Gee leads volleyball at Maine Maritime





CASTINE, Maine -- Maine Maritime Academy used a balanced attack to hand Bates a 3-0 loss in volleyball Tuesday evening. The Mariners (7-1) turned in their seventh 3-0 sweep (25-18, 25-18, 25-22) of the season.

Bates (0-5), which had a four-point lead early in the final set, got a team-high 10 kills and six digs from senior captain Chrissy Gee (San Francisco, Calif.). Senior Olivia Schow (Costa Mesa, Calif.) and junior Eliza Pyne (Atherton, Calif.) had five kills apiece, while first-year Emma Getsinger (Darien, Conn.) served four aces.

Jennifer Dixon spread the wealth while she was ringing up 28 assists. She fed the bulk of Chelsea Ward's 11 kills, as well the eight kills from Kayley Rodriguez and Melissa Lail.

The Mariners were solid in their blocking game, which proved the difference in the tightly contested sets.

Junior Nicole Russell (Boca Raton, Fla.) had a team-high 13 digs, while first-year setter Tess Walther (Santa Monica, Calif.) totaled 19 assists and eight digs.
