OSHKOSH, Wis. -- The top-ranked Juniata College women\'s volleyball team took a split in a pair of tough day one matches at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Invitational, Friday night in Oshkosh, Wis. The Eagles posted a 3-1 win over no. 3 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to open the tournament, with game scores of 28-30, 32-30, 34-32, and 30-25. In the second match of Juniata\'s twinbill, the Eagles dropped a 3-2 decision to 19th-ranked University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, 3-2. Game scores against UW-La Crosse were 26-30, 30-27, 30-20, 22-30, and 15-11. \"La Crosse played us really well, and we didn\'t respond to some good stuff,\" said Juniata head coach Larry Bock. \"I probably made too many subs, trying to give some of the starters some rest, but we still had a chance to win. I put the regulars back in during game three, but La Crosse had some momentum by then.\" Junior middle hitter Erin Albert (Philipsburg, Pa./Philipsburg-Osceola) led the Eagles offensively with 23 kills, to go with four blocks. Sophomore Megan Sollenberger (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cumberland Valley) had 30 digs. Juniata was without the services of junior setter Erin Kozak (Huntingdon, Pa./Huntingdon), who was injured during a match against Catholic University on October 6, and did not travel to Wisconsin. -30-
