Wolves Volleyball End Season on a High Note
The 2011 UWG volleyball season came to a close on a high note on Saturday afternoon in New Orleans, as the Wolves blasted the Privateers 3-0 in the finale.
The Wolves wasted little time in dispatching UNO on Saturday afternoon, committing just eight errors en route to a .303 hitting percentage in the match. Freshman Lauren Kaufman led the UWG offensive with 12 kills in the match, committing just one error in 19 attempts for a .579 hitting percentage.
Leading by just two at 10-8 in the first set, the Wolves went on an 8-3 run, pushing the lead out to seven points at 18-11. New Orleans responded with a run of their own, pulling to within five at 20-15 before the Wolves finished off the set with a 5-1 run to take a 1-0 lead in the match.
The second set was simply a flurry of points for the Wolves, as UWG opened up a 10-3 lead early and never looked back, finishing off the Privateers 25-12 to take a 2-0 lead in the match. In the final set, the result was never in doubt as West Georgia opened up a 6-1 lead early and cruised to a 25-18 victory.
