SATURDAY NIGHT SPLIT
New Wilmington, PA – All of the steam may have been taken out of Geneva’s women’s volleyball team went four grueling games to beat Grove City in the first of two matches at Westminster on Saturday night. The Golden Tornadoes were unable to keep their momentum with a loss to the Titans in the night cap.
Geneva opened the night with a 3-1 victory over Grove City, including a marathon 34-32 victory in game two to even the match. The Golden Tornadoes had a much easier time in games three and four to win for the fourth consecutive time. In the night cap, Geneva didn’t have much left and lost a 3-0 decision to host Westminster. With the two match split, Geneva moved its overall record to 8-15 for the season, including victories in seven of its last nine matches.

Teammate Sarah Bruck added 18 kills, while Elizabeth Fisher posted 13 and Michelle Zimmovan added ten. Brandi Snavely led the way with an incredible 56 assists, while Faith Guerra had a team best 29 digs.
In match number two, Geneva could not generate the same kind offense and only Blake finished with double digit kills with a team best 12 in the loss. Zimmovan did have eight kills and a team high three blocks.
