Volleyball Returns Home for A-10 Matches

Oct. 12, 2017

LEADING OFF: The George Washington volleyball team will be in action at the Charles E. Smith Center twice this weekend, first with a match against VCU on Friday night at 7 p.m. The Colonials will then play host to Davidson on Saturday afternoon at 5 p.m.

HOME SWEET HOME: Friday's match marks the first home match in nearly a month following the Colonials' seven-match swing away from home. GW last played at home on September 19, a total of 24 days.

WINE DOWN ON FRIDAY: Friday marks the return of the popular promotion Wine Down Fridays at the Colonials Club of the Smith Center. The cost is $10 and includes an open bar with a selection of wines for fans of age. Coupled with the price of a single-match ticket, the total cost is just $16.

LAST TIME OUT: GW concluded its road swing with a 3-0 loss at American on Wednesday night at Bender Arena. Freshman Marianna Warren led the Colonials with nine kills while freshman Sydney Welch led both teams with 17 digs.

PACK THE BAGS AGAIN: GW heads right back onto the road following this weekend's matches for their final road matches of the regular season at Saint Louis (Oct. 20) and Dayton (Oct. 22).

STAY AWHILE: After next weekend's road trip, GW will play its final five matches of the regular season at the Smith Center, all against opponents they will have played during the season. The opponents for the stretch of home matches are Duquesne, George Mason, La Salle, Dayton and Saint Louis.

SCOUTING VCU: The Rams enter Friday's match with the best overall record in the Atlantic 10 at 19-2, along with a perfect 5-0 mark in the Atlantic 10.

SERIES HISTORY: GW leads the all-time series, 20-10, but the Rams won both meetings last season.

SCOUTING DAVIDSON: Davidson carries an 8-10 overall record and 1-4 match in the Atlantic 10 into its Friday match at George Mason. The Wildcats have lost four matches in a row.

SERIES HISTORY: GW is 5-2 in seven all-time meetings against the Wildcats. The teams split last season's matches with each team winning at home.
