HANOVER — The Dartmouth College women’s volleyball team swept matches from Holy Cross and Connecticut on Saturday at Leede Arena to claim the title of its own Dartmouth Invitational and remain unbeaten on the early season.

The Big Green (6-0) won both matches in four sets. Dartmouth started off with a 22-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-18 defeat of the Crusaders, following with a dramatic four-set ouster of the Huskies (26-24, 25-20, 13-25, 27-25).

This is the first time that the Big Green has won its home invite since 2015.

Dartmouth’s Emma Engstrom was chosen tournament MVP. Engstrom was a defensive standout, amassing 26 digs in the Holy Cross victory. Teammates Ellie Blain and Karen Murphy joined Engstrom on the all-tourney side.

The Big Green plays in the Hartford Invitational this weekend.
