Sept. 20, 2003
COLUMBIA, SC - The GW volleyball team rallied from two games down to win, 3-2, over Duke Saturday afternoon at the Gamecock Invitational on the campus of the University of South Carolina. Like their match earlier Saturday against the host Gamecocks, GW lost the first two games to the Blue Devils but, unlike the USC match, rallied to win the final three games to go 1-2 in the tournament.
GW senior Laura Harrison paced the Colonials with 18 kills and had 12 digs while fellow senior Ruth Lazzari slammed 16 kills with 16 digs. Sophomore Shannon Parks added eight kills and was in on six blocks for the Colonials in a match that lasted just over the two-hour mark.
For the third straight match, GW was out-hit .098 (57-37-205) to the Blue Devils' .216 (67-27-185). Duke's Tealle Hunkus led the Blue Devils with 16 kills and Tassy Rufai added 11 digs.
The Colonials (11-2) claimed third place in the four-team tournament after losing to No. 17 Santa Clara Friday and South Carolina earlier Saturday. Senior Sarah Hokom was named to the All-Tournament team. Also named to the All-Tournament team were: Becky Potter of Santa Clara who was named MVP; Kellia Sousa, SCU; Cassie Perret, SCU; Lynae VandenHull, South Carolina; Lauren Ford, South Carolina and Duke's Krista Dill.
GW (10-2) returns home to host Duquesne in a 7:00 pm match Saturday at Smith Center.
