ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - In the first of two scheduled Black and Gold Scrimmages of the 2013 preseason, the UCF volleyball team's Black squad topped the Gold, 3-1 (27-29, 25-22, 25-16, 25-20), Saturday afternoon at The Venue at UCF. Team Gold took the first set, but Black was able to rally and take the next three sets and win the match.

Junior outside hitter Ashley Gialenios, recently named team captain by her teammates, led all hitters with 26 kills. Fellow junior Delaina Sarden was quietly dominant in the middle with 17 kills, seven combined blocks and a .368 attack percentage. 

Two newcomers also shined for the Knights as freshman Taylor Gallart made an impact on both the left and right side, racking up 18 kills and eight digs on a strong .293 hit percent. Junior transfer Jade Hayes made her claim for the starting libero position with a team-high 24 digs.
