Oct. 9, 2004

CORVALLIS, Ore. - Despite 16 kills from sophomore Abby Windell, Oregon State's volleyball team suffered a 3-1 loss against No. 21 ranked University of Arizona on Friday night in Gill Coliseum. The Beavers started off strong winning the first game 30-25 before dropping the next three 24-30, 28-30, 27-30.

The Beavers' record falls to 8-5 on the season and 2-2 in the Pac-10, while Arizona improves to 9-6 overall and 1-4 in conference action.

'Well it's disappointing, obviously,' head coach Nancy Somera said. 'We came out really strong and Arizona's a very good team. I thought it was a very good volleyball match, just wish we could have done a few things better. But for the most part, we played pretty well.'

Defensively the Beavers finished the night with 67 digs compared to Arizona's 54, but the Wildcats hit .241 for the match, while OSU mustered just a .152 hitting percentage.

Four Beaver players reached double figures in digs with Nina Baltimore's 22 leading the way.

Kim Glass finished with a match-high 22 kills to go along with 12 digs to lead the Wildcats. Jolene Killough and Meghan Cumpston added 16 and 15 kills, respectively, as Arizona won it's 16th straight match against Oregon State.

Oregon State returns to action on Saturday, when the Beavers face Arizona State University at 7 p.m. in Gill Coliseum.
