score of 29-27.

Coe went on to win the second set 25-16, before closing out the match with a 25-22 win in the third game.

Faith Skinner (Jr./LaCrosse, Wis./Central) registered a team-high 10 kills and hit .333 to lead the Carleton offensive attack, while Abby Loe (Fy./Apple Valley, Minn.) added nine kills. Lucy Stevens (Sr./Portland, Ore./Oregon Episcopal School) and Katherine Miles (Sr./Park Ridge, Ill./Maine South) added eight kills each for Carleton. Miles hit .533 in the match, while Stevens added two blocks. Lauren Pak (Fy./Moraga, Calif./Campolindo) led the Knights with 29 assists, while Katie Tritschler (Sr./Los Altos, Calif.) added a team-best 12 digs.

The Knights (2-3) were unable to get back on track in the afternoon match, falling in a tough five-set affair versus Lake Forest. After dropping the first set, Carleton responded with wins in the next two games 25-13 and 25-19 to take a 2-1 lead in the match. The Foresters (3-4) rallied to win the fourth set 25-21, before closing out the match with a 15-9 win in the fifth and final game.

Abby Loe tallied 12 kills to go along with 14 digs, while Skinner chipped in with 11 kills and two blocks to lead the Knights. Pak added 33 assists, 10 digs and two aces.

The Knights will close out play at the ACM Tournament with a single match Saturday versus tournament host and No. 9-ranked Colorado College at 10 a.m. local time. A live video feed will be available via Knights Online.
