Loyola volleyball team shuts out SUNO

September 2, 2011

The Loyola University New Orleans volleyball team opened the 2011 season last Saturday with a 3-0 shutout win over the Southern University at New Orleans Lady Knights. It was the season opener for both teams.

“It was very exciting to get out there and play against another team,” said Coach Tommy Harold. “We had moments when we were very pleased with the match, but there is still a lot of improving to do over the course of the season.”

Junior outside hitter Kailey Tuthill led the way with a match-high seven kills, while junior outside hitter Gina Gill finished with six. Senior middle blocker Lindsay Mullinix and freshman Lauren Brand both contributed with three each.

The Wolfpack excelled in serving for the evening, tailing 11 aces.

Junior setter Samantha Worsham had five aces and senior Amanda Oldani finished with four. Both Gill and Mullinix contributed with one each.

Loyola looks to improve for its upcoming match against the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas on Sept. 2. The ‘Pack takes on UWP at 1 p.m. and then Trinity at 3.30 p.m.
