Boston College freshman Amaka Chukwujekwu was the bright spot in this weekend’s volleyball loss to Pittsburgh, setting the program record for individual match attack percentage with a .846 hitting percentage off of 13 total attempts and 11 kills. Despite Chukwujekwu’s strong performance, the Eagles fell to Pittsburgh 3-0.

Pittsburgh jumped to an early 6-1 start in the first set, and BC was unable to stage a comeback. BC ended up losing this set by a score of 25-17.

The Eagles jumped to a 6-2 lead in the second set, but Pittsburgh caught up and ultimately sealed the win with a late 5-1 run. This was the closest set of the game, with Pitt winning by only 2 points and a final score of 25-22.

Boston College struggled in the third set, and was unable to fight back once Pittsburgh went up 10-2. The Panthers closed out the game with a 25-18 win, taking the match in straight sets.

Next weekend, BC will look to get back to winning when they take on Clemson on the road. Clemson is 1 of the 2 ACC teams that BC has beaten this season.
