Volleyball Sweeps Bethune-Cookman 3-0
Oct. 7, 2003
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Freshman outside hitter Eva Stoilova (Sofia, Bulgaria) lead the JU attack with 10 kills and six digs, and sophomore middle hitter Lindsay Ward (Fernandina Beach, Fla.), finished with eight kills and five digs as the visiting Dolphins swept Bethune-Cookman 3-0 (30-20, 30-23, 30-24) to claim their sixth-straight victory, Tuesday night at the ICI Center. The win improves the Dolphins to 7-10 while the Wildcats drop to 4-14.
Senior outside hitter Radka Dimitrova (Sofia, Bulgaria) chipped in with seven kills and seven digs, while sophomore middle blocker Danielle Neville (Greenwood Village, Colo.) recorded seven kills in seven attempts for a perfect 1.000 hitting percentage. Neville has been on fire, hitting .350 or better in six of the last eight matches and she has averaged 8.2 kills per game with a .506 hitting percentage during her hot streak.
Jacksonville's balanced offense was guided by sophomore setter Erin Donivan (Sarasota, Fla.), who recorded a team-best 16 assists in two games, and freshman setter Erin Hickman (San Antonio, Texas), who followed close behind with 14 assists. Donivan and Hickman distributed the ball evenly to JU's accurate hitters, winning the first game 30-20 and putting the Wildcats on their heels, never allowing them to regain their composure.
After four-straight road games, JU returns home to host conference foe Belmont on Friday, Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Swisher Gymnasium.
