Sophomore Radka Dimitrova (Sofia, Bulgaria) and 2001 All-conference senior setter Carrie Bosworth (Centreville, Mass.) each recorded double-doubles, but it wasn't enough for the No. 5 Dolphins as they fell to No. 4 Florida Atlantic, 3-1, Friday in the first round of the Atlantic Sun Championship tournament at FAU Gym.
Dimitrova tallied 14 kills and 10 digs for the Dolphins, while Bosworth added 50 assists to along with a match-high 18 digs in her final match as a Dolphin. Junior middle hitter Brooke Ahrens (Benson, Ill.) led JU's offensive attack with a team-high 15 kills, while Alesha Rodriguez chipped in with 12 kills. Kristen Withrow (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and senior Jackie Buran (Milwaukee, Wisc.) contributed with 13 and 10 digs, respectively, for the Dolphin defensive.
JU fell behind, 2-0, losing the first two games 26-30 and 21-30. The Dolphins fought back hard, to win game three, 30-27. The Owls' attack proved too much for JU as the Dolphins dropped the fourth frame, 22-30.
The Dolphins finish the season with an 8-17 overall record, including a 6-4 conference mark.
