Big Road Win For Hollins

Bluefield, WV - Hollins University Volleyball at Bluefield State College, October 25, 2013

Box score

The Hollins volleyball team started their four match, end of season road trip with a visit to Bluefield, WV.  Hollins traveled to face a Bluefield State team that they had defeated at home earlier in the season.

Hollins was hoping to get off to a quick start against a Blues team that they had defeated, 3-0, on October 3rd.  The visitors got exactly what they were looking for by taking the first set, 25-15.  The second set was more of the same and behind a 13 kill effort, Hollins took a 2-0 lead by winning the set, 25-19.  Hollins started the third set looking for a second sweep of Bluefield State, but the tasked proved to be tougher than they first thought.  The two teams battled point for point until Hollins pulled away for a 25-20 final set victory and a sweep of the Blues.
