Sept. 17, 2004

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Allison Lawrence had match-highs of 16 kills and 16 digs to lead the Oregon State volleyball team to a 3-0 sweep of Pennsylvania at the San Diego Invitational on Friday night. The Beavers (4-3) beat the Quakers 30-12, 30-27, 30-21.

Lawrence hit .278 and was the only player from either team to finish with double figures in the kills column. She's had 10 or more in all seven matches for OSU this season and is 18 away from picking up the 1000th kill of her career.

Amanda Eggert added nine kills for the Beavers, who hit .236. Laura Black hit .462 with a team-best seven kills for the Quakers (2-2), but no other Penn players had more than five kills as the Quakers hit just .066.

Lawrence and Karah Rhoades combined for 30 of OSU's 55 digs, with Rhoades picking up a season-best 14. Penn had 48 digs, led by Meredith Damore's 11.

The Beavers served a season-high eight aces. Desma Stovall, Abby Windell, Lawrence and Rhoades each served two apiece. Windell had a hand in four of OSU's five totals blocks as well.

Oregon State continues competition at the USD Invitational on Saturday, when the Beavers will play Nevada and host San Diego.
