Volleyball Drops A-10 Opener to Duquesne, 3-0
Service Errors, Poor Defense Doom Colonials
Sept. 25, 2004
PITTSBURGH, PA -- The GW Volleyball team lost its Atlantic 10 Conference opener Friday night to Duquesne with a 30-21, 30-28, 30-25 setback in Pittsburgh. The loss broke the Colonials' three match win streak and a three-match win streak against Duquesne.
GW sophomore Juliene McLaughlin led the Colonials with 12 kills in the losing effort as the Colonials fell to 3-8, 0-1 in the Atlantic 10. The Dukes improved to 7-7 (1-0) behind the strong hitting of senior Erin Trageser and junior Stephanie Hopkins each of whom posted 13 kills while Diana Wuebker recorded a match-best 15 digs and seven blocks.
Service errors and poor defense by the Colonials proved costly as GW gave away 10 points on service miscues while Duquesne committed just four. The Dukes also had a 55-44 advantage in digs and out-blocked GW, 9-5.
After dropping game one, GW hit .300 in game two but squandered a 21-16 lead before dropping a 30-28 decision.
The Colonials combined to hit .185 (49-24-135) as a team compared to .299 (48-13-117) for Duquesne.
GW returns to Washington to host La Salle next Friday Oct. 1 for a 7 pm match followed by a match with Temple Saturday at 4 p.m. at Smith Center.
