Hollins Swarmed by Yellow Jackets

Ashland, VA - Hollins University Volleyball at Randolph Maconn College September 14, 2012

Box Score

Less than 24 hours since opening ODAC play against Virginia Wesleyan, Hollins was back in action this time against conference power Randolph-Macon.  The Yellow Jackets were selected to finish first in the ODAC preseason coaches poll.

The home team wasted no time in taking control early in the match.  Macon cruised to a 25-15 opening set victory.  Hollins kept the second set closer but it wasn't enough as the heavily favored Yellow Jackets took the second frame 25-17.  Hoping to extend the match Hollins had their best offensive set of the match with 11 kills, but it wasn't enough as Randolph-Macon took the match three sets to none.

Emily Lowther (Woodbridge, VA) led Hollins with four kills and 11 digs.  Ally Reed (Sterling, VA) also dug 11 balls and added three kills and a service ace.  Lela Moore (Woodleaf, NC) handed out 10 assists while Jordan Persinger (New Castle, VA) and Lauren Hays (Saginaw, TX) each blocked two attacks.

Hollins will continue their ODAC road trip with a date in Lynchburg on Wednesday night.  The match with the Hornets is set to begin at 7:00pm.
