Nov. 7, 2003
CINCINNATI, OH - The GW volleyball team took Xavier to the limit before falling, 30-23, 16-30, 27-30, 30-19, 12-15 Friday in a two-hour, 15-minute A-10 battle at Cintas Center in Cincinnati. Senior Ruth Lazzari slammed a match-high 23 kills with 18 digs as one of three Colonials with double-doubles.
The loss gave the Colonials a season split with Xavier after defeating the Musketeers 3-2 on Oct. 11 at Smith Center.
Xavier (10-14, 4-6 A-10) was led by Kate Duchek's 21 kills and Danielle Skrajewski's 20 digs.
As a team, GW hit .115 (64-39-217) compared to .156 (62-30-205) for Xavier. The Colonials also scored eight points on service aces compared to six aces for Xavier.
After the teams split the first four games, Xavier jumped out to an early 3-1 lead in game five on a kill by Astyn Bjorklund.
GW rallied to knot the score at 4-4 and after the teams traded the next few points, XU took the lead for good at 9-8 on a kill by Duchek.
A Musketeer run gave XU a 13-10 lead after another kill by Duchek. The Colonials mounted a comeback but would fall short in the end as Skrajewski capped the match with kill in the middle of the floor off a feed from setter Marisa Main.
GW (19-7, 7-4 A-10) travels to Dayton Saturday to play the first-place Flyers in a 5 p.m. match. The Colonials lost, 3-1, to Dayton back on Oct. 10 in Washington.
