TUCSON, Ariz.- Yogi Berra put it best, "It's Deja Vu all over again." Setter Dana Burkholder recorded her second triple-double of the season against Washington and her fifth career trifecta for the fourth-ranked volleyball team in the Wildcats' 3-1 victory over the Huskies in Seattle, Friday night. Game scores were 30-26, 30-19, 28-30, 30-27. The victory, which extended UA's school record Pac-10 winning streak to nine straight, improved Arizona's record to 17-3 overall for the season and 12-3 in the Pac-10.
Burkholder tallied 12 kills, 64 assists and 13 digs in the win and also hit .526 on the evening. The outing boosted the Wildcats to victory and broke the tie for the school record she previously shared with Arizona associate head coach Charita Johnson. Burkholder previously tripled up the Huskies in UA's home meeting between the two on Oct. 12, with 10 kills, 68 assists and 14 digs.
Including Burkholder's effort, the Wildcats had six players finish the match with double digit kills. Senior Jill Talbot narrowly missed matching Burkholder's triple-double with a team-high 19 kills, nine digs and nine assists of her own.
Juniors Lisa Rutledge and Shannon Torregrosa posted double-doubles on the evening. Rutledge finished with 17 kills and a match-high 22 digs while Torregrosa chipped in with 10 kills and 15 digs.
