It was the first time in two years Wellesley had lost at the Keohane Sports Fitness Center.

Hart led the Engineers with 17 kills and added four aces and 13 digs. Arlis A. Reynolds ’06 contributed seven kills, four aces, and 12 digs (saved spikes) while Jordan had eight kills, three aces, 12 digs, and four assisted blocks.
