As a team, GW hit a respectable .320 (52-20-100) compared to .237 (39-17-93) for Delaware. The Colonials also scored nine points on service aces while the Blue Hens had seven service errors.
GW's 8-0 start equals the second-best in the 28-year history of the program. The Colonials also began the 1984 season 8-0. GW began the 1979 season with a 9-0 mark.
