RESULTS VS. ELIZABETH CITY (2006-08-25 19:56:11)

Pfeiffer Volleyball Opens Season 3-1 Monday, 28 August 2006 The Falcon Volleyball team opened the 2006 campaign at the Converse Invitational compiling a 3-1 record. In a complete reversal from the 2005 start Pfeiffer jumped out to impressive 3-0 wins over Columbia College, Elizabeth City College and Fayetteville State on Friday before losing to North Carolina Central (3-0) this past Saturday. “We played our best ball in the loss to Central,” according to Guiliano. “They are transitioning to DI, and they are big and athletic. The only part of our game that was lacking Saturday was Serve Reception and that kept us off balance in the 2nd and 3rd games, aside from that we played them (Central) pretty even.” While Serve Reception was a little off Saturday it was the Falcons strong point Friday, allowing the offense to get on track. The Falcons hit .238 for the weekend eclipsing last year's season ending mark (.163). Setter, Morgan Liebert (SO) handed out a team high 115 assists. Freshman Gaby McKinley led a balanced attack with 32 kills followed by Senior Heather Klein (24) and Sophomore Petra Ljubicic (21). There is a youth movement at Pfeiffer, at times during most games there are three freshmen and three sophomores on the court. Guiliano notes, “We expect to be very competitive. The freshmen have to get used to the speed and as a group we need to get used to playing together. Collectively we are very excited about our prospects for this season”. Pfeiffer’s home opener against Johnson C. Smith is Wednesday, August 30th at 7:00pm in Merner Gym on the Misenheimer Campus. The Falcons will travel to Catawba on Friday, September 1st, before returning home to face conference rival Belmont-Abbey Saturday, September 2nd at 1:00pm.Volleyball Box Score Elizabeth City vs pfeiffer (Aug.26,2006 at Spartanburg, SC) Elizabeth City | ATTACK |SET| SERVE |SRV|DEF| BLOCK |GEN ## Name GP| K E TA PCT| A| SA SE| RE|DIG|BS BA BE|BHE ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Totals.............. 3| 0 0 0 .000| 0| 0 0| 0| 0| 0 0 0| 0 TEAM ATTACK PER GAME TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 0.0 Game K E TA Pct 1 0 0 0 .000 GAME SCORES 1 2 3 TEAM RECORDS 2 0 0 0 .000 Elizabeth City...... 16 22 17 0-0 3 0 0 0 .000 pfeiffer............ 30 30 30 1-0 pfeiffer | ATTACK |SET| SERVE |SRV|DEF| BLOCK |GEN ## Name GP| K E TA PCT| A| SA SE| RE|DIG|BS BA BE|BHE ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Nicole Cummings..... 2| 0 0 1 .000| 0| 0 0| 0| 3| 0 0 0| 0 4 Jenna Parnell....... 1| 3 1 7 .286| 0| 0 0| 0| 3| 0 0 0| 0 5 Gaby McKinley....... 3| 9 3 15 .400| 1| 1 2| 1| 3| 1 0 0| 0 7 Charlotte McKenzie.. 2| 0 0 1 .000| 0| 0 0| 0| 5| 0 0 0| 0 9 Brittany Dickens.... 3| 3 4 11 -.091| 0| 7 2| 0| 3| 4 0 0| 0 11 Brittany Poole...... 3| 0 0 0 .000| 0| 2 2| 1| 5| 0 0 0| 1 12 Victoria Parrish.... 2| 3 2 7 .143| 0| 1 1| 0| 3| 0 0 1| 0 14 Petra Ljubicic...... 3| 11 0 18 .611| 0| 2 3| 0| 3| 0 0 0| 1 22 Morgan Liebert...... 3| 1 0 3 .333| 34| 2 2| 0| 7| 0 0 1| 4 24 Heather Klein....... 3| 6 2 9 .444| 0| 0 0| 0| 0| 5 0 0| 0 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Totals.............. 3| 36 12 72 .333| 35| 15 12| 2| 35|10 0 2| 6 TEAM ATTACK PER GAME TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 10.0 Game K E TA Pct 1 0 0 0 .000 Site: Spartanburg, SC 2 0 0 0 .000 Date: Aug.26,2006 Attend: Time: 3 0 0 0 .000 Referees:
