WildCats Prove Inhospitable Hosts

Lynchburg, VA - Hollins University Volleyball at Randolph College, October 18, 2013

Box score

A trip to Randolph College was the final stop on a two game road trip that featured a non-conference loss to Bluefield College on Tuesday night.  Hollins came into the matchup with the WildCats tied in the ODAC standings.

The home team got off to a quick start and took the first set, 25-16.  Hollins needed to gain the momentum in the opening stages of the second frame in order to avoid digging themselves a hole that would be difficult to get out of.  However, Randolph wouldn't let a game Hollins squad gain an advantage and as the final point was played, it was the WildCats that enjoyed a 2-0 lead by taking the set, 25-17.  Hollins and Randolph played a tight third set but it was again the WlidCats that pulled away late to take the set, 25-22, and the match, 3-0.
