UVa Uses Balanced Attack to Drop Deacons

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Tamara Shulman (Dallas, Texas/Lake Highlands) and Andrea Fischer (Santa Barbara, Calif/Santa Barbara) had nine kills apiece to pace a balanced attack as Virginia downed Wake Forest in a match played at Memorial Gym. The Cavalier win snapped a three-game losing streak within the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The nine kills was a season-best effort for Shulman, who has appeared in just five matches this year due to numerous knee injuries. Shulman made just one hitting error in 17 attempts to finish with a game-high .471 hitting percentage. Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) again led the UVa attack with 34 assists.

In the second game, Virginia (13-8, 2-3 ACC) jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead before Wake Forest answered back to even the score, 5-5. Amanda Wells (Los Angeles, Calif./Marlborough) then recorded a service ace to spark a 10-0 Cavalier run. Wells finished with four of the Cavaliers 10 aces in the match.

Katie Horne led Wake Forest with five kills, while Amber Grahn finished with 15 assists.

Virginia returns to action tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 pm for a match against preseason ACC favorite Duke. The match will be played at Memorial Gym and admission is free.
