Cavaliers Split at Marshall Tournament
HUNTINGTON, W. Va. - Jessica Parson (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) had 20 kills and 11 blocks as Virginia topped Cincinnati 3-1 in the final match of the Radisson/Thundering Herd Invitational. Earlier in the day, Virginia fell to Indiana, 3-0, despite 13 kills and nine digs from Claire Folga (Atlanta, Ga./Marist Academy). Virginia (6-5) completed the two-day tournament with a 2-1 record and finished second to Indiana.
Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz./Independence) had 13 kills and 11 digs, while Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) chipped in with 49 assists in the win over Cincinnati. Virginia's quick defense forced 35 Bearcat hitting errors as Cincinnati (4-6) managed to hit just 12.1 percent (.121) for the match. Parsons was in on 11 of the Cavaliers 19 blocks. Denee Scheidt led Cincinnati with 18 kills.
In the afternoon match, Scott led the UVa offense with 30 assists, but 22 hitting errors doomed the Cavaliers. Parsons had another big game for Virginia as she tallied 10 kills and six digs. Katie Jones (Kingwood, Texas/Kingwood) tallied 16 digs for UVa, while Julie Flatley led a balanced Hoosier attack with 10 kills.
Folga was the lone Cavalier to earn all-tournament status.
