Volleyball drops SAC opener in five games

SALISBURY, NC -- Wingate University outlasted Catawba in five games to claim the South Atlantic Conference volleyball opener. The Bulldogs took a 30-21, 23-30, 30-26, 19-30, 15-12 win over the defending league champions. The win improves Wingate to 10-3, while Catawba falls to 2-4. Wingate jumped out quickly in the opening game, leading by as much as 14-6. Catawba fought back to even the game at 16-16, but a pair of blocks and a kill by Shaunna Dixon (San Antonio, TX) gave momentum back to Wingate, who began to pull away. The Lady Indians bounced back in the second game. Trailing 11-8, Megan Bowman (Hagerstown, MD) helped Catawba reel off seven straight points to take control of the game. Game three was a tight battle throughout. Wingate had several three point leads early, but Catawba inched ahead 23-21. The Bulldogs rallied, winning eight of the next 10 points to earn the win. Catawba cruised to a win in the fourth game, building a 23-14 edge, then winning 30-19 to set up the fifth game. After surrendering the opening two points to Catawba, Wingate rebounded to grab a 3-2 lead it would never relinquish. Dixon led Wingate with 22 kills and added 23 digs and two blocks. Stephanie Poole (Dallas, TX) registered 50 assists, while Barbie Baltimore (Reading, OH) had nine kills and two blocks. For Catawba, freshman Elizabeth Hewitt (Hickory, NC) recorded 17 kills and had five blocks. Rachel LaRoche (Wilmington, DE) had 21 digs, 15 kills and two aces.
