Cavaliers Drop Two at New Mexico Tourney
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Amanda Berg had 15 kills and Melissa Lucas added 45 assists to lead Idaho State to a 3-1 victory over Virginia in the final game of the Domino's Pizza Classic, being hosted by the University of New Mexico. Earlier in the day, New Mexico defeated the Cavaliers in four games.
Berg was one of three Idaho State player to record at least 12 kills. Tair Sciezinski had 13 and Penny Sneddon added 12 for the Bengals.
Virginia (4-4) was led by Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) and Claire Folga (Atlanta, Ga./Marist Academy) who had 15 and 13 kills, respectively. Folga led Virginia with 14 digs, while Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) quarterbacked the UVa offense and tallied 45 assists. First-year sensation Deanna Zwarich (Overland Park, Shawnee Mission North) continued her solid play, finishing with 10 kills and five block assists for the Cavaliers.
In the afternoon game, New Mexico (2-3) received 16 kills and 17 digs from Amber Smith as the Lobos defeated Virginia, 3-1. Parsons led the Cavaliers with 18 kills, while Scott once again led UVa with 43 assists. Folga had 12 kills and a game-high 21 digs to keep it close for Virginia. The Lobos defense forced 34 UVa hitting errors to earn the victory.
With the two losses, UVa has now lost three straight matches. The last time Virginia lost three in a row was in November of 1995, when UVa dropped five straight to end the season.
Virginia will attempt to bounce back at next weekend's Marshall Tournament in Huntington, W. Va. The tournament will feature Marshall, Indiana (Big Ten Conference) and Cincinnati (Conference-USA). UVa's first match will be Friday, September 12 against the Marshall (7:00 pm).
