Volleyball Suffers First Ivy Defeat of 2001

Oct. 19, 2001

The Bears entered the match undefeated in Ivy League play, and now stand at 9-8 and 4-1 in the league.

The Bears jumped out to take the first game, 30-28, recording a .341 team hitting percentage. In the next game, Princeton barely nipped the Bears by a score of 32-30, tying the match at 1-1. The final two games were close, but eventually saw the Tigers prevail.

Despite double-doubles from two Brown players, the Bears were unable to muster the win. Sophomore Diane Schneider recorded 16 kills and 16 digs, while freshman Elvina Kung tallied 14 kills and 14 assists. Angela Dunn totaled 23 kills, and Laura Wells posted 16 digs.

The Bears will look to avenge the Princeton loss on Saturday October 20, when the team matches up with Ivy opponent, Penn at 4:00p.m.
