HICKORY, NC -- Lenoir-Rhyne upset visiting Catawba, claiming a three-set sweep in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Tuesday night at Shuford Gym.  The Bears won by the scores of 25-18, 25-18 and 25-19 to improve to 11-16 overall and 3-8 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 15-9 and 7-5.

The Bears put up a dozen blocks as a team, led by Katie Novecek (seven assists), Kassi Henry (six assists) and Chelsea Hill (five assists) to key the win.  Catawba hit at a minus-eight percent clip, recording just 28 kills with 29 errors.  Hill added nine kills for the Bears with Lindsey Cantu picking up eight.  Melissa Griffith (Williamsburg, VA/Lafayette HS) led Catawba with nine kills, while Mai Zoua Lo (Hickory, NC/Foard HS) and Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) each added seven.

The Bears pulled away late to take the opening set.  Meeks drew Catawba within 20-17 on a kill, but Novacek responded with a kill for L-R, who scored four straight points for a 24-17 edge.  A ball handling error on Catawba provided the final point.

A four-point run in set two gave Lenoir-Rhyne a lead it would never loose.  The Bears led by as many as seven points in the set, but again saw Catawba get to 20-17, this time on a kill by Lo.  The Bears scored the next three points to secure the set, two coming from Caroline Albertelli on a kill and block.

Lenoir-Rhyne never trailed in set three, breaking away from a 6-all tie with a 10-4 run.  The Lady Indians twice pulled within a point, the last at 17-16, but kills from Brooke Christenberry and Hill sparked a four-point run and a 21-16 edge.
