For the two matches, she avereaged 7.5 digs per set or better. Trudon played a pivotal role in Endicott's comeback victory over Babson on day two of the UMass Boston Invitational. The freshman recorded 20 digs as the Gulls came back from a 2-1 deficit to defeat the Beavers. Trudon also recorded 19 in a four set victory over the host Beacons of UMass Boston.
For the week, the libero notched 117 digs and 15 aces to add to her team leading 49 on the year. Trudon averaged 5.57 digs per set on the week and is now averaging 3.97 per set on the season.
