Volleyball loses to Lenoir-Rhyne in four games

SALISBURY, NC -- Lenoir-Rhyne dropped the opening game then rallied past host Catawba to grab a four-game win over the Lady Indians in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Tuesday night at Goodman Gym. The Bears won by the scores of 22-30, 30-20, 30-24 and 30-23 to improve to 11-8 overall and 3-4 in the SAC. Catawba falls to 7-9 and 2-5. Angela Danley (Snellville, GA) racked up 23 kills, while Abby Smith (Virginia Beach, VA) added 15 to pace the Bears. Katie Sloan (Troutville, VA) recorded six blocks, while Katie Novacek (Raleigh, NC) followed with five and a pair of service aces. Amanda Nantz (Troutman, NC) led Catawba with 19 kills and four blocks. Kalin Collier (Rural Hall, NC) added 12 kills and Melissa Griffith (Williamsburg, VA) had 10 kills and 15 digs. Catawba hit at nearly 50% in the opening game and began to get some breathing room midway through the opener. A kill by Nantz put the Lady Indians up 13-9 and a kill by Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC) moved the advantage to 19-13. A four-point run, which included an ace by Nantz, gave Catawba a 26-17 lead. Lenoir-Rhyne quickly took command in the second game, grabbing a 12-6 edge after an ace by Novacek. Catawba got within 23-20, but the Bears reeled off the final seven points to win the game. L-R would also jump to a big lead in game three, taking a 17-8 lead after a kill by Lauren McLelland (Statesville, NC). The Lady Indians battled back and tied the game at 20-20 on a kill by Griffith, but the Bears ran off four straight points to regain control. Catawba took a 6-2 lead in the fourth game, but L-R would go on top 10-8 after a Danley kill. The teams stayed within two points until late in the game. A kill by Danley sparked a five-point Bear run that gave L-R a 27-21 lead.
