Volleyball Drops Weekend Finale at Tusculum

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. -- Catawba was swept by host Tusculum in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Saturday afternoon at Pioneer Arena.  It marked the fifth-straight SAC win for the Pioneers as they improve to 6-8 overall and 5-1 in the league with the 25-15, 25-19, 25-10 victory.  The Catawba Indians fall to 3-8 and 1-5.

Megan Hasse was one kill away from a double-double after tallying 13 digs, while junior setter Hannah Berling recorded a match-high 23 assists.  Libero Moriah Jones recorded 16 digs.

Catawba was led by Rachel Gallup (Fredericksburg, Va./Courtland HS), who finished with seven kills, while McKenzie Garrison (Newton, N.C./Maiden HS) and Taylor Houser (Mt. Holly, N.C./S. Point HS/Pfeiffer) each tallied 12 digs.  Freshman Rachel Stanford (Mechanicsville, Va./Atlee HS) handed out a team-high 11 assists.


The Pioneers got off to a hot start in the first set, and quickly jumped out to a 7-1 lead.  Catawba cut the lead to 10-6 on a kill from Erin Morant (Bealeton, Va./Liberty HS), but a 13-1 run helped the Pioneers take a commanding 22-8 lead.  A 4-0 run by the Indians cut the deficit to 22-12, but a kill by Hasse and one of nine kills by Laryssa Welch closed out the 25-15 first-set victory.

The second set was the closest of all three games, as it saw the lead change hands three times and the score tied on five occasions.  TC held a narrow 15-14 lead before a 5-1 run pushed the advantage to 20-15.  Catawba was able to cut the lead to 22-19 on a run that featured consecutive kills from Abby Pennington (Blacksburg, Va./Blacksburg HS), but the two-straight kills by Hasse, and an attack error by the Lady Indians, gave TC a 2-0 lead in the match after winning the second set 25-19.

In the third set, the Pioneers benefitted from Catawba hitting -.171, and used two 4-0 runs, and a pair of 5-0 runs, to cruise to a 25-10 third-set win, and close out the match 3-0. 

Next up for Catawba is a road trip to Lenoir-Rhyne on Tuesday for a 7 pm match.
