UVA Tops Georgia Tech in Five Games
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) and Claire Folga (Atlanta, Ga. Marist Academy) contributed 15 and 14 kills, respectively, as Virginia downed Georgia Tech 3-2 in a match played at O'Keefe Gym in Atlanta, Ga. The win ended Virginia's two-game losing streak within the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Battling tendinitis and hometown jitters, Folga came through with a glittering performance that featured 11 digs to go along with her 14 kills. Folga had played sparingly coming into the match. UVa's most consistent player had appeared in just four games over the Cavaliers last eight matches.
Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) quarterbacked the Virginia offense and finished with 36 assists. Virginia also received key contributions from Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas/Tascosa) and Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz./Independence). Each finished with seven kills. Mitchell also used her speed and athleticism to register 21 digs for Virginia.
Georgia Tech was led by Tori Seibert, who notched a game-high 19 kills, and setter Erin Berg, who finished with 47 assists.
After returning to Charlottesville for a week of classes and practice, the Cavaliers again head south when they travel to Duke (Friday October 24-7:30 pm) and Wake Forest (Saturday, October 25-7:00 pm) for more ACC matches.
