Parrish's Triple Double Helps Lead Volleyball Past C-N

JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Catawba reeled off the final four points to close out a five-set win over host Carson-Newman in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Friday night at Holt Fieldhouse.  The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 25-18, 23-25, 15-25, 25-15 and 15-13 to improve to 12-13 overall and 9-8 in the SAC.  The Lady Eagles fall to 11-15 and 5-12.  The win was the second time this season Catawba had topped Carson-Newman in five sets, marking its only five-set wins in eight tries.

Senior Alli Parrish (Zebulon, NC/Smithfield-Selma HS) posted a triple-double to help lead Catawba, posting 11 kills, 17 digs and 20 assists.  Freshman Rachel Gallup (Fredericksburg, VA/Courtland HS) added 13 kills, Kaitlyn Whitmer (Ferrum, VA/Franklin Co. HS) 12 and Carson Brewer (Raleigh, NC/Middle Creek HS/Cape Fear CC) 10.  Whitmer added 15 digs.

Down 13-11 in the final set, Whitmer and Gallup had kills to even the set.  Following a C-N attack error, Brewer killed off the final point.  A kill from Gallup had given the Lady Indians an 11-9 edge, but Carson-Newman rallied back on two kills from Emily Schultz surrounded by Catawba errors.

Schultz and Rachel Harper each had a dozen kills to pace Carson-Newman.  Sabina Papala recorded nine kills and seven blocks.  Schultz added five blocks, while Harper posted 11 digs. 

Gallup had a kill and a block to help Catawba get on top 11-8 in set one.  A combo block from Whitmer and Savannah Tomlinson (Remsenburg, NY/Southampton Beach HS/UNCG) pushed the margin to 14-9.  Consecutive kills from Ashley Ferris pulled C-N within 22-17, but Whitmer posted a pair of kills in the final three points to end the set.

Carson-Newman pulled away late to take a tight second set.  Kills from Lauren Santarelli and Rachel Harper put the Lady Eagles up 17-15 and another Harper kills made the score 20-17.  Catawba rallied on two kills from Whitmer and one from Brown to even the set.  Parrish had Catawba up 22-21, but C-N scored three straight points on kills from Papala, Rachael Bowlin and a Catawba error.  Schultz ended the set on a kill. 

The teams traded easy wins in sets three and four.  After a Schultz kill and a Papala block, C-N led 8-2 in the third.  The Lady Eagles went on top 19-9 on another Schultz kill and Papala killed off the set.  Catawba used a 4-1 run early in set four which included two kills from Brewer to go up 10-6.  An 8-4 run that was capped by an ace by Parrish upped the Catawba edge to 20-12.  Whitmer had two late kills before an error ended the set.

Catawba will conclude its regular season on Saturday afternoon with a 2 p.m. match at Lincoln Memorial.
