Haverford at Franklin & Marshall (Volleyball)
It figures to be the biggest match of the Conference volleyball season as a pair of CC unbeatens square off in Lancaster.

Franklin & Marshall (5-0, 18-3), winner of four Conference titles, has won 12 of its last 13 matches - all by 3-0 sweeps. The two teams are 1-2 in the CC in hitting percentage, while the Diplomats lead the Centennial in team blocks. The Salvo sisters - Rebecca (3.51) and Rachel (3.15) - have combined for 6.66 kills per set for Haverford, while F&M's Nicole Morano (2.70) and Kerry Rom (2.64) have combined for 5.34. It is the 27th meeting between the two schools with the Diplomats holding a 19-7 series lead. Can't make the trip to Mayser Center? Watch the match on your computer!
