BOWLING GREEN, Ky.—The Virginia volleyball team dropped a 3-1 decision (25-23, 18-25, 25-19, 25-19) to No. 21 Western Kentucky Friday night (Sept. 13) on the first day of the Western Kentucky Invitational. With the loss, the Cavaliers fell to 4-3 on the season, while the Hilltoppers improved to 6-3.

WKU hit .310 to UVa’s .264 and led in blocks, 9-4. Virginia had the edge in service aces, 7-6, but had 11 errors to the Hilltoppers’ seven.

The Cavaliers were led by junior Tori Janowski (Sterling, Va.), who had a match-high 19 kills, and sophomore Lauren Fuller (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) posted a double-double with 48 assists and 13 digs.
