Loss at Anderson Damages Tournament Hopes for Volleyball
ANDERSON, S.C -- Catawba's volleyball team was given a trick rather than a treat as Anderson posted a sweep of the Lady Indians on Friday night at the Abney Center. The Trojans earned the win with a 25-22, 25-12, 25-20 count to improve to 20-6 overall and 13-5 in the South Atlantic Conference. The Catawba Indians fall to 6-19 and 4-15.
Kendall Vallancourt led Anderson with 12 kills and three aces, while Shannon Gillespie added 11 kills. The Trojans hit 41% as a team, including a hefty 47% over the last two sets. Jessica Harris collected four blocks, Alix Hooker recorded 13 digs and Priscilla Irizarry handed out 31 assists.
Erin Morant (Bealeton, Va./Liberty HS) had a match-high nine kills for Catawba and recorded three blocks. Setter Kaytee Frabotta (Sterling Heights, Mich./Henry Ford II HS) generated six kills with 14 assists, while libero Taylor Houser (Mt. Holly, N.C./S. Point HS/Pfeiffer) had 10 digs.
The teams played a tight first set that included 17 ties. The Trojans took the largest lead of the set on an ace from Vallancourt that put Anderson up 19-16. The Lady Indians quickly responded with three points, including a block from Morant. Gillespie put the Trojans up 22-20, but again Catawba rallied to knot the set at 22-all. After a Catawba service error, Anderson won the set on a kill from Jessica Harris and a hitting error by the Lady Indians.
Catawba led early in set two at 6-4 before Anderson exploded with a 17-1 run. Vallancourt had five kills and a block in the surge that included eight unforced Lady Indian hitting errors. Frabotta had two late kills and Meredith Furr (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill HS) served an ace before Hailey Pittman killed off the set for Anderson.
The Lady Indians stayed close until late in the third set. Vallancourt had a kill and two aces to break a tie and give Anderson a 14-11 lead. Leading 16-15, two blocks and a kill from Harris helped push the lead to 20-15. Another kill from Vallancourt gave Anderson a 23-16 margin. Catawba ran off three straight points to make it 23-19 before the Trojans eventually put the match away on a kill from Tinsley Hallman.
Catawba finishes up its last road trip of the season with a 2 pm match at Newberry on Saturday.
