BOX SCORE

The Princeton women's volleyball team fell to 3-7 Tuesday night, and yet it goes into Saturday's Ivy League opener knowing it is just a few points from a far better record. The Tigers lost their fourth five-set match of the season, this time to Lehigh in the 2012 home opener.

Playing without injured starters Ginny Willis, Nicole Kincade and Kendall Peterkin, Princeton dropped a 15-25, 25-23, 25-21, 20-25, 16-14 match to the Lehigh Mountain Hawks. The Tigers cruised through the first set, but Lehigh tightened its play from there and kept Princeton's offense from taking over the rest of the way.

Lehigh took the second and third sets, but Princeton rallied from an early hole in the fourth to force the decisive fifth. The Tigers were unable to grab a lead and actually faced two match balls at 14-12, but a kill by Lydia Rudnick (18 kills, .341 attack percentage) and a hitting error got the Tigers back even. Lehigh responded, though, and took the next two points to win the match.

Rudnick's 18 kills were a match high, while junior Chelsea Parker chipped in with 15 kills of her own. Classmate Leah Jordan had five kills, all without an error, and a match-best nine blocks. Freshman Sarah Daschbach, in her Dillon Gym debut, led Princeton with 13 digs.

Princeton will return to the court Saturday at 5 pm when it takes on Penn in the Ivy League opener at The Palestra.
