SALISBURY, NC – Catawba served up 10 aces, including seven by senior Melissa Griffith (Williamsburg, VA/Lafayette HS), in a three-set sweep of visiting Brevard in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 17-9 overall and 9-5 in the SAC, winning by the scores of 25-22, 25-9 and 25-14.  The Tornados fall to 11-16 and 2-13.

Griffith also led Catawba with 13 kills and added eight digs in the win.  Melissa Powers (Bennett, NC/N. Moore HS) posted a dozen kills and three aces.  Freshman Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) added 10 kills and four blocks, while setter Megan Courson (Statesville, NC/W. Iredell HS) dished out 36 assists.

The teams battled through a tight opening set with Brevard taking a 22-21 lead on a four-point run that included a block and kill by Jordei Osby (Goldsboro, NC).  Catawba responded as Griffith killed off four straight points to give the Lady Indians the set.

It was Griffith who keyed the set two win, taking the serve with Catawba leading 9-7 and reeling off 13 straight points.  The run included a stretch of five consecutive aces.  Griffith had two more aces in the final set to help Catawba build a 12-6 edge.  A Griffith kill later in the set pushed the lead to 18-10 and Powers ended the match on a kill.

Chelsey Trojan (Sacramento, CA) led Brevard with nine kills and six digs.  Brooke Seaman (Spring Hill, FL) also had nine kills.  Setter Jami Perry (Greer, SC) had 18 assists and 14 digs.
