ROCHESTER, NY - RIT Volleyball Head Coach Roger Worsley won his 300th career contest, as the Tigers (6-4) opened up play in the 2009 RIT Invitational by defeating SUNY Potsdam in four games.  The Tigers dropped game one, 25-22, before roaring back to win the next three games, 25-12, 25-17, 25-7.  Unfortunately for RIT, they could not keep the momentum in the second match of the evening, falling to SUNY Geneseo in three games, 25-17, 25-21, 25-18.

Worsley, now in his ninth season at RIT, is 216-115 at the helm of the Tigers.  He is RIT's all-time leader in coaching wins.  He recorded 84 wins at William Woods College in Missouri. 

Senior middle hitter Victoria Petko (East Amherst, NY/Clarence) hit a season-best .556, slamming 18 kills to go along with nine digs, and five blocks.  Freshman Rebecca Moore (San Diego, CA/Rancho Bernardo) hit .389 with 11 kills, while senior Ashlie Baker (Northridge, UT/Northridge) chipped in with eight digs and seven kills.

Freshman setter Christina Worth (Valencia, CA/Valencia) dished out a season-high 39 assists.  Audrey DiPoala (Victor, NY/Victor) led the way with 10 digs, while Katie Cooper (New Canaan, CT/New Canaan) recorded seven kills.

The TIgers are right back in action on Saturday morning, as they host Clarkson in consolation action at the 21st annual RIT Invitational.  That matches gets underway at 10 a.m.  RIT will then play either St. John Fisher or Ithaca later in the afternoon.
