WASHINGTON - The Hoyas' Lauren Saar had 15 kills, giving her 197 on the season, but the Georgetown University women's volleyball team (6-10, 0-3) could not find their rhythm against the DePaul University Blue Demons (14-2, 1-2) who swept the match, 25-21; 29-27; 25-13 on Saturday evening at McDonough Arena.
The Hoyas dropped the first set, 25-21. Georgetown got off to a quick 4-1 start, but then DePaul tied it up, 4-4, and overtook GU for the remainder of the set. Georgetown got back within three towards the end of the first set to make it 23-20. Georgetown sophomore Sarr had seven kills in the first set, while GU freshman Caitlin Brauneis notched 11 assists.
Georgetown got off to a quick 3-0 start in the second set. DePaul tied up the match at 11 all. Georgetown fought off a Blue Demon set point at 24-23 and got a chance to win the set at 27-26. Hoya senior Annalee Abell had five kills to lead the Hoyas in the second set. But a kill by DePaul senior Vesla Zapryanova gave DePaul the set-point it needed to go up by two matches.
The Blue Demons started the third set with an ace serve by sophomore Colleen Smith. DePaul climbed out to a quick 9-1 lead. An ace serve by Zapryanova gave them a ten-point lead, 11-1. Georgetown's Sarr made her 12th kill of the night to make it 12-2. But the Blue Demons maintained and stretched their lead, 18-6. The Hoyas then got a kill by junior Dani White, her fifth of the match, after a GU timeout to make it 21-9. The Blue Demons closed out the third set, 25-13, and the match, 3-0, to give them their first BIG EAST victory of the season.
DePaul had seven ace serves on the evening; three by sophomore Colleen Smith and two from Zapryanova as well as junior Allyson Rooks.
Abell, a senior for GU, hit a team-best .350 and her nine kills brought her season total up to 76.
Brauneis had 31 assists on the night, now 611 on the season, and led the team in digs against DePaul with nine. Hoya junior MacKenzie Simpson and Sarr had eight and seven digs, respectively, on the evening.
