SPRINGFIELD, Mass.-Freshman Rebecca Muller recorded a double-double but it wasn't enough as the Coast Guard volleyball team fell to Wellesley 3-0 in a New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference semi-final on Saturday. The loss means that Coast Guard will finish their season with a record of 22-9 while Wellesley will improve to 28-5 and face Springfield tomorrow for the 2013 NEWMAC Championship.

The Bears had no answer for junior Sydney Carfagno who recorded 13 kills and attacked at .281 for Wellesley. Sophomore Courtney Lang recorded nine kills and hit at a game-high .391 clip as five players recorded at least six kills for Wellesley.

Senior Samantha Marmolejo totaled 15 digs for the Bears while classmate Kelsey DePorto finished with six kills (.042) in their final collegiate match.

Sophomore Maggie Hine led Coast Guard with 23 assists and had four digs. Freshman Susan West had eight kills and eight digs in the match.

Wellesley improves to 13-15 all-time against Coast Guard, including wins in each of the last six contests.

DePorto finishes her career as the Bears all-time leader with 461 games played, second in blocks (447), and fourth in kills (1,323) while Marmolejo is the Bears all-time leader with 1,775 digs and she ranks second with 454 games played.
