Balanced Effort Leads Guilford Past Greensboro, 3-0

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Laura Kopald's eight kills helped Guilford College post a 3-0 win over crosstown-rival Greensboro College Tuesday night.

The Quakers (5-12) recorded the first point in both the first and second set and never let the Pride (7-14) take the lead. The third set saw five tie scores and five lead changes, but the Quakers pulled away down the stretch to win in three, 25-18, 25-20, 25-16. 

Malikah French and Emma Gunn had seven kills apiece on .417 and .353 hitting, respectively. Sophomore setter Taylor Whitley had 27 assists and senior libero Taylor Phillips added 17 digs.  Senior Mary Moody added six kills and 12 digs in the Quakers' third win in four matches.

Greensboro was led by a trio of sophomores. Danielle Simpson led the way with 10 kills and 10 digs. Dana Sandknop had 21 assists and Siarra Cates added 11 pickups for the Pride.

Guilford will be back in action Wednesday (10/5) at 7:00 p.m. in an Old Dominion Conference match with Randolph College.
