NYACK, N.Y. – Felician College senior middle blocker Alexa Scrivanich (Paramus, N.J.) amassed a career-high seven blocks, including the 100th of her career, in the Golden Falcons' 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-20) Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference women's volleyball loss to host Nyack College on Friday night at Bowman Gymnasium.

Scrivanich ran her collegiate block total to 105 (35 solo, 70 assisted). She is the fourth player in the 10-year history of the Felician program to surpass 100. Laura Peskosky '09 is the all-time leader with 166, while Scrivanich moved past former teammate Megan Delamater '12 (103) into third place.

Felician (2-8, 2-4 CACC) was unable to hold onto four-point leads in each of the first two sets. The Golden Falcons took an early 12-8 edge in Set 1, but were out-hit, .333-.109 in an eventual 25-20 loss. In set 2, Felician was ahead 16-12 before Nyack stormed back to move ahead, 21-20. Following a Golden Falcon side-out, the Warriors scored the last four points of the set to lead, 2-0.

The visitors nearly flipped the script in the third set. Trailing, 8-3, Felician came back to tie things at 17-17, but could not complete the comeback and succumbed, 25-20. The Warriors hit .293 for the night and held the Golden Falcons to a team attack percentage of .105.

Senior outside Deborah Schendel (Great Falls, Mont.) paced Nyack (7-11, 3-2) with 10 kills and eight digs. Sophomore middle Samantha Garza (North Branch, Mich.) hit .500 with nine kills and two blocks.

Scrivanich hit .429, led all players with a season-high 11 kills, and added two service aces. Teammate Kayla Gallagher (Bloomingburg, N.Y.) put down seven kills.

Felician is in action again on Saturday, hosting Chestnut Hill College in CACC competition at 1 p.m. It will be the Golden Falcons' first home contest since Sept. 19.
