08_VBLimestone_23

SALISBURY, NC – Despite a school-record 37 kills from senior Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC/N. Moore HS), the Catawba volleyball team dropped both its matches in opening day action at the Catawba Invitational Tournament on Friday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Lady Indians fell to Pfeiffer (25-20, 18-15, 23-25, 25-20, 15-17) in five sets in their first game then were swept by Midwestern State (20-25, 14-25, 21-25).

Powers posted nine kills in the opening set for Catawba and had 17 after two games, but it was Pfeiffer who outlasted the Lady Indians in set three to take a 2-1 lead.  Catawba managed to even things with a win in set four to send the match to a deciding set.

The Falcons jumped to a 9-4 lead in the fifth set and held a 13-7 advantage after a kill by Petra Ljubicic when Catawba made a spirited rally.  The Lady Indians reeled off five straight points, the final two on kills by Powers to get within a point.  After a ball handling error, Powers added two more kills to break the record and pull Catawba even.

Pfeiffer would hold on, winning three of the final four points to claim the match.  Victoria Parrish and Brittany Dickens combo-blocked Powers for the winning point.  Ljubicic led Pfeiffer with 14 kills and added a dozen digs and three blocks.  Dickens also reached double figures in kills with 12 and posted seven blocks.

Powers had her 37 kills on 75 swings with just six errors.  Melissa Griffith (Williamsburg, VA/Lafayette HS) added 10 kills and 20 digs.

Midwestern State controlled all three sets in earning the sweep.  Alysha Pritt led the way with 10 kills, seven digs and three blocks.  Shay Velasquez had 14 digs and Allison Schreiber 35 assists and nine digs.  Powers recorded 13 kills and had five blocks for Catawba.
