Hollins Faces Guilford in Rematch

Greensboro, NC - Hollins University Volleyball at Guilford College, October 1, 2013

Box score

Hollins traveled the Greensboro to face ODAC foe Guilford College on Tuesday night.  The match marked the second time that the rivals have met this season as it was the Quakers that took the matchup at the Cougar Classic in early September.

After falling to the Quakers in four sets earlier in the year, Hollins looked to get out of the gate quickly in the rematch.  However, it was the home team that seized control of the match by winning the first set, 25-17.  Just as the first time the two teams met, Hollins responded in a big way in the second set as it was played close the entire way.  Hollins had a chance but it was the Quakers that won the hard fought second, 25-23.  With all the momentum on their side, Guilford pulled away in the third and final set, 25-18, to take the match, 3-0.
