Volleyball Dumps Duquesne, 3-0
Balanced Attack Results in Key A-10 Victory
Nov. 2, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - The GW Volleyball team salvaged a split of the season series with Duquesne and took another step toward a berth in the Atlantic 10 Tournament Saturday by sweeping the visiting Dukes, 30-24, 30-24, 30-28, at Smith Center Saturday night. GW junior Sarah Hokom (Caldwell, ID/Caldwell) was one of four different Colonials with double-figure kills as the co-captain slammed a match-high 15 kills with 14 digs.
GW junior Ruth Lazzari (Seal Beach, CA/Connelly) and freshman Lindsey Vernand (Huntington Beach, CA/Huntington Beach) added 14 kills each and added 19 and eight digs, respectively, in the one-hour, 27-minute match. Sophomore Katie Downey (Caldwell, ID/Caldwell) hit a respectable .444 with 10 kills and two errors in 18 swings and assisted on four blocks.
The victory avenged a 3-1 loss to Duquesne back on Oct. 12 in Pittsburgh.
Duquesne (15-11, 4-6 A-10) was led by Diana Wuebker with 12 kills while teammate Erin Trageser added 16 digs.
The Colonials' offense had one of its more efficient outings of the season by hitting .268 (59-19-149) as a team compared to .128 (41-23-141) for Duquesne.
After relatively easy GW victories in the first two games, Duquesne made things interesting in game three by closing to 28-27 when Trageser and Sarah Morrow combined to block a Hokom attack. Hokom responded with a kill on the next rally for a 29-27 advantage but Duquesne's Ashley Macko answered with a kill to pull within 29-28. Macko then served what would be the final volley as Vernand took a set from junior co-captain Lauren Dunning (Stockton, CA/St. Mary's) and smashed a kill to end the match.
GW (15-10, 6-4 A-10) travels to Philadelphia next Friday for a match with Temple followed by a match at La Salle Saturday.
