COLUMBIA, SC - Despite 17 kills and 10 digs from senior Sarah Hokom, the GW volleyball team lost its second straight match Saturday morning to South Carolina, 3-2 (30-20, 30-22, 27-30, 27-30, 15-9), at the Gamecock Invitational on the campus of the University of South Carolina. After losing the first two game, GW extended the match to a fifth game but fell short in game five despite Hokom's second straight double-double.
For the second straight match, GW was out-hit .071 (49-36-183) to the Gamecocks' .183 (69-34-191). South Carolina's Lynae Vanden Hull pounded 21 kills and hit .405 with 13 digs. Teammate Lauren Ford added 14 kills and Nicole Miller added a match-high 20 digs.
GW sophomore Abigail Hatter hit an efficient .333 with eight kills in 21 attacks while commiting just one error with a block solo and two block assists in the two-hour, 10-minute match.
The Gamecocks (6-6) clinched second place in the tournament after losing to No. 17 Santa Clara, 3-2, on Thursday evening.
GW (10-2) plays Duke (4-7) at 3:00 pm Saturday in its final match of the Gamecock Invitational. The Blue Devils also have lost matches to Santa Clara and South Carolina in the tournament.
