Doss Delivers Career-High 14 Kills as Volleyball Knocks Off LMU


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba got 14 kills each from sophomore Taylor Doss (Boonville, NC/Starmount HS) and freshman Kaitlyn Whitmer (Ferrum, VA/Franklin Co. HS) in a four-set win over visiting Lincoln Memorial in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Friday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 16-9 overall and 9-6 in the SAC, winning by the scores of 25-17, 25-20, 20-25, and 25-16.  The Lady Railsplitters fall to 21-7 and 10-5.

Doss also added a game-high four blocks to go along with her kills, which were a career-high.  Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) chipped in with a dozen kills and three blocks, while libero Mai Zoua Lo (Hickory, NC/Foard HS) registered 25 digs.  Setter Megan Courson (Statesville, NC/W. Iredell HS) handed out a season high 49 assists. 

Lauren Kiwacka (Trapp City, OH) delivered a triple-double in the loss for Lincoln Memorial, recording 10 kills, 11 digs and 28 assists.  Amanda Horenkamp (Murfreesboro, TN) had a double-double with 13 kills and a dozen digs.  Alicia MacIntyre (Muncie, IN) collected a team-high 19 digs.

Catawba hit 50% in the opening set and pulled away midway through.  Leading 15-12, the Lady Indians scored five of six points, including two kills by Whitmer to go on top 20-13.  Two more kills by Whitmer and an ace by Courson upped the margin to 23-14.  Meeks would kill off the final point of the set.

The Lady Indians rallied to take set two.  LMU was strong early, using a 7-2 run to open up a 14-8 advantage.  Horenkamp, MacIntyre and Candace Richardson (Houston, TX) each had an ace in the run.  Doss had consecutive kills then a block to give Catawba a 21-20 lead.  Whitmer served an ace before a kill and block by Meeks pushed the Lady Indians to set point which came on a LMU ball handling error.

The Lady Railsplitters pulled away late to take a tight third set.  A kill by Alison Hess (Dayton, OH) snapped the last of 10 ties in the set to give LMU a 14-13 edge.  Horenkamp killed off a point to stretch the lead to 22-17 and added two more kills, including the set point.

The fourth set also had 10 ties in the early stages before Catawba used a seven-point run to erase an 11-10 deficit and take a 17-11 lead.  Jenny Young (Roanoke, VA/Patrick Henry HS) served the points with Whitmer collecting three kills in the run.  An ace by Lo and a kill by Whitmer put the Lady Indians up 21-12.  Doss had a block and two kills to get Catawba to match point which Meeks earned on a kill.
