Denison knocked off Wooster 3-1 (25-19, 25-15, 23-25, 27-25) on Tuesday in North Coast Athletic Conference action from Livingston Gymnasium in Granville, Ohio.

The four-set win snapped a 10-match skid against the Fighting Scots that dated back to 2007.  DU's last victory over Wooster was a 3-0 road win on Oct. 27, 2006.  The last home victory over the Scots came roughly a month early, a 3-1 decision on Sept. 29.

The Big Red appeared to have things in control after posting a six-point win in the opening set and a 10-point victory in the second.  However, Wooster came out on fire in the third set, rattling off 12 of the first 14 points.  Despite the early hole, Denison rallied the entire set, eventually trimming the deficit to 22-21.  Unfortunately, the Big Red comeback fell short as the Scots took the third set via 25-23 decision.

The fourth set was a back-and-forth battle from the get go.  With the score tied at 20-20, the two squads traded off the next 10 points which resulted in a 25-25 score.  Looking to avoid a fifth set, first-year Brittany Perry hammered down back-to-back kills to secure the DU victory.

Perry and classmate Kenzie Kuhn blasted 19 kills apiece, while Elena Lein converted 17 of 24 attempts with just two errors.  Sophomore setter Jessica Borsani dished out 64 assists, while Perry and Sarah Blum each served up two aces.  On defense, libero Emily Marguerite and Perry posted 24 and 18 digs, respectively, while Allie Becker and Blum each registered 12 digs.  Lein dominated the net with three solo blocks and three block assists.

The Scots were paced by Paige Parker's 12 kills.  Parker also had four block assists, while Melissa Morgan chipped in 10 kills and eight assisted blocks.  Libero Kelley Johnson logged 30 digs, while setter Autumn Berry has 37 assists.

Denison improves to 14-5 overall and 2-2 in the NCAC, while Wooster falls to 12-7 on the year and 1-3 in league play.  The Big Red returns to the court on Thursday when they host Muskingum University at 7 p.m.
