Musketeers Host RedHawks In Tuesday Night Volleyball Clash
Sep 9, 2013
CINCINNATI - Xavier volleyball hosts Miami (Ohio) in a 7 p.m. tilt on Tuesday evening at Cintas Center. The Musketeers are coming off a second-place showing in the Duquesne/Robert Morris Invitational and sport a 4-2 record, while the RedHawks sport a perfect 5-0 record.
Xavier has been led by senior Alex Smith, who leads the BIG EAST in hitting percentage (.500) and ranks in the top 10 in kills (3.14 k/s). The Musketeers have been a balanced team in the early going, receiving significant contributions on the court from senior Sarah Brown, juniors Aubree Smith and Alex Blair, sophomores Makayla Agin and Lauren Metzger and freshmen Abbey Bessler and Emily McIlquham.
Miami enters the match following a come-from-behind five-set win against Northern Kentucky, a team Xavier defeated 3-1 earlier this season. The RedHawks are paced by Jenny Ingle, who averages 3.28 k/s.
In a five-set thriller, Xavier took last season's meeting between the two schools in Oxford, Ohio. Stephanie Vorherr broke Xavier's all-time digs record in the meeting, and Amé White registered a double-double with career highs in both kills (19) and digs (19).
