Volleyball Topped by Temple, 3-1
Colonials Drop Seventh Straight in Series With Owls
Oct. 5, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - Temple junior Xu Yun smashed 26 kills and hit .468 to lead Temple past GW, 28-30, 30-24, 30-15, 30-25, in an Atlantic 10 clash Saturday afternoon at Smith Center. It marked the Colonials' seventh straight loss to the Owls spanning the last four seasons.
Juniors Ruth Lazzari (Seal Beach, CA/Connelly) and Sarah Hokom (Caldwell, ID/Caldwell) paced the Colonials with 13 kills each. Hokom added a team-high 17 digs for her seventh straight double-double in the one-hour, 52-minute match on Parents and Alumni Weekend.
Temple (13-5, 5-0 A-10) hit .249 as a team with 68 kills compared to .045 for GW (43 kills).
After a pair of classic battles in games one and two, the third game was closely contested early before a sharp momentum shift occurred in favor of the Owls. With Temple clinging to an 12-10 lead, the Owls' Yamit Haba chased down a deflected attack well beyond the endline and kicked the ball back over her head. Her teammates converted the miraculous save into a kill and Temple cruised to a 30-15 victory.
GW last defeated the Owls on November 14, 1998 but still leads the all-time series, 31-23.
GW (10-7, 2-2) hosts Georgetown in a local non-conference rivalry Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at Smith Center. Georgetown is coached by former GW standout Liu Li.
