SU roundup: Hornets blank Hollins

Daily Staff Reports - sports@nvdaily.com

The Shenandoah University women's soccer team completed its inaugural Old Dominion Athletic Conference regular season Tuesday afternoon with a 7-0 victory at Hollins in Roanoke.

The victory means that SU (8-10-1, 6-5-1 ODAC) officially finishes seventh in its first season of ODAC play.

Coach Liz Pike's club will be the No. 7 seed at the upcoming ODAC tournament and will play at the second-seed (most likely Washington and Lee) on Saturday in a quarterfinal round game.

Pairings and times will be officially announced following the completion of regular season play on Wednesday evening.

Shenandoah wasted little time on Tuesday against Hollins (4-13, 2-10), scoring a goal just 1:58 into the game and taking a 4-0 lead by the time the game was a half-hour old.

Senior Stormie Malik had that opening goal, finishing off a Danielle Burris assist, before notching a second goal in the 27th minute.

Harmon Hall, playing in front of her hometown fans, made it 3-0 just 2:05 after Malik's second goal by converting Hannah Oakes' second straight assist.

Burris closed the book on the first half scoring with her tally at 30:14.

SU scored in the 49th, 56th and 63rd minutes, the last by Kelli Kitchens, a Hollins transfer, to provide the final margin of victory.

The Hornets outshot Hollins 38-8 and had all 10 of the game's corners.

Nichole Pratt had four saves to post her fourth shutout of the year.


Mount Aloysius 3, Shenandoah 0

Shenandoah opened its final week of the volleyball regular season with a 3-0 loss at Mount Aloysius on Tuesday evening in Cresson, Pa.

The Hornets (11-14) were close in all three sets, losing at 23, 23 and 19 to the Mounties (9-15).

Senior Megan Gillispie paced SU with six kills with classmate Mary Harshman and junior Haley Smith both adding five.

Freshman Blake Parkes chipped in 11 assists, with Nicole Mueller adding 14 digs.

Shenandoah completes its home slate Thursday night at 7 p.m., in a non-league matchup against Frostburg State. Gillispie and Harshman, along with classmates Kelcy Brown, Emily Jones and Chantelle Phung, will be honored prior to the contest.
