Volleyball falls a little short in league opener against Wingate

SALISBURY, NC -- Wingate defeated host Catawba in three games in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Tuesday night at Goodman Gym.

 The Bulldogs took the conference opener by the scores of 30-14, 30-28 and 30-27 to improve to 7-1 overall and 1-0 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 1-3 and 0-1. Wingate jumped out to a quick one game lead, hitting 40% in the opening game.

Molly Kerns (Bellefontaine, OH) led the charge with nine of her game-high 20 kills in the game. Melissa Deluca (Bahama, NC) served up three aces as Wingate grabbed a 14-7 lead and never looked back. Deluca served up eight straight points toward the end of the game to give the Bulldogs a 27-11 edge.

The Bulldogs led 17-11 in the second game before Catawba began to fight back. A pair of kills by Amanda Nantz (Troutman, NC) helped Catawba pull within 19-17, but Wingate was able to regain control at 28-21 on a Deluca ace and kills by Lauren Alley (Bristol, TN) and Jacki Emmenecker (Perrysburg, OH). Catawba again came off the deck and reeled off five straight points, the last three on kills by Nantz to get within 28-26.

A kill by Andi Henderson (Swansboro, NC) drew Catawba to within 29-28, but Kerns killed off the game for the Bulldogs. Nantz had six kills and three blocks in the game for Catawba. Wingate looked to have total control of the third game, leading 20-12 after a kill by Danielle Thompson (Channelview, TX), but Catawba stormed back.

Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC) had four kills in an 11-2 run that gave Catawba a 23-22 lead. Kerns and Alley had kills to put Wingate back on top. The duo also had consecutive kills to put the Bulldogs up for good at 26-24. Kerns’ 20 kills led all players with Rebecca Brezovec (Durham, NC) adding a dozen kills for Wingate. Deluca had five aces, 13 digs and 43 assists. Nantz led Catawba with 10 kills and three blocks. Henderson had 24 assists, 13 digs and six kills.
