Volleyball opens season with a pair of winsSALISBURY, NC – The Catawba College volleyball team got the 2002 athletic season off to a positive start with a pair of wins on the opening day of the Catawba College Volleyball Classic on Friday at Goodman Gym. The Lady Indians opened with a 30-18, 30-8, 30-12 win over Winston-Salem State and then topped Augusta State 30-24, 30-15 and 30-24. Against Winston-Salem, the visitors jumped out to a quick 6-1 lead, but Catawba roared back, scoring 13 of the next 14 points to go up 14-8. Transfer Crissi Harrison (Hickory, NC) delivered three aces late in the game to put the Lady Indians ahead 24-11. Catawba rolled in game two, getting three kills and a pair of blocks from Erin Naumann (Lake Wylie, SC). Catawba kept rolling in game three, gaining a 9-1 lead after a third straight ace by Crystal Bonner (Yadkinville, NC). The Lady Rams fought back to within 16-12, but after a side out, Bonner served out the final 13 points. She completed an outstading game adding six more aces off her jump serve to finish with nine in the third game. Catawba and Augusta had a tight battle in the opening game of their match. Even at 21-21, Catawba used kills by Hope Miller (Newton, NC), Heather Hawkins (Troutman, NC) and Rachel LaRoche (Wilmington, DE) to lead 25-22, then Harrison recorded three kills in the final four points for the win. Catawba controlled the second game 30-15, then rallied to sweep the Lady Jaguars. The Lady Indians trailed 17-10 at one point, but battled back to tie the game at 18-18 on an ace by Stephanie Brendel (Drexel, NC). Consecutive kills by LaRoche gave Catawba a 28-24 edge and the Lady Indians went on to complete the three game sweep. Bonner’s nine aces highlighted the stat leaders in the opening game, while Naumann had six kills, three blocks and two digs. LaRoche and Miller each tallied 11 kills in the second match, while Elizabeth Hewitt (Hickory, NC) had eight blocks and three aces. Bonner delivered three aces to give her a dozen in the two matches.
