PHILADELPHIA -- The University of Delaware volleyball team won three of its four matches at the Temple Alumni Tournament over the weekend at McGonigle Hall.

The Blue Hens defeated Penn, 2-0, before falling to the host Owls, 2-1. Delaware then defeated Navy and La Salle by identical 2-0 scores.

Every member of the Blue Hen squad saw action and contributed at the tournament.

“It was nice to play and I was very pleased with our effort,” said Blue Hen head coach Bonnie Kenny, who will begin her 13th season in Newark this fall. “Defensively we have improved. Offensively our attack was balanced. Overall it was a good day.”

The Blue Hens will host the Delaware Spring Invitational this Saturday when they take on Towson, St. John’s, Rutgers, Princeton and a UD Alumni Team. Action begins at 9 a.m. in the west gym of the Bob Carpenter Center Addition.
