Henderson Posts Record 83 Assists as Volleyball Takes Out Lander in Five Games


GREENWOOD, SC -- Catawba claimed a marathon five-game win over host Lander on Tuesday night at Horne Arena.  Senior setter Andi Henderson (Swansboro, NC/Swansboro HS) set a new school record for assists in a match with 83 in the 30-26, 37-35, 33-35, 26-30 and 15-13 victory.  The previous record of 75 was set by Ann Fulk in 2000.  With the win, the Catawba Indians improve to 16-3, while the Bearcats fall to 11-5.

 Catawba won the first two games then dropped the next two before taking the tight fifth game.  Junior Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC/N. Moore HS) led Catawba with 31 kill, tying her season and career high.  Melissa Griffith (Williamsburg, VA/Lafayette HS) added 23 kills and 26 digs. 

 Henderson added 13 digs, six kills and three blocks to her record-breaking assist total.  She needs 354 assists to set the school career mark and would achieve the mark in three seasons.  Nikki Bozick (Boca Raton, FL/W.
