Csire shines as Maryland volleyball sweeps Michigan for first Big Ten win

After recording 11 kills in Maryland volleyball’s four-set loss Friday night to No. 19 Purdue, senior outside hitter Sam Csire returned to form Sunday.

“Kudos to all the sets that I got … they were putting it perfect,” Csire said. “In my head, I was just like, ‘Just switch up your shots, keep them on their toes a little bit,’ and it worked out.”

The Strongsville, Ohio, native’s 15 kills led all players as the Terps took down Michigan, 3-0 (25-20, 25-12, 25-21). The win marked Maryland’s first-ever defeat of Michigan in College Park.

“I thought the team did a really good job staying composed, and I told them after that I’m really proud,” Maryland head coach Adam Hughes said.
