SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba won a tight four-set match with visiting Pfeiffer in volleyball action on Thursday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 19-25, 25-11, 27-25 and 27-25 in improving to 6-4 overall.  The Falcons fall to 3-5.

Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) came off the bench after missing the first set to lead Catawba with 15 kills.  Taylor Doss (Boonville, NC/Starmount HS) followed with 10 kills, while Jasmine Chunn (East Bend, NC/Forbush HS) and setter Megan Courson (Statesville, NC/W. Iredell HS) each tallied seven kills.

Pfeiffer was led by Jordan O’Bryant (Reidsville, NC), with 13 kills, and Brittany Dickens (Raleigh, NC), who followed with a dozen kills.  Dickens added 11 digs, while Colleen Wands (Apex, NC) handed out 26 assists.  The Falcons hit 32.4% in the opening set, but hit only 6.4% over the final three sets.

Each team struggled in one of the opening two sets.  Pfeiffer used an eight-point run on the serve of Abbie Ovbey (Mt. Gililad, NC) to take command of the first set at 19-12.  O’Bryant had three kills in the run. 

Catawba rolled to an easy win in set two.  Mai Zoua Lo (Hickory, NC/Foard HS) had two aces and Meeks four kills in a run that gave the Lady Indians a 12-3 lead.  A second run was sparked by three kills from Alli Parrish (Zebulon, NC/Smithfield-Selma HS) to put Catawba on top 21-9.

The Lady Indians led for most of the third set, but a late Pfeiffer run gave the Falcons two swings for the set.  A ball handling error and a kill by Meeks staved off the chances.  Catawba scored the final three points with the last coming on an ace by Jenny Young (Roanoke, VA/Henry HS).

The final set saw 15 ties and eight lead changes.  Meeks had three kills and Parrish an ace to help Catawba to an early 11-6 edge.  Pfeiffer responded and tied the set at 12-all on consecutive kills by O’Bryant.  Pfeiffer then enjoyed its biggest edge at 18-15 before a four-point run put the Lady Indians back on top.  The Falcons held off a pair of match points before Meeks record back-to-back kills to end the contest.

Chunn picked up five blocks for the Lady Indians, while Courson handed out 38 assists, recorded 11 digs and served a pair of aces.  Lo also had a pair of aces and 20 digs.
