The No. 4 Pitt volleyball team continued their torrid start Friday afternoon against Marshall.
Taking part in the Comfort Inn-vitational —held in Morehead, Kentucky— the Panthers jumped out to a hot start and never allowed the Thundering Herd to storm back at any point.
Pitt easily took the first set 25-10 after recording a .600 hitting percentages one of the Panthers’ main driving forces behind their early undefeated season. Marshall played a tad better in the second set, but Pitt still held all control, ending the set on a 5-0 run to claim a 25-13 victory.
The Thundering Herd made it interesting to end the match, but the Blue and Gold improved to 9-0 with a 25-20 win in the third set to win the match 3-0 in only sixty-six minutes. Chinaza Ndee led Pitt with 11 kills on 22 attempts, and Sabrina Starks recorded an efficient six kills on seven swings.
