Red-hot Yellow Jackets Down Cavaliers in Three Games
UVa Set to Face Clemson Tomorrow Evening
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Danielle Olein and Rochelle Komula had 17 and 16 kills, respectively, as Georgia Tech defeated Virginia, 3-0, in an Atlantic Coast Conference match played at Memorial Gymnasium. The Yellow Jackets attack produced 58 kills, including 34 from Olein and Komula, as Georgia Tech hit an outstanding .323 as a team.
Virginia received 13 kills from Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) and 40 assists from Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep). Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz./Independence) also chipped in nine kills for the Cavalier offense. UVa hit .150 as a team. The loss snapped a two-match winning streak for the Cavaliers.
With the loss, Virginia head coach Melissa Aldrich Shelton failed in her first attempt to record her 50th career coaching victory. If UVa can win just one of its next four matches, Aldrich Shelton will have reached her 50th victory faster than any other coach in Virginia history.
Carla Gartner notched 10 kills for the Yellow Jackets, who erased a 7-0 Cavalier lead in the second game to win 15-8. Carolyn Clevenger paced the Georgia Tech attack and finished with 48 assists.
The taller Georgia Tech team out-blocked Virginia, 11-5.
Virginia returns to the court tomorrow evening for another ACC match against Clemson at 7:30 pm. Admission is free.
