JU Defeats Appalachian State In Four
October 23, 1999
Jacksonville, Fla. - Jacksonville University recorded another win on Saturday night, defeating the Appalachian State Mountaineers 4-1 (15-3, 15-8, 5-15, 15-8). These results bring ASU to an overall season record of 4-15, and Jacksonville improves to 11-9.
Sophomore setter Carrie Bosworth put forth a good effort for the Dolphins, recording her fourth triple double for the year as she tallied 11 kills, 27 assists and 12 digs. Among other Dolphin contributors, Carrie Arago had 12 kills and 10 digs, while senior Lindsay Schriever had six kills and a team-leading hitting percentage of .625, Brooke Ahrens followed closely with a .563 percentage.
The Mountaineers' Ann Leedy led her team defensively with 11 digs, and the team exploded in game three to mount a comeback. Despite the win in game three, Appalachian State could not defeat JU's balanced attack and defense. Service errors plagued the Dolphins throughout the match, but Appalachian State's total of 17 hitting errors prevented them from capitalizing on JU's problems with the serve.
Jacksonville takes this momentum into a big week as they host top conference opponent UCF on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m., a battle of the TAAC's two leading teams.
