Volleyball Goes For Second Straight Win At Robert Morris

Sept. 26, 2005

BALTIMORE, Md. - After a thrilling five-game victory over LaSalle University last Tuesday, the Greyhound volleyball team will return to action on Tuesday night against Robert Morris University in the Sewall Center beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Now 3-11 on the season, the Greyhounds snapped a 12-match road losing streak last week with the five-game victory over the Explorers. Senior outside hitter Becky Corb recorded a match-high 27 kills with 16 digs while sophomore Christina Greenup matched a season-high with 16 kills in the win.

The Greyhounds recorded a season-high 76 kills to earn the victory in their second straight five-game match.

Corb leads the Greyhounds with 188 kills this season, ranking second in the MAAC in kills per game (3.84). She stands 59 kills away from tying the Loyola career kills record, which is held by Sarah Becker, `94. She also ranks ninth in the conference in service aces per game (0.41).

Senior libero Jamie Arndt , who recorded a season-high 29 digs in the win over LaSalle, ranks third in the conference in digs per game with 4.58. She has 911 career digs and is on pace to reach 1,000 for her career this season.

The Colonials are 6-8 this season after winning two of three matches this weekend at the St. Francis (Pa.) Red Flash Invitational. Robert Morris defeated Coppin State and host St. Francis while falling to Niagara.

Janette Schneider leads the Colonials in kills with 130 while Megan Bell has added 116 in 14 matches this season. Tawnya Storino is the team leader in assists, averaging 10.66 per game.

Last season, the Colonials handed Loyola a three-game loss at Reitz Arena by scores of 30-24, 30-18 and 30-25. Corb led the Greyhounds with 10 kills while Arndt had eight kills with a match-high 11 digs. Bell had 14 kills in the win for Robert Morris, while Rachel Leitch led all players with 16 kills and just one attack error.

The Greyhounds end the six-match road trip with the match against Robert Morris before returning home against Morgan State on Thursday night to start a brief two-match homestand, which will include an October 4 match against local rival Towson.
