Beaver Falls, PA - It was more than a successful home opener for the Geneva women′s volleyball team on Wednesday night. The Golden Tornadoes cruised to a 3-0 victory over Grove City in the first match of the season against a PAC opponent. In addition, junior outside hitter Adriane Blake become just the fourth Geneva player to reach 1000 kills her career. Blake came into the night needing 16 kills and she finished the night on that exact number to lead the Golden Tornadoes offense.

Geneva, which opened the season going 3-1 at the Gettysburg College tournament last weekend cruised past Grove City in three straight games by scores of 25-18, 25-21, 25-14. Moving to 4-1 on the young season, Geneva got contributions from all of its usual suspects. In addition to Blake′s work at the net, Rachel Kuegler added ten kills and Laura Zerbe picked up nine kills to go along with her nine digs. Senior setter Brandi Snavely continued her flawless play with 38 assists and three service aces.

The Golden Tornadoes will enjoy a week away from the court before heading to Thiel College next Wednesday night. Geneva returns home on September 19th to host Thiel and Thomas More.
