Vorherr Eclipses 2,000-Career Digs And Leads Xavier By Duquesne
Senior libero Stephanie Vorherr registered her 2,000th dig and lead Xavier past Duquesne (25-13, 26-24, 29-27) in straight sets on Friday night at Cintas Center. Xavier improves to 16-9 and 8-2 in the Atlantic 10, while Duquesne falls to 19-9 and 6-4 in conference action.

Senior Alex Smith and freshman Abbey Bessler led Xavier to wins against Clemson and NKU in the Xavier Invitational last weekend on their way to earning spots on the all-tournament team. Smith's 31 kills and .472 hitting percentage also earned her an honorable mention nod on the BIG EAST's weekly awards.

Following last year's three-set win over Duquesne, the Musketeers improved to 32-4 all-time against the Dukes. Xavier is undefeated in four previous meetings with Robert Morris and holds a 1-1 mark against Central Michigan.

The matches against both Robert Morris and Duquesne will be live streamed on each school's athletic websites.
