“It’s nice to get our first ACC win,” Maes said. “We know that we’re going to be a work in progress. We’re going to continue to try to identify the things that allow us to execute and perform better.”
Third-year Lauren Dickson (Austin, Texas) paced the Cavaliers with her third-consecutive double-double, landing 10 kills with 12 digs.
Third-year Brittani Rendina (Lisle, Ill.) collected 10 digs and first-year Simone Asque (Chicago, Ill.) knocked down 10 kills. Fourth-year Shannon Davis blocked a match-high five attacks.
Fourth-year Marlow Bruneau (Lakeville, Minn.) distributed 14 assists and second-year Kelly Irvin (Pacific Palisades, Calif.) dished out 12.
Taylor Williams led Boston College with eight kills and Jordan Meredith collected 12 digs. Brittany Pierpont dished out 28 assists.
The squads battled back-and-forth to open the first set before the Cavaliers strung together a four-point run midway through the frame to jump ahead 21-16. The Eagles responded with a timeout and a four-point run of their own to cut Virginia’s lead to two, at 23-21. But kills from Dickson and Hill secured the win for Virginia, at 25-21.
The Cavaliers used an eight point run early in the second stanza to pull ahead 14-6. Virginia maintained its lead before a 4-1 run made the score 24-16. Boston College landed a kill and blocked an attack to hold the Cavaliers at set point, but Asque put the set away for the Cavaliers, at 25-18, landing a kill.
Set three was the closest in the match, featuring 13 tie scores, but the Cavaliers broke open an even 21-21 score with a kill from Davis, sparking a 4-2 run, en route to the squads first conference victory.
Virginia will return to action tomorrow evening in College Park, Md., facing Maryland at 7 p.m.
