Donahue Digs Her Way Into Record Books As Volleyball Falls To #4 USC

Sept. 20, 2007

LOS ANGELES, Calf. - ASU Volleyball etched another named in history on Thursday night as they opened Pac-10 play in Los Angeles against the fourth-ranked USC Women of Troy. While the Sun Devils fell 3-0 in the match with USC winning 30-14, 30-21 and 30-25, senior libero, Sydney Donahue set another milestone in her career, by becoming the Pac-10 all-time leader in career digs. Donahue needed five to break the record, held by USC's Debora Seilhamer and collected 17 to bring her new career total to 2,084, which is also 13th all-time in NCAA history. The Sun Devils fall to 8-6 on the year as USC now stands at 11-0.


USC came out swinging to grab game one from ASU 30-14, led by Kimmee Roleder's six kills and three blocks. ASU started to battle back in game two with Staci Smith's five kills and three blocks, but we ultimately topped 30-21 by USC.


Game three saw ASU come back hard, tying the score ten times as well as forcing four lead changes as Sarah Reaves collected five kills and Sara Todorovich and Paige Mittelstaedt collected two blocks apiece. The effort wasn't enough though as USC swept the match, taking game three 30-25.


The Sun Devils will return to action tomorrow night as they look to take on the fifth-ranked UCLA Bruins in Los Angeles at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion at 7 p.m. PT.
