Prior to the start of the match, the Becker College Athletics Department and the women's volleyball program took a few moments to recognize the two seniors on this year's team. Both of these young women - senior middle blocker Kayla Dupree (North Bergen, N.J. / Bronx High School of Science) and senior outside hitter Veronica Patella-Quinones (Tampa, Fla. / Lake Mary) - have made incredible contributions not only on the field but for the entire Becker community as a whole. Although their playing careers may be coming to an end, they will forever be part of the Hawks family.

The Hawks will wrap up their regular season on Saturday when they travel to Albertus Magnus College for a season-ending Tri-Match.
