Oct. 11, 2002
LORETTO, PA - The GW Volleyball team defeated St. Francis, 30-26, 30-20, 30-22, in a non-conference match at Loretto, PA, Friday night. The victory served two purposes for the Colonials. GW needed a victory to snap a two-match skid and used the match as a tune-up for Saturday's A-10 Conference clash with Duquesne in Pittsburgh.
GW junior Sarah Hokom (Caldwell, ID/Caldwell) led all players with 12 kills and added seven digs. Junior Ruth Lazzari (Seal Beach, CA/Connelly) was the only other Colonial in double-figure kills with 11 but added a match-high 13 digs. Junior co-captain Lauren Dunning (Stockton, CA/St. Mary's) contributed 25 assists and scored three points on service aces.
Sophomore Katie Downey (Caldwell, ID/Caldwell) hit an efficient .385 (6-1-13) with a pair of blocks.
Saint Francis's Emily Turza led the Red Flash with 11 kills and teammate Jaclyn Kessler hit .462 (8-2-13) with four blocks.
St. Francis (10-11) hit .147 (32-17-102) as a team compared to .274 (50-19-113) for GW.
GW (11-8, 2-2 Atlantic 10) continues on to Pittsburgh for its meeting with Duquesne Saturday at 5:00 p.m.
