ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. -- The Mustangs (11-4, 0-1 WHAC) began the Rochester College Tournament Friday (Sept. 13) by topping the competition in straight sets. On Saturday, the Mustangs were able to make history by winning their second tournament championship in program history – also the second of the 2013 season. The tournament title was made possible after the team notched their first victory over nearby counterpart, Rochester College.

Marygrove was the only participating school to go undefeated (5-0) at the Rochester Tournament.

The Mustangs snapped the Warriors streak by attacking the net early and often to begin play Saturday. An inspired early effort shot the Mustangs out to a 2-0 lead before Rochester snuck past to win the third set. In the fourth set, the senior leadership of Katharina Hall (Livonia, Mich./Henry Ford CC), Sarah Suppelsa (Livonia, Mich./Concordia-Ann Arbor), and Amelia Velez (Imlay City, Mich./Prairie View A&M) would be relied upon as the Mustangs shut the door on the Warriors for the first time, 3-1. The dropped set would be the only blemish on the Mustangs record over the weekend.

Coming off the big win over Rochester, head coach Jamie Baker was weary the team would take their foot off the pedal heading into the Robert Morris-Springfield match. Showing no cause for concern, the Mustangs cruised through Saturday's second match by defeating Robert Morris-Springfield in three sets.

Suppelsa and Velez led the second match sweep with 10 kills each. Hall offered up 12 digs to go along with six kills, while Alixandria Pappas (St. Clair Shores, Mich./Lakeview) recorded six kills of her own.

In the tournament finale, Coach Baker's Mustangs knew a win of any kind would secure their second tournament win of the season – also the second in program history. A well-rounded effort, sparked by an early run in the first set, paced the Mustangs in another 3-0 win.

Senior outside hitter Katharina Hall exploded for a tremendous match against Carlow – a NAIA school located in Pittsburgh, Pa. The senior put home 12 kills and was not credited with an error. Hall also had 14 digs in the tournament's final contest.

The 5-0 weekend at the Rochester College Tournament lifts the Mustangs record to 11-4 overall heading into their WHAC home opener Wednesday (Sept. 18) against NAIA #6, Madonna University. The home opener is set for a 7:00 p.m. start at University of Detroit Jesuit High School.
