  • GAINESVILLE, FL - The Rutgers volleyball team (0-3) twice battled back to tie American University, before falling 3-2 (32-34, 30-25, 26-30, 30-27 and 11-15) in its final match of the Gator Invitational.

    Junior Dawn Christjaener (Huntington Beach, CA) led the Scarlet Knights in kills for the third consecutive game with 25. Christjaener added 11 digs to record her first double-double of the season. Her 25 kills and 50 total attempts were both career highs, and for her effort she was named to the all-tournament team. Three other Knights also achieved double-doubles. Senior Shalya Bush (Spokane, WA) had 14 kills and led the Knights with 16 digs, junior Stephanie Travioli (Arlington, TX) contributed 11 kills and 10 digs, and junior Abbey Martin (Topeka, KA) led the team once again with 59 assists and added 10 digs.
