Greyhounds Outlast La Salle in Five; Schillinger Named All-Tournament
Sept. 1, 2007
PHILADELPHIA - Loyola College finished the weekend with a 2-2 record, capping play at the La Salle College Invitational with a five-game victory over the host Explorers, 27-30, 30-21, 30-27, 25-30, 15-7, on Saturday afternoon.
Junior Rachel Schillinger earned All-Tournament honors after hitting .393 in the final match, logging 12 kills and only one error in 28 attempts.
As a team, the Greyhounds (4-4) hit .205 in the match, rebounding after hitting just .091 in the first game against the Explorers (4-4).
Sophomore Karlee Woodward hit .379 with 14 kills, while freshman Nina Camaioni led all players with 17 kills. Sophomore Anastasia Collins added 13 kills, while her classmates, Chrissey Cruz and Joanne Schurtz, each had eight.
Woodward had a team-high five blocks, three solo, and Cruz recorded a match-high 53 assists. Freshman Brittany Born led all players with a career-high 27 digs.
Loyola went up 11-3 in the deciding fifth game as La Salle made four hitting errors in the first 14 points.
The Greyhounds beat Saint Peter's in four games earlier in the day after hitting poorly in yesterday's invitational matches, losses to UMBC and Lafayette.
"We came back today and hit very well," Head Coach Kristina Hernandez said. "We were over .200 in both matches, which was great after hitting at a really low percentage yesterday."
Camaioni led the Greyhounds with 56 kills in the four matches, averaging 3.5 per game. Woodward had 42 kills and 13 total blocks, while Schillinger notched 40 kills and 12 total blocks.
Schillinger hit at a team-best .320 clip during the four matches.
Cruz added 21 kills, while leading the team with 166 set assists. Born had a team-high 84 digs.
The Greyhounds open their home schedule on Tuesday, September 4, 2007, with a 7 p.m. match against Towson University.
