WASHINGTON - Junior Kelsey Newman totaled a match-high 17 kills but the George Washington volleyball team was defeated by Rhode Island, 3-1, on Sunday afternoon at the Charles E. Smith Center. Set scores were 22-25, 22-25, 25-23, 18-25.
GW (14-12, 9-3 A-10) concludes its regular-season schedule next weekend with visits to Saint Louis (Fri., 7 p.m. ET) and Dayton (Sun, 1 p.m. ET).
Rhode Island (14-15, 6-7 A-10) used a balance attack with three players recording double-digit kills to end GW's four-match win streak.
The Colonials committed 11 attack errors in the opening set which allowed Rhode Island to lead wire-to-wire en route to a 25-22 victory.
A GW rally late in the second set fell short as Rhode Island took a 2-0 lead in the match with another 25-22 victory. The Colonials trailed 18-14 before using an 8-4 run to get within two points of the lead but a kill by Franki Darnold clinched the set for the Rams.
The Colonials bounced back in the third set, opening on a 10-3 run before Rhode Island fought back to cut the deficit to three points at 19-17. The Rams then used a 4-1 run to take a brief advantage at 21-20, but the Colonials responded with a 3-1 burst to take a 23-22 lead. GW clinched the set with an attack error and kill by Rachael Goss to avoid the sweep.
Rhode Island jumped out to an 18-11 lead in the fourth set and never looked back, clinching the match with a 25-18 win.
Newman finished with 17 kills and eight digs and was joined in double figures by junior Landon Garvik, who put down 11 winners in addition to five block assists.
