LIVE STATS: vs. #15 BYU l vs. New Hampshire

Another strong offensive night from Lydia Rudnick and a 17-dig performance from freshman Sarah Daschbach led the Princeton women's volleyball team to a 3-0 sweep of George Washington in the opening match of the George Washington Invitational.

Though the match was a sweep, the Tigers fought hard to win all three sets. After a 25-20 opener, Princeton clawed out wins of 26-24 and 25-23 to take the match.

The Tigers faced a game ball in the second set, but a service error evened the score at 24-24. Freshman Kendall Peterkin, who finished the match with eight kills and eight digs, scored to give Princeton a 25-24 edge, and she followed with a block to give Princeton a 2-0 lead.

The Tigers faced a 21-21 tie in the third, but scored three of four to earn a match ball. A final Peterkin kill gave Princeton its third victory of the season.

Sophomore Ginny Willis recorded 25 assists, and she finished second to Daschbach with 11 digs. Junior Leah Jordan had five kills, three blocks and no hitting errors, while classmate Chelsea Parker added five kills.

Princeton will play twice on Saturday, starting with a noon showdown against No. 15 BYU, which moved to 10-0 Friday with a sweep of New Hampshire. The Tigers will conclude the weekend with a 5 pm match against New Hampshire. Both matches will be video streamed live (subscription required) on the George Washington site, which you can find here.
