FLORENCE, SC – Catawba’s volleyball team won three of its four matches at the FMU Invitational over the weekend at the Smith University Center.  The Catawba Indians stand at 7-1 on the young campaign.

On Friday, Catawba suffered its first loss as West Georgia rallied to take the final three games in a 26-30, 26-30, 30-23, 30-23 and 15-11 victory.  The Lady Indians rebounded with a four-game win over Glenville State, taking the match by the scores of 30-20, 30-21, 29-31 and 30-26.  Saturday, Catawba posted a four-game win over USC-Aiken (30-20, 18-30, 30-21, 30-26) and claimed a five-game thriller over host Francis Marion, winning 36-38, 37-35, 30-32, 30-25 and 15-10.

Junior Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC/N.
