SOUTH ORANGE, New Jersey – The No. 18 Marquette University women’s volleyball team rolled to its 13th win in a row with a 25-16, 25-18, 25-16 sweep of Seton Hall on Saturday afternoon at Walsh Gymnasium.

The Golden Eagles (15-1, 6-0 BIG EAST) hit a combined .301 (47-16-103) and held Seton Hall (13-5, 4-2 BIG EAST) to a mark of just .063 (25-19-95).

MU outside hitters Jenna Reitsma and Aubrey Hamilton were the only two players in double digits with 11 and 10 kills, respectively. Reitsma also added 12 digs for her second consecutive double-double and fourth of the year. She also had three of MU’s six service aces of the afternoon. 

MU led by as many as 10 points in the opening set victory, while hitting a match-best .333 with 17 kills.

The Pirates jumped out to an early 3-1 edge in the third set before a 13-1 run by the Golden Eagles put the frame and the match out of reach. MU led by as many as 13 points in the 25-16 third set win.

NOTABLE:

  • Marquette holds a 21-5 advantage over Seton Hall and has won 12 in a row dating back to 2015. SHU’s last win in the series came in five sets in the 2014 BIG EAST Championship semifinals at the Al McGuire Center.
  • MU is off to its second-best start to a conference campaign under Theis. MU started league play 7-0 in 2017 and its best BIG EAST start overall was 8-0 in 2012.
  • Libero Carly Skrabak recorded her third kill of the year on a set-kill in the third frame. She also added 17 digs in the sweep.
  • The sweep is MU’s fourth in a row and sixth in the last seven matches. Marquette’s lone set loss in BIG EAST play came against Butler on Sept. 24 in Milwaukee.

UP NEXT: The Golden Eagles travel to BIG EAST preseason favorite, No. 21 Creighton, on Friday night and will face Xavier on Sunday in Cincinnati.
