Emory Athletics | Oct. 29, 2014
Emory University head volleyball coach Jenny McDowell earned her 600th career win Sunday afternoon as the Eagles staged a dramatic rally over Carnegie Mellon in its final match of the University Athletic Association Round Robin I. McDowell picked up the milestone in dramatic fashion with Emory coming away with a come-from-behind 3-2 verdict over the Tartans (25-27, 19-25, 25-18, 25-16, 15-4), raising its overall record to 21-2, 3-0 in the UAA.
After seeing the visitors from CMU hit .301 over the first two sets (25-6—63), Emory's defense rose to the occasion and limited the Tartans to an attack percentage of just .096 (22-14—83) over the final three games including -.211 in the decisive fifth set. Conversely, the Eagles got their league-leading offense rolling over the final three sets, hitting .329 (39-12—82) in that stretch en route to registering a final effort of .252
