Sept. 5, 2004
IRVINE, CA -- George Washington suffered a 3-0 sweep to host UC Irvine Saturday in the final match of the Nike/Holiday Inn Sunset Classic near Los Angeles. The Anteaters won the match, 30-21, 30-26, 30-15 to improve to 4-0 and capture the tournament title.
The loss sent GW home winless in its four matches to open the season. Northeastern placed second after dispatching William & Mary in four games relegating the Tribe to a third-place finish in the four-team field.
GW junior Lindsey Vernand, a native of nearby Huntington Beach, paced the Colonials with a team-high 12 kills in the one-hour, 25-minute match. Sophomore Juliene McLaughlin, a sophomore from Ontario, Canada, added nine kills and was selected to the all-tournament team. She led GW in kills in three of four matches over the weekend including her career-high 34 kills against William & Mary Friday.
UC Irvine hit an impressive .398 (58 kills, 15 errors, 108 attempts) as a team compared to .150 (35-19-107) for the Colonials. The Anteaters also served seven aces compared to one for GW.
Irvine's Kelly Wing and Sami Cash led the Anteaters with 12 kills each.
GW libero Jessica Vesey had 11 digs and setters Kaimana Lee and Jessica Buche had 16 and 12 assists, respectively.
