Generals Sweep Volleyball

LEXINGTON, Va. - Host Washington and Lee prevented Shenandoah University from earning its third ODAC volleyball victory of the season with a 3-0 victory over the Hornets Tuesday night.

The Generals (15-7, 6-1 ODAC) won at 16, 19 and 20 over SU (9-10, 2-5). 

The victory is the second this season for W&L over the Hornets. Two weekends ago at the Gallaudet Worthington Classic, the Generals were 3-1 victors.

Shenandoah jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the opening set Tuesday, but saw the hosts score nine of the next 14 points in the match to take a 10-9 lead.

SU was able to regroup and take a 12-10 advantage before the Generals took the lead for good on a 5-0 run.

W&L scored 13 of the final 17 points of the set.

The Generals held a lead throughout all of the second and the first half of the third before Shenandoah scored five straight points (four with Mary Harshman at the service line) to take a 12-10 lead.

SU maintained this two-point advantage until the Generals made their final run, this one 9-2, to clinch the victory.

Harshman paced the Hornets with 10 kills while Samantha Schamach added seven.

Blake Parkes and Kelcy Brown had 12 and 10 assists, respectively, with Nicole Mueller posting 15 digs.

Shenandoah is back in action on Saturday in a home non-conference match against Lancaster Bible. This match, which was just added to the schedule this week, will start at 6:00.
