WASHINGTON - The George Washington volleyball team returned to action on Wednesday evening but fell in three sets at Georgetown at McDonough Arena. Set scores were 13-25, 21-25, 22-25.
GW (3-4) got off to a slow start in the first set and Georgetown (4-4) took advantage as the Hoyas swung .250 (13k-3e-40a) on the way to a 25-13 victory.
The Colonials played much better in the second set but the Hoyas did just enough to post a 25-21 victory to take a 2-0 lead in the match. The Colonials took an early 4-2 lead in the set before Georgetown rallied to tie the score at 4-4. From there, the teams traded points before the Hoyas pulled ahead by three at 15-12. Georgetown maintained the advantage the rest of the way on the way to the 25-21 win.
The third set was the best of the match for the Colonials, as GW swung .364 with just four attack errors. GW took an early 7-4 lead in the frame on the strength of a serving run by freshman Loren Williams, before Georgetown responded with a 6-3 run to tie the set at 10-10.
From there, the Hoyas applied pressure down the stretch and maintained a two-point cushion before expanding the lead to 19-16, forcing a GW timeout. Out of the break, the Colonials were able to pull within one point of the lead at 21-20 but the Hoyas finished the match on a 4-2 run to clinch the sweep.
Defensively, sophomore Maddy Doyle finished with a match-high 17 digs while freshman Chidima Osuchukwu totaled four blocks (one solo, three assist). Sophomore Maggie Skjelbred was also active on the net for the Colonials, adding four block assists in addition to three kills and four digs.
The Colonials return to action this weekend at the Carolina Classic at Carmichael Arena. GW faces No. 18 North Carolina on Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. before a doubleheader on Saturday against Albany (10:00 a.m.) and James Madison (5:30 p.m.).
