WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University volleyball team (6-9, 0-2) returns home to McDonough Arena this weekend for two BIG EAST conference matches. They take on Seton Hall (14-1, 2-0) Friday, Sept. 28 and Rutgers Sunday, Sept. 30.
The Hoyas opened BIG EAST play with two losses over the weekend to St. John's (15-3, 2-0) and Connecticut (11-6, 2-0). GU was swept by St. John's, but pushed Connecticut to four sets. The team's losing streak now stands at eight games.
Senior Lindsay Wise (Raleigh, N.C./Raleigh Charter) hit a match-high .462 with seven kills on just 13 attempts against St. John's. Junior outside hitter Brooke Bachesta (Sammamish, Wash./Eastside Catholic) had a season-high 14 kills and added seven digs at Connecticut.
Sophomore Alex Johnson (Tampa, Fla./Plant) had double-doubles in both matches, bringing her season total to nine.
The Pirates have won 11 straight after sweeping Saint Peter's (1-16) Tuesday night. Simona Sekulova led with a match-high 13 kills. They rested some of their best players in the non-conference match, after beginning BIG EAST play 2-0 with wins over Pittsburgh (10-6, 1-1) and USF (9-7, 1-1) last weekend. Several seldom-used reserves got extended playing time in the match.
Seton Hall's Amanda Hansen was named BIG EAST Freshman of the Week on Monday, Sept. 24 for her performance in the two BIG EAST matches. Teammate Shelbey Manthorpe was also named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for her weekend, including a triple-double against Pittsburgh with 34 assists, 12 kills and 16 digs.
Seton Hall's lone loss this year came in a 3-0 sweep at the hands of Ohio State at the Maryland Invitational in College Park, Md. GU beat Seton Hall 3-0 last season in South Orange, N.J.
Rutgers (14-3, 0-2) opened BIG EAST play with losses to USF and Pittsburgh. Through two matches, Ronnie Komisarek leads the BIG EAST in service aces versus conference opponents. Stephanie Zielinski ranks 18th in the NCAA with 11.55 assists per set.
Coming into the weekend, the Scarlet Knights only loss in the non-conference was a 3-0 sweep against Miami (Fla.). The Blue & Gray defeated Rutgers a season ago in a close five-set match in Piscataway, N.J., and have won the last two in the series.
Following Sunday, the Hoyas are home again Saturday, Oct. 6 to face BIG EAST rival Villanova (5-10, 0-2) at 3 p.m.
