Latrobe, Pa. – The Geneva women volleyball Golden Tornadoes earned their 17th straight win on Saturday at Saint Vincent. The GTs defeated Waynesburg in Latrobe 3-0 (25-13, 25-16, 25-21), then defeated Saint Vincent 3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-14).
The pair of wins raises Geneva’s overall record to 17-1, a perfect 7-0 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference. The 17 straight wins is the second longest in any sport in the 126-year history of athletics at Geneva.
The only longer streak was the men’s basketball team’s 19-game streak in 1992-93.
Geneva has only dropped a single set – to Bethany on September 9 - since their season opener loss at Mt. Union.
Rachel Netherland, a Central Valley graduate, set up the offense with 30 assists. She also tallied three kills or her own, six digs and a block.
