Event: Volleyball - Hollins at Washington and Lee (Lexington, VA)

The lead: The Hollins volleyball team traveled north to Lexington for a tri-match, hosted by Washington and Lee. The Green and Gold would open with the Generals before taking on Virginia Wesleyan in Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) competition.

The result: Washington and Lee 3-0 (25-19, 25-11, 25-12)

How it happened: The Generals came into the matchup tied for first in the ODAC standings while Hollins is currently on the outside looking in for a berth in the 2018 ODAC Volleyball Championship Tournament. Washington and Lee proved to be an ungracious host as they used a 46-21 hitting advantage to sweep Hollins, 3-0. The first set was close, before the Generals closed on an 11-7 run to close out the frame. The next two sets would see the home team race out to 8-0 and 10-4 advantages as they pulled away in both for the three set win.

Hollins notes: 

Washington and Lee notes:

  • Allison Webb, Courtney Berry, and Meg Guignon had 34 kills with just 6 errors
  • Anna Soroka assisted on 34 of the 46 kills
  • The Generals now have a 1/2 game lead over Randolph-Macon for the ODAC lead

What's next: Hollins will go back-to-back as they take on Virginia Wesleyan at 1:00pm.
