9/24/2008

WASHINGTON- After a grueling five-set match against Washington College, the CUA volleyball team pulled together for their sixth win of the season on Wednesday evening. The team moves to 6-11 on the year.

After dropping the first set to the Shorewomen, the Cardinals came back to earn a dominating 25-16 win. CUA went on an 11-0 run to begin the set, thanks to the outstanding serves of Michaela Carroll (Amityville, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial).

In the third set of the game, the Cardinals and the Shorewomen battled back and forth for the lead.  A 15-4 run proved too be to much for CUA, as Washington handed them the 17-25 loss.

The Cards pulled together and perfectly executed their offense in the final two sets to win the match. Kim Ray (Chicago, Ill./Regina Dominican) recorded 13 digs, 11 kills, and two service aces in the victory. Kilah Fox (Philadelphia, Pa./Merion Mercy) chipped in 9 kills, and freshman Gabrielle Dipasquantonio (Middletown, Del./St. Mark's) added 16 digs. Carroll also tallied an impressive 38 assists and 13 digs of her own.

CUA looks to continue their winning ways against Susquehanna at the Salisbury Invitational Saturday. Game time is set for 6 p.m.
