Oct. 26, 2004
FAIRFAX, VA -- The GW Volleyball team lost for the ninth straight match, 3-0, to George Mason Tuesday night in Fairfax, VA. The Patriots won the match, 30-25, 30-24, 35-33, in 88 minutes at GMU's Linn Memorial Gym.
Although the Colonials had a poor hitting performance with 38 kills for a .105 percentage, the Patriots weren't much better with a .185 percentage on 50 kills.
The loss dropped the reeling Colonials to 4-17 while George Mason improved to 11-7.
GW junior Shannon Parks paced the Colonials attack with a team-high nine kills and had a pair of blocks but hit just .179. Teammate Abigail Hatter was more efficient hitting and errorless .545 with six kills in 11 attempts. GW freshman Janine Brown had another solid outing with seven kills and a team-high 10 digs. Sophomore Juliene McLaughlin was held to her season-low one kill.
The Colonials nearly pulled off the victory in game three. With GW leading 29-27, Mason scored three straight points to take a 30-29 lead. Brown then pounded a kill to knot the game at 30-30 and force the extra rally. GMU's Jaqueline Kohler responded with a kill before Hatter spiked a kill and Brown blocked a Patriot attack to put GW up, 32-31. After a Mason point to again tie the game, GW's Lindsey Vernand recorded her fourth kill of the match to stake GW to a 33-32 lead. A GW error was followed by a Jessica Umansky kill to end the match.
GMU was led by Niki Bernardes' 13 kills and Zulma Rojas' 14 digs.
GW next travels to Philadelphia Friday for a 7:00 p.m. match with arch-nemesis Temple before taking on La Salle Saturday at 5:00 p.m.
