NEWBERRY, SC -- Catawba scored a three-set sweep over host Newberry in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Saturday afternoon at Eleazer Arena. The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 25-19, 25-21 and 25-20 and improve to 12-6 overall and 6-2 in the SAC. Newberry falls to 14-6 and 5-3.
The Catawba Indians were led by Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC/N. Moore HS), who posted a .414 attack percentage with a match-high 14 kills and 10 digs. Mai Zoua Lo (Hickory, NC/Foard HS) registered 11 digs and earned 12 kills. Setter Megan Courson (Statesville, NC/W. Iredell HS) had 29 assists.

Newberry opened the first set with a 10-6 lead, but the Catawba Indians battled back to tie the set at 13-all. Catawba would go on a 10-4 run and played well enough on defense to keep NC from making a comeback.
Down by a set, Newberry opened the second set strong and built a 16-9 lead that forced Catawba to call a timeout. Powers took over for the Lady Indians recording four kills and three blocks in a run that tied the set at 18-all. Tied at 19, Catawba finished on 6-2 run that put the scarlet and gray away, 21-25.
The Catawba Indians had the match in hand and opened the final set with an 11-3 run that included three aces by Powers and three kills by Melissa Griffith (Williamsburg, VA/Lafayette HS). NC did not quit and lowered the deficit to two points at 16-14, but the Catawba defense was too strong to crack and Powers killed off the match point.
