Tigers Drop Cavaliers in Three Games
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Cindy Stern finished with 21 kills and four blocks to lead Clemson to a 3-0 victory over Virginia in a match played at Jervey Gym in Clemson, S.C. Virginia was paced by Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep), who tallied 25 assists. UVa dropped its fifth Atlantic Coast Conference match in its last six tries.
Alison Coday helped the Clemson attack, which finished the match with a .333 hitting percentage, as she finished with 12 kills. Clemson (17-2, 5-2) bounced back from an upset loss last weekend at the hands of a winless (within the ACC) North Carolina State squad. Michelle Thieke quarterbacked the Tigers attack and finished with 41 assists.
Virginia (13-10, 2-5 ACC) again featured a balanced attack as Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) led the Cavaliers with eight kills and four blocks. Andrea Fischer (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) also chipped in seven kills for a UVa squad which has now gone three ACC matches without having a player reach double figures in kills.
The Cavaliers head to Atlanta, Ga. tomorrow for another ACC match. Virginia will take on Georgia Tech in O'Keefe Gym at 7:00 pm.
