Loyola sweeps Xavier in regular-season finale
November 8, 2010

     NEW ORLEANS — Gina Gill had 13 kills and seven digs Monday to lead Loyola to a 25-10, 25-19, 25-22 women's volleyball victory against city rival Xavier University of Louisiana at The Barn.
     It was the final match of the regular season for the Wolfpack (25-13) and the Gold Nuggets (8-24).
     Kailey Tuthill had 10 kills and 10 digs for Loyola, which completed a three-match season sweep of Xavier and leads the series 8-0. Amanda Oldani had 10 digs for the Wolfpack.
     Sierra Lyons led Xavier with seven kills. It was Senior Night for the Nuggets, who honored outside hitters Danielle Jones and Erin Vincent between the second and third sets.
     Loyola had runs of the 9-0 in the first set and 7-0 in the second set, then got three kills from Tuthill to close the match after Xavier took an 18-17 third-set lead.
     The Wolfpack served seven third-set aces to finish with an 8-1 advantage.
     Both teams will play in conference tournaments Friday. Xavier will stay in town and play in the morning in the double-elimination Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Tournament at Dillard's Dent Hall — the time and opponent have yet to be announced — and Loyola will play Southern Wesleyan at 3:30 p.m. in the quarterfinals of the Southern States Athletic Conference Tournament at Gulfport, Miss.
