15_VB_WSSU1

SALISBURY, N.C -- Catawba got a dozen kills and eight blocks from Erin Morant (Bealeton, Va./Liberty HS) to down visiting Winston-Salem State in volleyball action on Tuesday night at Goodman Gym.  After playing its first eight matches on the road the Catawba Indians finally played at home and posted the 20-25, 25-11, 25-18, 25-17 victory to improve to 4-5.  The Rams fall to 3-4.

Rachel Gallup (Fredericksburg, Va./Courtland HS) followed Morant with 11 kills and four blocks, while Alex Hopper (Madison, N.C./McMichael HS) delivered nine kills.  Evan Schultz (Richmond, Va./Monacan HS) collected 20 digs and setter Kaytee Frabotta (Sterling Heights, Mich./Henry Ford II HS) provided 38 assists with nine digs and three blocks.

In an opening set that featured several runs by both teams, Winston-Salem State prevailed.  After the Lady Indians reeled off five straight points, including two on kills from Morant to lead 10-4, WSSU came right back with eight in a row.  Sydney Holland served up three aces in the run that gave the Rams a 12-10 edge. 

Catawba answered with another five-point run with a pair of kills from Frabotta.  The Rams battled back, winning 11 of the next 14 points to lead 23-18.  Brittani Stewart had a pair of blocks in the key surge for WSSU, while Holland added two kills late in the run.

The Lady Indians dominated the second set racing to a 17-3 lead.  Hopper delivered four kills with Frabotta and McKenzie Garrison (Newton, N.C./Maiden HS) each posting two.  Catawba hit 43% in the set win.

Catawba used a big run late to take the third set.  Down 15-14, the Lady Indians went on a 9-1 run to take over.  Morant recorded three blocks and a kill as Catawba pulled away.  Morant killed off the set point for a 2-1 lead.

The Rams led 7-5 early in set four, but Catawba responded with a 10-3 run to go on top.  The Lady Indians never let WSSU closer than four the rest of the set and ended the match on an ace from Garrison.

Teynia Sheperd led Winston-Salem State with 12 kills, 15 digs and three blocks.  Holland posted eight kills with nine digs and three aces.  Jasmine Smith handed out 17 assists with 11 digs and Michelle Murray-Garcia collected 18 digs.  WSSU hit just 4.3% in the match and had 20 hitting errors to only 19 kills after the opening set.

Catawba jumps back into league action this weekend, hosting Carson-Newman on Friday at 7 pm and Lincoln Memorial on Saturday at 2 pm.
