Capp Reaches 2,000 career assists as #3 Men’s Volleyball Sweeps Nationally Ranked Lancaster Bible

UNION, N.J. (3/6/19)- Ian Capp becomes the second player in program history to reach 2,000 career assists as the #3 Kean University men's volleyball team extended its winning streak to seven matches with a 3-0 sweep (25-16, 25-23, 25-22) of #11 Lancaster Bible College on Wednesday evening.

Capp finished with 18 assists, seven kills, five aces and a dig for the Cougars who improve to 17-3 overall. Nate Miller totaled 18 kills and seven digs for the Chargers who fall to 16-4 overall and have their six match winning streak snapped.  

Capp joins Ron Dunn as the only players to reach the mark and is now at 2,003 assists and climbing. Dunn is currently the program leader with 2,763 assists.

Kean hit .350 for the match and never let their hitting percentage dip below .320 in any set.  After a dominating opening set victory, Lancaster Bible matched Kean's intensity by hitting just over .300 in the final two sets.  The Cougars found a way to get the job done with Capp in the mix on the final points in both sets.

The junior connected with Jake Milnazik and Kamil Garbowski for back-to-back kills in the set two victory, while connecting with Steven Zarzycki and Dylan Flor for the same results in the final set.

Milnazik totaled 10 kills and a .438 hitting percentage, while Flor added eight kills. Garbowski finished with five kills and a .714 hitting percentage, while both Jay Bynum and Nick Buseski tallied four kills apiece. Zach Gerken totaled 12 assists and four digs, while Jonathan Meyer and Zarzycki each collected six digs apiece.
