BRONXVILLE, N.Y. (Oct. 22, 2016) – The USMMA women's volleyball team picked up a pair of key Skyline Conference victories at a tri-match hosted by Sarah Lawrence on Saturday. The Mariners defeated the host Gryphons in straight sets, 25-10, 25-14, 25-14, in the first match, and downed the Dolphins of Mount St. Vincent in the second, also in straight sets, 25-20, 25-17, 26-24.
 
The wins improve the Mariners' record to 14-8 (6-1 Skyline). They also put Merchant Marine alone in third place in the conference with four matches still remaining.
