No. 22 Colorado Downs No. 21 Notre Dame To Win PowerBar Invitational

BOULDER, Colo. - Tournament MVP Sarah Lodge had 14 kills to lead #22-ranked Colorado past #21, Notre Dame in straight games 15-7, 15-9, 15-12 in final-match action Saturday at the PowerBar Invitational.

CU received a balanced hitting attack that saw four players total between 7-9 kills. All-tournament selection Tegan Lynch chipped in with 9 kills while Melissa Schutz had 8 kills and Alison Koepke and Courtney Owens had seven kills each. CU sophomore setter Kelly Campbell was also named to the all-tournament team.

Senior hitter Jaimie Lee led Notre Dame with 17 kills on .214 hitting but junior middle Linsay Treadwell was the only other Irish player to post more than 4 kills, with 8. Each of Notre Dame's losses during the '97 season have come against ranked teams, including three defeats in a span of eight days to #6 Washington State, #2 Florida and #22 CU.

The win halts a three-match winning streak for Notre Dame over CU, with the Irish now leading the series 3-2.

Neither team enjoyed a stellar hitting night, with CU owning a .185 -.075 advantage. The Buffs also totaled a 4-0 service ace advantage while both teams had 11 blocks.

Notre Dame battled back in game three to take a 12-10 lead, but the Buffs scored the final five points of the match to post the victory. The third game featured just .026 hitting from the Irish and .071 from the Buffs.

CU opened a 1-0 lead behind balanced hitting that saw six players total between 2-5 kills in game one. The Buffs hit just .167 in the opening game but held the Irish to .087 team hitting. The hosts cranked thing sup in game two, posting a .353 - .111 hitting advantage. The Irish did not serve an ace during the first two games while making five service errors.

Lee and fellow senior hitter Angie Harris were Notre Dame's representatives on the all-tournament team.
