Eagles Sweep Virginia Tech

Junior Clare Naughton earned a match-best of 17 kills

Boston College Athletics, John Quackenbos

The Eagles took the first set 25-17, keeping their lead by a large margin almost the entire set, starting out with a score of 8-1. The Hokies had a five point run late in the set, but still only closed the margin to 8, which held until the end. BC finished the win with Amaka Chukwujekwu’s solo block, which would be the only one of the evening.

Set number two began in a similar fashion, with the Eagles taking the lead early on. Virginia Tech was able to keep the score closer this time, bringing it within two, but Clare Naughton’s kill pushed the Eagles to their second win with a score of 25-22.

The Hokies had their best start in the third set, managing to get a tie score at 6-6, but as BC picked up the pace, they were allowed very few points. VT gave up two errors that the Eagles capitalized on to take their biggest win at 25-16.

Clare Naughton snagged a match-best of 17 kills, and came just shy of a double-double with nine digs. Cat Balido reached a career best of .600, with 12 kills out of 20 attempts and no errors. Defensively, the Eagles managed at least four blocks including Chukwujekwu’s solo. Boston College is back on the road, heading down to North Carolina to take on Wake Forest on Sunday, November 17 at 1pm.
