Mary Washington and Marymount Advance to CAC Volleyball Semifinals

Mary Washington and Marymount secured victories in the first round of the CAC volleyball tournament on Tuesday night, advancing to the semifinals. 

Mary Washington, seeded third, defeated sixth-seeded Frostburg State 3-0, to move on to the semifinals for the sixth straight year. Fourth-seeded Marymount topped fifth-seeded St. Mary's 3-2 in Tuesday's other matchup, the second five-set triumph for the Saints over the Seahawks in the last week. 

Mary Washington will travel to second-seeded Salisbury for Thursday's semifinal round. The Sea Gulls, making their 12th straight appearance in the semifinals, captured the regular season matchup over the Eagles by a 3-1 margin, on Oct. 11 in Salisbury. 

Thursday's other semifinal matchup features Marymount at regular season champion and top seeded Christopher Newport. The Captains topped the Saints 3-0 last Saturday in the CAC regular season finale for both squads.
