WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University volleyball team dropped a 3-1 loss to Louisville tonight at Cardinal Arena in Louisville, Ky. Despite the loss, redshirt sophomore Annalee Abell (Lexington, Ky./Henry Clay) took advantage of the opportunity to play in her home state as she tallied 12 kills and a .526 hitting percentage to lead the Hoyas. Set scores were 25-21, 14-25, 15-25, 18-25. The Hoyas are now 13-11 overall with a 3-5 record in the BIG EAST Conference while the Cardinals improve to 13-5, 7-1 BE.
The lead set saw streaky play from both teams. Though they quickly recovered from a four-point deficit to start the match, the Hoyas found themselves consistently surrendering three points at a time before tallying three of their own.
Down 16-14, the Hoyas were able to pick up two quick points on a Cardinal serving error and a service ace from senior Kortney Robinson (Pleasant Grove, Utah/Pleasant Grove) to tie the set at 16, the first stalemate of the set. Trading points, the Hoyas tied the set at 17 on a kill from senior Vanessa Dorismond (Cary, N.C./Cardinal Gibbons) and took their first lead of the game on a kill from freshman Brooke Bachesta (Sammamish, Wash./Eastside Catholic).
Georgetown capitalized on back-to-back errors from Louisville to take a 20-18 lead, but the Cards fired right back to tie the game yet again at 20. Errant play gave GU the edge, 22-20, and Abell extended the lead to three with a kill from junior setter Ashley Malone (San Jose, Calif./St. Francis). The Hoyas relinquished one point (23-21) but back-to-back kills from Robinson and Abell gave the Hoyas the first set win, 25-21.
Streaky play continued to plague the Hoyas while Louisville cleaned up its game in the three remaining sets. As Louisville improved from hitting .184 in the first set to .357, .500 and .250, respectively in sets two, three and four, the Hoyas were unable to hit .100 in the remaining sets. With its improved play, Louisville took sets two and three and four handily.
Abell led the team with 12 kills with Dorismond and Bachesta right behind her with 11 kills apiece, hitting .107 and .143, respectively. Malone recorded 37 of the Hoyas' 40 assists while sophomore Lindsay Wise (Raleigh, N.C./Raleigh Charter) put one solo block and four assisted blocks on the board.
The Hoyas return to the court on Sunday, Oct. 24 as they travel to Fifth Third Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio to play the No. 23 Cincinnati Bearcats.
