Volleyball

Four different Miami players set career marks but the University of Miami women’s volleyball team took the loss as Maryland defeated the Hurricanes in ACC action Saturday evening at the Comcast Center Pavilion. The Hurricanes fall to 7-6 on the season and an even 3-3 in the ACC.

Junior outside hitter Karla Johnson set a new career-high with a match-high 23 kill performance. Senior Ashley Youngs and sophomore Ann Gallo also set career marks. Youngs set a new career-high in kills with 13, while Gallo turned in a 19 dig performance for a new career record. Redshirt sophomore Francheska Savage also set a career mark with seven block assists to go along with her 13 kills and one solo block in the match.

Sophomore setter Jill Robinson’s 67 assists matched a career mark set last night against Virginia. Robinson also tallied her sixth double-double of the season with 14 digs. Senior rightside hitter Valeria Tipiana turned in a double-double with 21 kills and 20 digs while adding three service aces. Senior Jamie Grass registered a team-high 24 digs.

The Hurricanes led in every statistical category including kills with 80, hitting percentage at .223, assists with 74, and blocks with 13. Maryland, however, held Miami to three games with a hitting percentage under .200.

Both teams exchanged leads in game one before a Johnson kill stretched out a 19-14 lead. The Terps battled to within three points to bring the score to 20-18 but the Hurricanes would not surrender the lead and took the 30-23 win.

The Terrapins pulled off a 30-28 win in game two despite being out-hit by the Hurricanes, .220-.159.
