Philadelphia, PA- In a CACC Championship rematch, Philadelphia University volleyball (13-6, 11-2 CACC) wasted no time Monday night winning three straight sets to shutout Georgian Court (7-15, 7-5 CACC) 3-0.

The Rams were led by rookie outside-hitter Leanna Lillge, who came up with nine kills along with six digs and two service aces. Further aiding the team was sophomore middle-hitter Ellie Edgar with nine kills of her own.

Junior setter Adrienne Stigura led the Rams in sets with 12 on top of the 11 added by senior setter Lauren Hoover.
