Women's Volleyball Loses to Oral Roberts in Five-Game Marathon

October 29, 1998

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - With starting setter Denise Boylan out with an elbow injury, the Notre Dame women's volleyball fell by just two points to Oral Roberts 8-15, 16-14, 10-15, 15-10, 13-15 at the Joyce Center Arena in the rally-scoring fifth-game. This was the third time this season that the Irish have lost in game five by just two points.

Notre Dame (9-11 overall, 5-1 in the BIG EAST) was behind 11-14 in the fifth game, but came back to pull within 13-14. On the next play, the Golden Eagles scored on a kill by Juliana Moser to win the match following a controversial dig by teammate Debora dos Santos on a Lindsay Treadwell (Austin, Texas) spike. On that play, dos Santos appeared to hit the ball twice on the dig, however, the officials let play to continue, allowing Moser to put the ball away for her team's 18th-straight victory this season.

Several players on both sides had season-high and career-highs for the match. Treadwell recorded her 10th double-double this season (kills/digs) with a 13 kill, 17 dig performance. Treadwell's double-double increased her career total to 23 to surpass Kathy Cunningham as eighth on the Notre Dame all-time list. Irish player Emily Schiebout (Blaine, Minn.) had a career-high nine blocks and contributed 14 kills and a career-high 15 digs, while BIG EAST Co-Player of the Week Christi Girton (Muncie, Ind.) led the team with 15 kills and a career record 14 digs. Notre Dame setter Michelle Graham (Austin, Texas), starting in place of Boylan for the second game in a row, increased her previous career-high of 31 assists against Boston College on Sunday with a 49-assist performance. Freshman Kristy Kreher (Birmingham, Mich.) also say action at the setter position for only the second time in her career.

For Oral Roberts, Erica Favero had a career-high 27 kills to lead both teams. Amanda Cody also added a career-best 22 digs in the match for the Golden Eagles (20-4 overall).

The Irish will play host to Syracuse as they resume BIG EAST Conference play on Saturday, October 31 at 7 p.m. at the Joyce Center Arena.
