BOCA RATON, Fla. - Junior outside hitter Carrie Arago (Orlando, Fla.) and senior middle hitter Tiffany Twaddle (Dallas, Texas) each recorded double-doubles as the Jacksonville University volleyball team defeated Florida Atlantic, 3-0, Friday night at FAU Gymnasium.

The Dolphins attacked the ball well all night, tallying a .310 hitting percentage with 46 kills and only 11 errors in 113 attempts. Twaddle, who did not commit a single attacking error in 17 attempts, finished the night with an impressive .647 hitting percentage.
