BISON BASHING, GENEVA CRUISES PAST BETHANY
Beaver Falls, PA– Geneva’s women’s volleyball team looked right at home on Tuesday as the Golden Tornadoes returned to Metheny Fieldhouse for a 3-0 victory over Bethany College. The Golden Tornadoes improved to 3-1 on their home court and moved their overall record to 12-17 with a convincing three-game sweep over the Bison.
The first game remained competitive until the Golden Tornadoes rolled off six straight points to stretch a one-point deficit into a 24-19 lead. Geneva took the first game 30-24 and then cruised in games two and three by scores of 30-14 and 30-22.
It was once again the usual suspects for Geneva that led the way offensively and defensively. Adriane Blake, who entered the contest fourth in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference with 4.0 kills per game, led the way with 15 kills. Teammate Sarah Bruck also threw down 15 kills, while Michelle Zimmovan chipped in with 11 kills. Zimmovan and Brandi Snavely led the Golden Tornadoes with four blocks each.
Snavely, who is among the leaders in the PAC in assists, had another solid night with 40 assists, to go along with her team best four blocks and four service aces.
Geneva will be right back on its home floor on Thursday night when it welcomes Westminster College to Metheny Fieldhouse for a 7 pm start. This weekend, Geneva will play three matches on Saturday against Chatham, Waynesburg and Grove City.
Geneva graduates pass the test for teacher certification in elementary education (Praxis II) at over a 99% rate in the first attempt–one of the highest pass rates in Pennsylvania.
