Clemson Blocks Out Virginia in Three Games
Mitchell One Dig Shy of Reaching Another Milestone
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Alison Cody had 12 kills and nine digs to spark Clemson to a 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over Virginia, in a match played at Memorial Gym. The Tigers used superior height and five blocks from Cindy Stern to out-block the Cavaliers 12-6.
In addition to the blocks, Stern chipped in with 11 kills as Clemson bounced back from a five-game loss to Maryland on Friday evening. Michelle Thieke quarterbacked the Tiger offense and notched seven kills and 31 digs. Skye Frost finished with a team-high 11 digs for Clemson.
Virginia (16-13, 4-8 ACC) was led by Claire Folga (Atlanta, Ga./Marist Academy) and her 19 kills and 12 digs. Also finishing with 12 digs for the Cavaliers was Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas/Tascosa). The fourth-year, who also tallied 11 kills, is now just one dig shy of reaching the 1,000-dig plateau. Mitchell can join Ann Marie Hammers and Courtney Stanton as the only Cavaliers to appear on on both the 1,000-dig and 1,000-kill lists.
Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) finished with 50 digs, as Virginia lost for the third time in four ACC matches.
Clemson (20-5, 8-5 ACC) hit .239 for the match, while UVa countered with a .163 hitting percentage.
Virginia travels to College Park, Md. for a Tuesday evening match (7:00 pm) with undefeated, ACC leader Maryland.
