Taylor Doss (Boonville, NC/Starmount HS) led the way for Catawba.  She posted 12 kills, with no hitting errors, and added two blocks and two digs.  Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) also turning in a nice effort with a dozen kills, a block, an ace and 10 digs.  Evie Tafuani led the Lions with 13 kills, nine digs and a pair of blocks. 

Catawba used an 11-2 run early in the opening set to erase a 7-4 deficit and take a 15-9 lead.  Doss had three kills and a block in the run.  The Lions pulled within 15-14 on an ace by Kelsi Flora, but the Lady Indians responded four straight points to regain control.  Catawba stayed up by four points or more the rest of the way.

The Lady Indians broke open a tight game in set two.  Down 11-9, a kill by Doss sparked an 8-1 run that gave Catawba the lead.  A Tafunai kill brought Mars Hill within two points at 21-19, but a kill and block by Jasmine Chunn (East Bend, NC/Forbush HS) gave Catawba a 23-19 lead and Doss ended the set with a solo block.

Mars Hill rallied in set three.  Catawba led 20-17, but Mars Hill ran off the last eight points.  Traci Teague had three blocks and two kills in the late run.

Catawba jumped to an early lead in the final set and Mars Hill never threatened.  Kaitlyn Whitmer (Ferrum, VA/Franklin Co. HS) served up a pair of aces early on as Catawba raced to a 10-2 lead.  The Lions never got closer than five points the rest of the way, the last time coming at 17-12.
