Whitmer's 17 Kills Paces Volleyball Past Lenoir-Rhyne

SALISBURY, NC -- Junior Kaitlyn Whitmer (Ferrum, VA/Franklin Co. HS) posted 17 kills to help Catawba sweep visiting Lenoir-Rhyne in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Tuesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 25-14, 25-18 and 25-19 to improve to 7-2 overall and 2-1 in the SAC.  The Bears fell to 5-4 and 0-1.

Whitmer hit a 44.7% for the match with no errors in 38 swings.  Shay Meeks (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) and Alli Parrish (Zebulon, NC/Smithfield-Selma HS) each added eight kills.  Setter Jordan Raye (Boonville, NC/Starmount HS) had 35 assists with libero Jenny Young (Roanoke, VA/Patrick Henry HS) collecting 21 digs.

Kills by Whitmer and Taylor Doss (Boonville, NC/Starmount HS) helped Catawba pull away to an 8-4 lead early in the opening set.  A kill and an ace by Parrish extended the lead to 16-9.  Whitmer helped build the Lady Indian edge on kills for leads of 20-11 and 23-12 before finally killing off the set point. 

Consecutive kills by Parrish gave Catawba a 12-9 lead in the second set.  Kills from Brooke Christenberry (Mooresville, NC) kept Lenoir-Rhyne close at 16-13, but Whitmer had a kill and a combo block with Doss to spark the Lady Indians.  Parrish posted a kill and an ace for a 22-16 lead and Whitmer again would kill off the set point.

Catawba started fast in set three as Whitmer served three straight aces after a Parrish kill to give the Lady Indians a 4-0 edge.  Young served two aces in three points to push the margin to 14-7.  Whitmer and Emily Richardson (Salem, VA/Salem HS) combined on a block to give Catawba a 22-12 lead, but the Bears made a rally from there.  Whitley Brinkley (Asheville, NC) had a pair of kills in a 6-1 run that cut the margin to 23-18.  Whitmer had a kill to reach match point which came on a Lenoir-Rhyne error.

Christenberry posted a double-double for Lenoir-Rhyne with 10 kills and 11 digs.  Brinkley added nine kills with Kaitlyn Burton (Mills River, NC) handing out 18 assists.
