Volleyball Takes The High Rhode, 3-2
Colonials Prevail, 15-13, in Game Five Over Rhode Island
Oct. 19, 2002
KINGSTON, RI - The GW volleyball team won the first two games, 30-27, 30-22, before dropping games three and four but rebounded to win game five Saturday night in Rhode Island. The Colonials outlasted the Rams, 30-27, 30-22, 21-30, 28-30 and 15-13 in a two-hour, 37-minute A-10 marathon. The victory evened GW's conference record at 3-3 as they prepared to play Fordham Sunday in the Bronx.
Freshman Lindsey Vernand (Huntington Beach,CA/Huntington Beach) posted her first career 20-20 performance in easily the best outing of her young career. The California native slammed her career-high 24 kills in 56 attacks while committing just five errors for a .339 percentage.
Junior co-captain Sarah Hokom (Caldwell, ID/Caldwell) also added 23 kills, including three in the decisive fifth game with Vernand digging three attacks in game five as well.
The Rams, who have lost six matches to teams ranked in the Top 25 this season, fell to 6-13 overall, 2-4 in the A-10. GW will host the Rams on Nov. 16 in Washington.
GW (12-9, 3-3 A-10) plays the A-10's other Rams, Fordham, in a 2:00 p.m. matinee Sunday in New York.
