Hopper and Garrison Deliver 10 Kills in Loss to Newberry
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Newberry got past host Catawba in four sets to claim a win in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The Wolves won by the scores of 25-19, 25-17, 24-26, 25-21 to improve to 9-7 overall and 3-5 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians are now 3-11 and 1-8.
Newberry put four players in double digits in kills led by the trio of Alexus Horton (Austin, Texas), Jessica King (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Amanda Soper (Simi Valley, Calif.), who all had 13 kills. Logan Hayward (Sylvania, Ohio) followed with 10. Catawba got 10 kills each from Alex Hopper (Madison, N.C./McMichael HS) and McKenzie Garrison (Newton, N.C./Maiden HS).
Newberry never trailed in the opening set after scoring the first three points. The lead grew to 10-4 after a block by Lauren Prachar (Fort Wayne, Ind.) and 18-9 following a kill from Soper. The Lady Indians closed to within 22 -18 after two aces from Abby Pennington (Blacksburg, Va./Blacksburg HS) around a kill from Garrison. Up 23-19, Soper and Hayward killed off the final two points of the set for the Wolves.
The Wolves would lead the entire second set as well after Horton opened with a pair of kills. Soper had consecutive kills to stretch the lead to 14-6. Hopper got Catawba as close as 20-15 on a kill, but Newberry scored five of the next seven points with Hayward killing off the last two Newberry points.
Catawba responded in set three, turning a 4-5 deficit into a 9-5 lead on two kills from Garrison and an ace from Hopper. Newberry rallied back and led late at 23-22 after a kill from King. Hopper followed a combo block with Ashley Brown (Hendersonville, N.C./N. Henderson HS) with a kill to give Catawba a 24-23 edge. Newberry tied it on a Catawba error, but a kill from Hopper and an error from Newberry gave the set to the Lady Indians.
Catawba led the fourth set early, going up 9-6 after an ace from Kaytee Frabotta (Sterling Heights, Mich./Henry Ford II HS) and two kills from Garrison. Catawba led 12-9 before a four-point Newberry run that was capped on a block by King that put the Wolves up 13-12. The Lady Indians led 18-17 then a kill and block from Horton put Newberry up by a point. Consecutive kills from Soper pushed the lead to 22-19 and the Wolves took the match on a kill from Hayward.
Catawba will travel to Queens for its next match on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
