The Gophers hit .295 as a team in defeating Lancaster Bible, 3-1 (22-25, 25-15, 25-15, 25-15), before posting an attack percentage of .270 while polishing off Washington Bible, 3-0 (25-9, 25-15, 25-6).

Prior to this evening, the Gophers surpassed .200 in hitting only against McDaniel on Sept. 9.

Claire Sauvage-Mar (New Delhi, India/American Embassy School) supplied the Gophers with 33 assists and Katharine Genton (Arlington, Va./Cushing Academy) was credited with a career-high 22 digs.

Rachel Hirsen (Los Angeles, Calif./Buckley School) had eight kills and no errors in nine attempts (.889 attack percentage) for Goucher (5-8) in the Washington Bible match.
