ODAC Matchup Goes to Hollins

Danville, VA - Hollins University Volleyball vs Guilford College at Averett University September 2, 2012

Box Score

After splitting the first two games of the Cougar Classic, Hollins faced a familiar opponent to open day two. ODAC rival Guilford College, selected seventh in the ODAC Preseason Poll, was standing in the way of going 2-1 to open the 2012 season.

Hollins, picked 11th by the ODAC coaches, jumped on the Quakers early and went on to a 25-21 opening set win. After a hard fought second set, Hollins found themselves in a position to sweep their rivals after another 25-21 victory. Hollins didn't waste the opportunity for the upset and finished off Guilford 25-18 in the third and final set of the match.

Lauren Hays (Saginaw, TX) not only led the Hollins offensive attack with nine kills but anchored a defensive effort by recording a match high four blocks. Ally Reed (Sterling, VA) added eight kills and 10 digs while Lela Moore (Woodleaf, NC) again led the team with 23 assists. Jessie Deese (Cary, NC) came up with 19 digs while Hays served a pair of aces.

Hollins will look to go 2-0 on the day when they face tournament host Averett University later today.
