NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. – Sophomore Anne Carroll Ingersoll led the Crimson in kills for a secondstraight match and helped the Harvard women’s volleyball team to a 3-0 shutout over Columbia Saturday afternoon. It was the second conference win in a row for the Crimson who improves to 6-9 overall and 2-2 in Ivy League play.

Ingersoll notched 11 kills, eight digs and three blocks in the three-set match. Four other Crimson players had six or more attacks in the 25-20, 25-17, 25-19 victory. Sophomore Sandra Lynne Fryhofer was errorless, recording nine kills on 11 attempts for a .818 hitting percentage. Classmate Christine Wu led all players with nine digs, while senior Lily Durwood handed out a match-best 38 assists.

The Crimson hit a season-high .371 and held an advantage over the Lions (10-7, 1-3 Ivy) in kills, 42-33; digs, 45-33; and team blocks, 6-3.

Harvard brings its two-match win streak back to Cambridge next weekend when the Crimson hosts Princeton (Oct. 16) and Penn (Oct. 17).
