Warmington Breaks Kills Record, Blue Jays Snag Two Wins
Oct. 20, 2012
Baltimore, MD - Jasmine Warmington notched her 315th kill of the season to break the Johns Hopkins single-season freshman record for kills Saturday as the Blue Jays defeated Bryn Mawr and Susquehanna.
Warmington broke a 12-year-old record that was set by Stephanie Kaliades in 2000. The Ontario, CA native had two kills in a limited role against Bryn Mawr, before tallying eight kills against Susquehanna in the second match of the day.
Susquehanna proved to be a formidable test for the 25-3 Blue Jays, as the Crusaders captured the first set, 25-22. Hopkins erased a seven-point deficit to square the match at 22, but Susquehanna was able to close out the set for the victory.
Hopkins came out with a vengeance in the second set, however, as it opened up a 12-point lead before taking the set, 25-18. The Blue Jays then notched a .390 hitting percentage to take the third set, as well.
Susquehanna jumped out to a 18-13 lead in the fourth and final frame, but Hopkins came storming back to secure the match victory, 25-23.
2011 All-American Meagan Donohoe had 10 kills with a .320 hitting percentage, while Carolyn Zin had 26 assists and Amelia Thomas had 17 digs for the Blue Jays. Sarah Paluck picked up 24 digs for the Crusaders.
In the first match of the day, Hopkins easily defeated Bryn Mawr in straight-sets, 25-10, 25-6, 25-15. The Blue Jays held the Owls to a meager .015 hitting percentage on the afternoon.
The match was fitting as the Blue Jay seniors led the way against Bryn Mawr on Senior Day. Carolyn Mickelson notched two solo blocks and six assisted blocks, Becky Paynter tallied 17 assists and Thomas had a team-high nine digs.
The Blue Jays advanced to 7-1 in conference play, as they clinched a berth in the Centennial Conference playoffs. The squad plays its final home match of the season on Wednesday against McDaniel at 7:00 pm.
