Volleyball Downs UMBC, 3-1
Hokom Slams Career-High 21 Kills
Aug. 31, 2002
COLLEGE PARK, MD - Junior Sarah Hokom (Caldwell, ID/Caldwell) recorded a match-high 21 kills hitting .333 with 16 digs to power the Colonials to their first victory of the season, 3-1, over the University of Maryland-Baltimore County Saturday in the Maryland Invitational. It marked Hokom's career-high in kills surpassing her previous best of 20 against Fordham on October 28, 2001.
GW got a balanced offensive attack with six different Colonials pounding seven or more kills each in the two-hour, 15-minute match. Freshman Lindsey Vernand (Huntington Beach,CA/Huntington) and sophomore Molly Law (Denver, CO/Mullen) each had eight kills with Vernand contributing 19 digs and a block solo in just her second collegiate match. A trio of Colonials posted seven kills each.
UMBC (1-1) was led by sophomore Julia Waclawiak's 13 kills. GW out-hit the Retrievers .216 to .152 and had 105 digs to 85 for UMBC in the match.
The Colonials (1-1) had a chance to close out the Retrievers in three games. In the third game, the teams were tied at 25 when UMBC captured the momentum and took a 27-25 lead. A pair of kills by Law kept GW within one. Following a GW timeout, UMBC took a 29-27 lead before a service error again reduced the lead to one at 29-28 before the Retrievers scored for the victory.
Game four was even closer as the Colonials needed 32 points to break a tie at 30 and end the match.
GW's next match is against Binghamton (0-2) at 5:00 p.m. at Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.
