Against the Green Terror, the Diplomats trail in the all-time series at 32-25, however F&M has won six straight matches, including a 3-0 sweep last season.

On Saturday at the trimatch, the Diplomats will first battle the Generals, a team that holds a 1-0 mark against F&M. In the following match, the Diplomats take on the Yellow Jackets, who hold a 3-0 mark against F&M.

Last Week: The Diplomats battled but were edged out by Johns Hopkins 3-2 last Wednesday.

Down 2-0 in match, F&M fought back to tie it at 2-2 but the Blue Jays took the third set at 15-12 and the match 3-2. 

Ellie Ezekiel paced the offense with 15 kills, while Julie Harvey notched 13 and Rachel Umberger 10. Caroline Hubbard added 15 helpers and 15 digs for her seventh double-double of the year.

Alyssa Sanchez tallied 28 digs, the second-most in a five-set match for one player in Diplomat history. Meghan Godorov had 51 digs against Elizabethtown on Sept. 1, 2004.

 As a team, F&M recorded 93 digs, which tied the most ever for a Diplomat squad in a five-setter. Back on Aug. 21, 2012, the Diplomats finished with 93 digs against Lancaster Bible.

Hubbard Continues to Climb: With 3,125 career assists, the senior setter is 309 helpers away from passing Jamie Cardman (1994-97) for third on F&M's all-time list. In the CC, Hubbard sits in second with 9.07 assists per set, while Washington's Taylor Horan is first at 9.57. 

Block Party: Harvey has amassed 264 total blocks in her career, good for third on F&M's list. Nicole Morano (2007-10) is second with 297 behind program leader Stacy Dunchick's (1996-99) 369.
