Aug. 29, 2003
FAIRFAX, VA - The GW volleyball team overcame late-game deficits in the first two games en route to a 3-1 victory over the University of Cincinnati Friday night on the campus of George Mason University. After trailing 22-27 in game one, the Colonials staged a furious rally to extend the game and claim a 35-33 win. GW rallied to win game two 31-29 before GW coach Jojit Coronel emptied his bench in game three. UC outscored the Colonials 30-17 in the third game before GW captured game four, 30-24 to open its season 2-0 at the Brion's Grill/Doubletree Patriot Invitational.
GW freshman Kelly Kabbes (Cary, NC/Cardinal Gibbons) starting just her second collegiate match, recorded 10 kills in 16 attempts with just two errors for a .500 hitting percentage and assisted on four blocks.
Sophomore Abigail Hatter hit and errorless .500 (3-0-6) with four block assists as the Colonials combined for 13.5 total blocks.
GW (2-0) hit .170 (56-29-159) as a team with 65 digs compared to .223 (69-29-179) and 66 digs by the Bearcats. The Colonials greatly improved their serving from their earlier match by acing 10 serves while committing just eight service errors compared to six aces and 15 miscues by Cincinnati.
UC (1-1) was led by Julie DuPont's 23 kills and Lindsey Garrison's 26 digs. The Bearcats defeated Southwest Missouri State earlier Friday.
GW next plays Fairfield at 3:00 pm Saturday in the Invitational.
