The UNCW Volleyball team took on William & Mary in the weekend series this past weekend. These two matches were the final two matches of the season for the Seahawks. They played at home, at Hanover Hall. The matches were played on Saturday, Nov. 11, and on Sunday, Nov. 12.

The game on Saturday was a 3-0 victory sweep for the Seahawks, snapping a four-game losing streak they had up until that point. Katie Lanz led all players with 15 kills in the match on Saturday. This win improved the Seahawks record to 11-16 (8-9), while the Tribe fell to 13-14 (8-9). The Seahawks were competing for the final Coastal Athletic Association (CAA) playoff berth but due to updated tiebreaker regulations, they were eliminated from contention.

The Seahawks took on the William & Mary Tribe once again the following day. The match on Sunday was a highly competitive affair, with the Tribe holding a 2-1 advantage after three total sets. The Seahawks stormed back, with a 25-15 win in the fourth set and an efficient 15-7 win in the fifth and final set. This win pushed the Seahawks to a 9-9 record within the conference and tied them with Northeastern University (NU). NU received the final spot due to a tiebreaker. Hannah Forbes set career highs in kills and attacks, with 14 and 34 respectively on the day. Lanz had ten kills as well. This was the final career game for many of these Seahawks players, so this weekend’s series sweep was meaningful. Although the playoffs did not happen for this team this season, they ended on a high note.  

The Seahawks finished this year 12-16 (9-9), which is an improvement from last year’s record of 6-19 (4-12). The Seahawks will be back and better next season, which will kick off in Aug. 2024.
