GW Volleyball Set to Host GW/NIKE Invitational This Weekend
Colonials Welcome #15 BYU, Princeton & New Hampshire to the Charles E. Smith Center
Sept. 13, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington volleyball team will welcome No. 15 BYU, Princeton and New Hampshire to the Charles E. Smith Center this weekend for the 26th installment of the George Washington/NIKE Invitational.
The Colonials will open the tournament against Princeton on Friday evening at 7 p.m., before hosting New Hampshire and nationally-ranked No. 15 BYU on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., respectively.
A full tournament schedule, along with ticket information and live coverage links, is available at Tournament Central (link).
The Colonials hold a combined all-time record of 6-5 against the tournament field, including a 6-4 mark against Princeton. GW fell to BYU in straight sets in their only meeting during the 1993 season and has never faced New Hampshire.
GW (2-9) is looking to rebound from a three-loss weekend against a difficult field at the Spring Hill Suites at Arundel Mills Invitational at Maryland. The Colonials suffered setbacks to No. 16 Tennessee, Maryland and Boston College over the weekend.
Senior Lauren Whyte paces the Colonials attack with 136 kills while sophomore Kelsey Newman ranks second on the team with 102 kills. Redshirt freshman setter Jessica Lubic has tallied 366 assists (9.38/set) in her debut season.
The Colonials opened their home schedule last Wednesday with a 3-2 win over UMBC. GW's home record under head coach Amanda Ault improved to 13-1 with the victory and the Colonials now have a record of 35-10 on Tex Silverman Court over the past five seasons.
At last season's GW Invitational, the Colonials swept the field of UNC-Wilmington, North Carolina Central and Central Connecticut State to claim the tournament championship and run their all-time record in the event to 74-25.
