Cavaliers Top James Madison in Four Games
HARRISONBURG, Va. - Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz./Independence) had 18 kills and three blocks to lead Virginia to a 3-1 win over James Madison in a match played at Godwin Hall. Wahlers led a balanced UVa attack that featured five players with at least 10 kills. Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) quarterbacked the Virginia attack and finished with 48 assists.
The Cavaliers used a powerful serving game to spark their offense and a tight blocking game to ignite their defense. Katie Jones (Kingwood, Texas/Kingwood) had four service aces for the Cavaliers, who had more aces than the Dukes by a 10-2 margin. On defense, Virginia out-blocked their host, 12-9. Scott led the Cavaliers with two solo blocks and four block assists. James Madison (1-3) was led by Lindsay Collingwood, who amassed a game-high 20 kills.
Joining Wahlers with double-figure kill totals were Jones, Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas/Tascosa), and Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) with 12 each. Deanna Zwarich (Overland Park, Kan./Shawnee Mission North) notched her second straight match in double-figures. She finished with 10 kills.
Virginia (4-1) travels to Albuquerque for this weekend's New Mexico Invitational. The Cavaliers kick-off the tournament with a 5:00 pm (MDT) game against West Coast conference power, Pepperdine.
