Gorlok Volleyball lost to Washington University 3-1 despite Lauren Borik’s fifth straight match with double-digit kills. The team’s record now sits at 7-8 for the season and 0-3 at home.

Webster lost three straight sets after winning the first. They won the first set by a score of 25-10, the widest margin of victory this season. In sets two through four the Gorloks were outscored by 29 points and out-killed 46-28.

With this defeat, Webster has lost to Washington University in 18 straight matches. The Gorloks have never beaten the Bears. They will not face each other again this season.

With tonight’s 22 digs Kristen Farrah moved into second place on the school’s all-time list with 1,691 career digs. She now sits 309 digs away from being the school’s all-time leader. If she can maintain her current 7.57 digs per set for the rest of the season, she will only need 41 sets to capture the top spot. 

With 13 matches remaining in the regular season and then the postseason, Farrah is on pace to break Webster’s career digs record in her junior season.

Webster’s next contest is Thursday, October 3 at Westminster College. Their next home game is October 11 against Spalding University.
