The visiting Dean Bulldogs were swept by host Smith College in the morning match of the Hall Of Fame Invitational on Saturday in Northampton, Mass.

The second set followed a similar trajectory, with the Bulldogs falling behind 6-2 early and never gaining their footing. Smith rolled to a 25-5 set win.
Dean opened the final set with two of the first three points, but the hosts responded with 13 straight points to put the game out of reach and take the match.
