The College of William and Mary downed Virginia Commonwealth University 3-2 in the Tribe’s CAA opener. Sophomore outside hitter Erin Skipper led the squad with 13 kills as the Tribe jumped out to a quick two-game advantage. After VCU rallied to take the next two games and even the match, the College recovered to hit .200 in the final game and seal the win. Senior setter Kim Mount notched a game-high 43 assists, while adding 21 digs — second to junior defensive specialist Lindsey Pflugner’s 27. The win is the Tribe’s eighth in a row and boosts its season mark to 11-3.
