Maryland Downs Virginia in Three Games

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Kim Adolphs and Elizabeth Efron had 14 kills to lead #19 Maryland to a 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over Virginia in a match played at Memorial Gymnasium. The Terps Eden Kroeger quarterbacked the Maryland's offense and finished with 44 assists as the Terps remained undefeated. Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas/Tascosa) led Virginia with 11 kills.

Virginia was without the services of three of its top offensive hitters. Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz.Independence), Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville), and Claire Folga (Atlanta, Ga./Marist Academy) all missed the match with undisclosed injuries. Mitchell picked up her slack for UVa by posting her third "double-double" of the season as she had 12 digs to couple with her 11 kills. Virginia (11-7, 1-2 ACC) lost their second straight match, both within the ACC, despite 34 assists from Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep).

Maryland (12-0 ,3-0 ACC) won its 23rd consecutive ACC regular season match with the win. Jamie Summers chipped in 10 kills and three of the Terps five solo blocks as Maryland tied Clemson with a perfect 3-0 conference mark.

Virginia returns to action Tuesday night when they travel to Richmond, Va. to battle Virginia Commonwealth at 7:00 pm. Maryland gets a week of rest before they host Wake Forest on Friday, October 10. That match is slated to begin at 7:00 pm.
