CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas/Tascosa) had 12 kills, including the 1,000th of her career, to lead Virginia to a three-game victory over Virginia Tech in a non-conference match played at Memorial Gymnasium. Mitchell became the fourth Cavalier to reach the milestone as Virginia extended its winning streak over their in-state rival to three matches.

Deanna Zwarich (Overland Park, Kan./Shawnee Mission North) had 11 kills and two blocks, while Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) had 10 kills, seven digs, and four blocks to lead Virginia (16-11, 4-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) to its second consecutive win. Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) consistently set the table for Virginia and finished with 44 assists.

Mitchell, who also led the Cavaliers with 11 digs, joins Greta Jansson (1,465), Ann Marie Hammers (1,420), and Courtney Stanton (1,413), as the only Virginia athletes to reach the 1,000-kill plateau.

"[The milestone] is something that has been in the back of my mind for a few matches, but I've tried to not let it change my approach. I owe this top all my teammates during my four years at Virginia. It is extra special because we won and that is the most important thing," said Mitchell.

Corrie Bundy led Virginia Tech (12-11, 7-5 Atlantic 10) with 13 kills, while Britton Jullan netted 33 assists in the loss.

Virginia returns to the court this weekend as they host a pair of conference games at Memorial Gymnasium. Friday at 7:00 pm, Georgia Tech come to town for a Halloween Night affair before Clemson comes calling on Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.
