STORRS, Conn. – The University of Connecticut volleyball team snapped a five-match losing streak with a clean 3-0 sweep of intrastate rival Hartford at Gampel Pavilion, Tuesday evening.  The win pushed the Huskies record back to an even 9-9, while the Hawks fell to 9-10.  Junior libero Kelsey Maving (Tonawanda, N.Y.) became the 10th player in UConn history to record her 1,000th career dig.

Maving led all players with 20 digs in the match and reached the milestone mark with her first dig of the third set, 16th of the game, leading to a kill for junior outside hitter Mattison Quayle (Los Angeles, Calif.).  She ended the game with 1,004 digs in her career, placing her ninth all-time.

For the Huskies, it was their first three-set victory since beating Chattanooga in the opening match of the Hokie Classic on September 16.  UConn took the three sets by scores of 25-18, 25-17, and 25-17.

In the first set, freshman defensive specialist Sage Esposito (Milford, Conn.) rattled off three-straight service aces, of her four for the match, to turn a 10-10 game into a 13-10 Connecticut advantage.

Quayle led all players with 13 kills and also posted 10 digs, en route to her fourth double-double and second straight.  Junior outside hitter Kami Nethersole led Hartford with 12 kills to go along with six digs.
