Wathen and Michelle Margolies, both freshmen, lost in the first round in a

On Saturday, senior Dan Mulcahy broke the career record for blocks, passing the 114.5 mark set previously by Garrett Werner. This week the team faces Germantown, a win and the Knights will be conference champions outright and a loss would force them to share the title with Germantown.
