Xavier serves up a victory over Judson, ends losing streak
October 15, 2010

     NEW ORLEANS — Erin Vincent's seven first-set aces Friday helped Xavier University of Louisiana defeat Judson (Ala.) 25-9, 25-19, 25-14 in a women's volleyball match at The Barn.
     The Gold Nuggets (5-19) ended a school-record 16-match losing streak and snapped the three-match win streak of the Eagles (11-8).
     Vincent served four aces in Xavier's 9-0 run to open the match and had three more to give the Nuggets a 23-7 lead. The senior finished with eight aces and eight kills.
     Xavier trailed 17-16 in the second set before closing with a 9-2 to run which ended with kills from Iva Bobkova, Vincent and Sierra Lyons. Bobkova clinched the victory — the Nuggets' first since Sept. 15 — with her fourth ace and Xavier's 16th of the match.
     Bobkova and Lyons had six kills each, and Allison Dawson and Kerris Crier added five kills apiece for the Nuggets. Danielle Jones served two aces in the third set.
     Jazz Foust and Sarah Kendrick led Judson with four kills each. Bailey Glassco had seven digs, and Heather Howell served three aces.
     It was the second time this season that Xavier defeated Judson.
     Xavier will travel to Jackson, Miss., for two matches Saturday. The Nuggets will play Belhaven at 3 p.m. and Millsaps at 5 p.m. at Belhaven's Rugg Arena. Judson will remain in town and play at SUNO at 3 p.m.
