Sept. 6, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - GW's Lindsey Vernand slammed seven kills in ninie swings with no errors in hitting a career-high .778 and lead the Colonials past Coppin State, 30-9, 30-11, 30-8 Saturday night in the final match of the GW Volleyball Invitational at GW's Smith Center. Coppin State's 28 points is the fewest allowed by the Colonials in the two years since the rally scoring rule was adopted by the NCAA.
The Colonials were never threatened during the one-hour, 12-minute match as they combined to hit .345 (40-10-87) compared to -.118 (10-20-85) for the Lady Eagles. All 14 Colonials played in the match with 12 different Colonials registering kills.
Sarah Hokom was voted the tournament MVP by the coaches and was joined on the all-Tournament team by teammates Lauren Dunning and Ruth Lazzari. Also voted to the All-Tournament team were Veronica Canto-Ponce of Lafayette, Villanova's Celine Nguyen and Adrian Semrau and Coppin State's Krystal Williams.
Coppin State (0-4) was led by Williams' three kills and Stacy Celestin's seven digs. Villanova defeated Lafayette, 3-0, in the third match earlier Saturday.
GW (6-0) travels to Piscataway, NJ, Friday for the Rutgers Invitational where they face St. Peter's Friday at 4:00 p.m. The Colonials will play Delaware and Rutgers Saturday.
