Game Box Score

AMHERST -- The Tufts Volleyball team will head into the 2007 NESCAC Tournament as perhaps the hottest team in the conference after winning their final six league games and 10 out of their final 11 regular-season games overall. The Jumbos capped these streaks with a 3-1 win over Colby College in their final game of the regular season at Amherst on Saturday afternoon.

Tufts (18-12, 7-3 NESCAC) will now await word on the NESCAC Tournament seedings. The tournament will be played next weekend (Nov. 3-5) at the site of the highest seed. Colby finished its regular season at 12-22 overall and 2-8 in NESCAC. Tufts took the match against the Mules by winning the third and fourth games after losing the second.

The Jumbos again received solid contributions around the floor in the win over Colby. Senior captain Katie Wysham (Spokane, WA) had nine kills and eight blocks (six assists), while junior Stacy Filocco (Olney, MD) was also a two-way factor with 22 digs, 15 kills and two service aces. The offense was paced by sophomore setter Dena Feiger (Long Grove, IL) with 22 assists, and junior Kate Denniston (Tarzana, CA) connected for eight kills. First-year Caitlin Updike (Manhattan Beach, CA) was also active on offense and defense with 12 kills and 22 digs, while junior Natalie Goldstein (Piedmont, CA) had 22 digs as well.

For Colby, Meredith Lawler played well with 15 kills and 19 digs, and setter Jenny Lawrence also had an impressive combination with 26 assists and 20 digs. The Mules were active defensively against a good Tufts attack, with Cassie Sancartier finishing with 27 digs (along with six kills), Jessie Prentice adding 18 digs and Carlie Minichino recording 17. Heather Arvidson had nine kills, two service aces and five digs.
