Wood hits 1000-Assist Mark in Loss to Salisbury

SALISBURY, Md. – The Virginia Wesleyan University volleyball team dropped its contest with Salisbury University, 3-1 (25-20, 20-25, 25-19, 25-15), Wednesday evening on the road. With the loss the Marlins fall to 7-5 on the season while Salisbury improves to 10-6.

After dropping the opening set, the Marlins battled tough in set number two to even things up. A 13-5 run that included seven-straight serves by Sarah Brush helped the cause.  It wasn't enough though as the Seagulls came back to take the final two stanzas.

One of the highlights of the match was Meghan Wood as she picked up 23 assists and bypassed the 1000-career assist mark as well.

Offensively, Amber Matalus led the way as she hit .440 with 12 kills and only a single hitting error.

Apart from her solid serving effort, Brush excelled in the backrow, picking up a career-high 27 digs on the evening.

Volleyball will be back in action at 1 p.m. on Saturday as the team travels to Emory & Henry for a bit of ODAC action.
