Sept. 3, 2004
IRVINE, CA -- The George Washington volleyball team opened the 2004 season in valiant fashion winning game two, 30-24, before losing games three (30-19) and four (30-25) to the 24th-ranked Utah Utes Friday at the University of California at Irvine.
Sophomore Juliene McLaughlin slammed a team-high 13 kills to lead the Colonials. Utah (3-0) had too much firepower, though, and hit .333 as a team with 63 kills. The Utes also brought their defense to the match recording 22 total blocks and 50 digs. Utah was led by Kelsie Kartchner's match-high 16 kills and 25 assists as one of three Utes with double-figure kills.
After dropping game one, 30-19, GW roared back to win the second game and tie the match at 1-1. It marked the first time the Utes had lost a game in three matches this season.
GW juniors Lindsey Vernand and Shannon Parks each pounded nine kills in a one-hour, 51-minute match. Sophomore Kelly Kabbes hit and errorless .421 with eight kills in 19 swings and four block assists.
GW sophomore setter Kaimana Lee had 32 assists and 13 digs for the second double-double of her career.
As a team, GW hit .163 (47-25-135) with 42 digs. The Colonials also scored eight points on service aces compared to 10 aces for Utah.
GW (0-1) remains in Southern California to compete in the two-day UC Irvine Tournament. GW faces William & Mary Friday at 8 p.m. (EST) and plays Northeastern Saturday at 5:30 p.m. before taking on the host Anteaters of UC Irvine at 10:30 p.m. (EST) Saturday
