PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Despite nine kills on a .348 hitting percentage from sophomore Lucia Pohlman, the Dartmouth volleyball team was swept by Brown Friday night in Providence (25-15, 25-19, 25-16).

The home team set the tone early, jumping out to a 13-3 lead in the first set, eventually taking the frame by a 10-point margin, 25-15.

In set two, Dartmouth led, 5-3 before the Bears again took over with an 11-3 run for a 14-8 advantage. The Big Green would fight back to within a point, 17-16 before Brown closed out with an 8-3 run, taking the set, 25-19.

In the final frame, the Big Green gave it their all and pulled within two points midway through, 18-16. But the Bears put the match away with an unstoppable 7-0 run, taking the set, 25-16.
