BRIEFS: UCD outlasts UOP in Big West opener

By
September 24, 2010 |

STOCKTON Ñ Junior middle blocker Katie DennyÕs tip fell into the open Tiger court to complete UC DavisÕ wild five-set victory over Pacific in Big West Conference womenÕs volleyball action at the Alex Spanos Center on Thursday.

Sophomore Allison Whitson scored 18 kills against just four errors as the Aggies won 25-22, 25-16, 20-25, 13-25 and 16-14.

Denny had 10 kills with one error for UCD (9-4, 1-0), while freshman Morgan Borch and senior Melanie Adams tallied 13 and 11 kills, respectively.

Senior libero Kayla Varney picked up 22 digs, with freshman setter Jenny Woolway right behind with a career-high 19. Additionally, the Aggies totaled 11 blocks in net defense, with senior Betsy Sedlak leading the way with eight stuffs.

For the Tigers (7-5, 0-1), senior Svenja Engelhardt knocked down 17 kills.

Whitson hit five kills on 10 attempts in the AggiesÕ first-set win. UCD took the lead immediately on back-to-back block assists by Sedlak and Borch, then capitalized on three Tiger errors to massage the edge to 10-4. Pacific managed to close the gap to 23-22, but the Aggies finished off the opener with two straight points.

In the second set, Adams hit two kills and served up an ace amidst a 10-2 run that helped UCD pull from a close 11-10 advantage to a decisive 21-12 lead. Pacific delivered the Aggies their final two points on a hitting error and serving error.

The Tigers, however, came out firing after the break, winning the third and fourth games, then jumping out to a 8-2 lead in the fifth.

But UCD finally regrouped, scoring eight of the next nine points. Sedlak contributed on three blocks, Adams equalized on a shot from the right pin, and Whitson gave the Aggies a 11-10 lead on a cross-court shot from the left side.

The teams traded three more ties before DennyÕs kill through the Pacific back row provided UCD with a 14-13 match point. Two points later, DennyÕs tip gave the Aggies the match win.

The Aggies continue south for more Big West action at UC Riverside on Saturday.
