Volleyball Continues Road Swing with Two Matches
Colonials will clash with Rhode Island (Fri., 7 p.m.) and Fordham (1 p.m.) this weekend
LEADING OFF: The GW volleyball team will play the third and fourth matches of its current seven-match stretch away from home this weekend when it visits Rhode Island (Fri., 7 p.m.) and Fordham (Sun., 1 p.m.) for a pair of Atlantic 10 matches.
LAST TIME OUT: GW opened A-10 play by splitting its first weekend of conference matches. The Colonials rallied to knock off La Salle, 3-2, on Friday night before falling in four sets at Duquesne on Sunday.
COMEBACK KIDS: Friday's win at La Salle was the second time this season GW had to erase a big deficit to storm back for the win. Against the Explorers, the Colonials trailed 2-1 in the match and fought off match point seven times in the fifth set before completing the comeback.
In the season opener against Wofford at the UT Classic, GW fought all the way back from being down 2-0 in the match to win in five sets.
BIG BLOCKING WEEKEND: GW posted 12.0 team blocks in both matches last weekend. The total is the third time this season they have achieved 12.0 team blocks in a game and is tied for the second-highest, single-match total of the year behind 17.0 rejections against LIU Brooklyn.
As a team, the Colonials rank third in the Atlantic 10 with 116.5 total blocks and fourth overall with 1.91 blocks per set.
FORMIDABLE FRESHMAN: Rookie Sydney Welch is putting together an impressive freshman campaign as the Colonials' libero. She ranks seventh overall in the Atlantic 10 with an average of 3.77 digs per set and is the only freshmen to rank amongst the top ten players in the conference in that category.
She leads the Colonials with 230 total digs, a number that ranks fifth overall in the conference.
SERIES RUNDOWN: Rhode Island leads the all-time series, 37-32. The teams have been even over the last ten matches, with each squad owning five victories. The Rams won last year's meeting in four sets in Kingston.
GW is 32-9 all-time against Fordham and has won seven of the last nine matches played between the two teams.
