The Yale volleyball team won handily in its Saturday afternoon game against Cornell, the last home game in the careers of five Yale seniors: outside hitter Cat Dailey ’09, outside hitter Alexis Crusey ’09,

outside hitter Lydia Mailander ’09, outside hitter Julia Mailander ’09 and middle blocker Laurel Johnson ’09.

The Bulldogs swept the Big Red in three sets by set scores of 25–14, 25–15 and 25–11.

It was an emotional victory for the Elis, as it marks the end of what many have called one of the greatest classes in Yale volleyball history.

“There were tears in the locker room,” head coach Erin Appleman said.

The Bulldogs travel to Brown on Tuesday for their final match of the season.
