NORTH FLORIDA 3, TROY 0 (25-19, 25-19, 25-14)
TROY, AL – In a thoroughly dominating fashion, North Florida advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2021 NIVC with a road sweep.
The Ospreys dominated all facets of the match, hitting .321 compared to just .069 for Troy. Leading the way for UNF was Dariana Hollingsworth-Santana, who had 11 kills on .474 hitting, and added a season-high five service aces.
The first set found the two teams all tied up at 16-16, but North Florida rattled off a 9-3 run to close the set in convincing fashion. The Ospreys used that momentum and carried it through to the rest of the match, never looking in danger of dropping either of the final two sets. North Florida will take on the winner of the Boston College region (Boston College, Delaware State, UConn and North Carolina A&T) in the quarterfinals.
