#6 Men’s Volleyball Extends Winning Streak to 12 with Victory over Defending CVC Champions Juniata

UNION, N.J. (3/4/18)- Dylan Flor and Steven Zarzycki combined for 32 kills as the #6 Kean University Men's Volleyball team extended their winning streak to 12 matches with a 3-1 (25-23, 25-21, 22-25, 25-19) victory over the defending Continental Volleyball Conference champion Juniata College on Sunday afternoon.

Flor finished with a double-double of 15 kills and 12 digs, while Zarzycki collected a team-high 17 kills for the Cougars who improve to 18-2 overall and 6-1 in the CVC. Quinn Peterson totaled a match-high 18 kills for the Eagles who fall to 10-11 overall and 6-4 in the CVC.

Ian Capp handed out 48 assists as the Cougars tallied nine aces and 23 blocks assists for the match.

Kean totaled double-digit kills in all four sets and maintained above a .160 hitting percentage for the match.

Kean collected five blocks in the fourth set, including two triple blocks.

Shayron Taylor finished with five blocks and a match-high three solos blocks. Jared Warner and Flor also tallied five block assists, while Zarzycki added four in the process.
