Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Match

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.—In the final match of the 2013 regular season, Marist College rallied from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Rider University 3-2 on Sunday afternoon in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference match.

With the win, the Red Foxes clinched a share of the MAAC regular season championship with Fairfield, which defeated Canisius 3-1, also on Sunday. 

Marist won the match 21-25, 25-27, 25-20, 25-22, 15-4.

For Rider (15-14, 6-12 MAAC), junior Ashlee Amatulli (Menifee, Calif./Temecula Valley) had 27 assists and six digs with freshman Kaitlyn Griffin (Chesapeake, Va./Hickory) adding 17 kills and five blocks.

Griffin, a five-time MAAC Rookie of the Week honoree, hit .567 in the match.

Also for the Broncs, in her final match, senior Bridget Sheerin (Oak Lawn, Ill./Marist) had 16 kills, five digs and three blocks.

“I thought we played well today,” said head coach Christopher Feliciano who completed his third season at Rider.  “The team was outstanding, especially in sets one, two and four.  Bridget and Kaitlyn did a lot of the heavy lifting for the offense.”

Freshman Alaina Piszczek (Sinking Spring, Pa./Berks Catholic) had 26 digs and sophomore Brandie Hill (Portland, Ore./Lincoln) added 18 assists for Rider with junior Jaclyn Webber (Anaheim, Calif./Canyon) compiling 15 digs, six kills and four blocks.

Marist defeated Rider in four sets in Lawrenceville on October 12, sweeping the season series.

Former Northeast Conference rivals, Rider has won 13 of the 34 matches all-time against Marist. The Broncs defeated the Red Foxes in two out of three matches in 2010 including a 3-0 win in the MAAC Championship Tournament and a 3-2 win in Alumni Gym that saw the Broncs rally from two sets down.

Under Feliciano, the Broncs enjoyed a six-win improvement from 2011 to 2012 and Rider increased its win total by another four matches this season.

Rider returns 12 letterwinners for the 2014 season.

“I’m very happy and excited about the potential heading into next season,” Feliciano added.
