"Moriah has done a great job for us for four years, and it's nice to see her get some recognition for what she's done," said head coach Chad Callihan. "We talk about leaving the program in a better place, and all of our seniors have contributed to elevating our program."
Meredith Paskert also posted seven kills for the Eagles, and Kate Van Dyke added five kills and 33 assists. Alexandra Beecher recorded a match-high 21 digs.
Rachael Farrell led The Citadel (2-15, 0-3 SoCon) with eight kills.
