Wolfpack offense proves dominant over Lady Bucs volleyball squad

Tuesday, September 07, 2004

Raleigh, N. C. (Sept. 7, 2004) - The Lady Bucs volleyball squad traveled across western North Carolina to face the NC State Wolfpack in non-conference action today where ETSU fell 0-3 (22-30, 20-30, 27-30). Freshman outside hitter Emily Bertrand and junior middle blocker Adeola Kosoko recorded 14 and 11 kills respectively to lead NC State at Reynolds Coliseum. The win moved the Wolfpack to 4-1 on the season, while the Buccaneers fell to 0-4. NC State came out and dominated offensively in game one, finishing with a .300 team attack percentage compared to ETSU's .075. The Wolfpack would win that game by the score of 30-22. More of the same happened in game two, as NC State rallied to take the lead. But the Bucs would manage to creep back in and hang around shortly before the Wolfpack closed the door on any comeback opportunity, winning 30-20. East Tennessee State would make for a more competitive game three, but NC State still proved to be too much, as the Wolfpack sealed the sweep with a 30-27 victory. The Bucs were led by middle blocker Katie Longden (Fort Dodge, Iowa) and right side Sara Scandiffio (Purcellville, Va.), who each finished with a team-high seven kills. Setter Brittany Kessel (Libertyville, Ill.) tallied 23 assists, while also adding seven digs for the match. ETSU was never able to overcome the offensive power of the Wolfpack front court, posting just three total blocks for the evening compared to the seven recorded by NC State. ETSU will be back in action this weekend when they travel to the Nike/Comfort Suites Classic hosted by Eastern Kentucky University. The Lady Bucs will face host EKU on Friday at 7:00 p.m., and will face the University of Evansville and Lipscomb on Sept. 11 at 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. respectively.
