Oct. 20, 2000
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Senior middle hitter Brooke Jackson (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) had a match-high 16 kills, but it was not enough as the Jacksonville University volleyball team lost to Campbell, 3-1, Friday night in Trans America Athletic Conference action in Swisher Gymnasium.
Junior outside hitter Carrie Arago (Orlando, Fla.) joined Jackson in the double-digit kill category with 11, but it was not enough to overcome the team's poor hitting and Campbell's service game. JU hit just .106 in the match (51 kills, 34 errors, 160 attempts) and the Fighting Camels logged 12 service aces in the match.
In game one, Campbell served up six aces and cruised easily to a 15-6 win. The Dolphins bounced back in game two, and held a 10-8 advantage late in the game. But the Camels would allow JU just one point the rest of the way en route to a 15-11 victory.
After the intermission, JU took an early lead in game three and never let the Camels get in sync. JU rolled out to a 10-6 lead before Campbell called time out to break JU's serve. But senior Jessica Windell (Newport, Ore.) scored on back-to-back aces on the ensuing plays and the Dolphins rolled to a 15-6 win.
The Dolphins took an early 2-0 lead in the fourth game, but Campbell refused to go away. The Camels scored six unanswered points to take a 6-2 lead and held the lead until the end. JU fought back to within one point at 8-7 and three points a 12-9, but that was as close as the Dolphins would get as Campbell took game four, 15-11.
Junior setter Carrie Bosworth (Centreville, Mass.) led the Dolphin defense with 11 digs while Windell had 10.
Kara Lewis led Campbell with 15 kills, and Abby Jenkins was close behind with 11. Pam Hughes led the defense with a match-high 16 digs, followed by Sarah Peterson with 12 and Crystal Brim with 11.
The Dolphins will look to get back on the winning track on Saturday when they play host to TAAC foe Georgia State at 7:30 p.m. in Swisher Gymnasium. During the pregame festivities, JU will celebrate Parent's Day as each player's parents present will be recognized.
