HANOVER, N.H. — The Dartmouth volleyball team hopes to get back on track this weekend, facing Yale and Brown in conference action at Leede Arena. The Big Green will take on the Bulldogs Friday night (7 p.m.), followed by the Bears Saturday (5 p.m.).

After getting off to a strong start with a victory over Harvard in the Ivy opener, Dartmouth dropped its next two Ivy contests, getting swept by both Penn and Princeton at home last weekend.

Yale has given the Green and White trouble in the past, holding a 26-10 advantage in the all-time series. Dartmouth did take last year's final match of the season against the Bulldogs, a dramatic 3-2 home victory that ended the Big Green's season on a high note.

Brown and Dartmouth are more evenly matched, with the Big Green holding a slight 16-15 series advantage. Dartmouth swept the Bears last season by scores of 3-0 in both matches, and is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings.

Sophomore standout Alex Schoenberger leads the Big Green with 129 kills on the season. Averaging 2.80 kills/set, she also has 18 blocks and 16 digs on the year. Rookie hitter Paige Caridi is not far behind with 119 kills, adding 116 digs. Sophomore defensive specialist Holly Harper is tops on the team in digs with 141, averaging 3.07 per set. Sophomore setter Lucia Pohlman has a team-best 16 service aces and is second on the squad with 17 blocks.
