Volleyball Falls to No. 8 Utah, 3-0
Colonials Plagued by Hitting Errors, Ute Blocking
Sept. 14, 2002
BOISE, ID - The GW volleyball team played 8th-ranked Utah close in the first game but couldn't hold on as the Utes overwhelmed the Colonials with 47 kills, 11 service aces and 12 total blocks to win, 30-27, 30-21, 30-21, Saturday afternoon in the Boise State Invitational. GW went 1-2 in the tournament to place third behind champion Eastern Washington and Utah and ahead of host Boise State.
Junior Ruth Lazzari (Seal Beach, CA/Connelly) again paced GW with a team-high 11 kills and seven digs at the BSU Pavilion. As a team, GW committed 28 attack errors, 12 of which were the results of Utah blocks, for a .058 hitting percentage. GW committed six service errors and recorded a season-low 26 digs. It marked the first match this year that no Colonial registered double figures in digs.
The Utes (7-2), still stinging from a 3-0 loss to Eastern Washington Friday night, pounded 47 kills in 97 swings with just 19 errors for a .289 attack percentage. Kim Turner led the Utes with 14 kills.
GW (6-4) next competes in the Pittsburgh Classic Sept. 20-21, at the University of Pittsburgh. The Colonials first match is against Maryland-Baltimore County, a team they swept August 31 in the Maryland Invitational.
