Volleyball Downed By Wingate in Three Sets

WINGATE, N.C -- Host Wingate posted a three-game sweep of Catawba in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Thursday night at Cuddy Arena.  The Bulldogs won the match 25-18, 25-13, 25-18 and improved to 13-2 overall and 7-1 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 7-8 and 4-4. 

Erin Morant (Bealeton, Va./Liberty HS) recorded six kills and hit at 38.5% to pace Catawba.  Bri Howard (Graham, N.C./S. Alamance HS) followed with five kills and posted a pair of blocks.  Setter Kaytee Frabotta (Sterling Heights, MI/Henry Ford II HS) collected 13 digs with 15 assists.

Shelly Stumpff and Abby Saehler led Wingate with 12 kills each.  Both hit over 34%.  Stumpff added 15 kills and three blocks, while Saehler posted four blocks and served a pair of aces.  Oakley Attaway killed off nine points and setter Iris Brewer handed out 36 assists with five kills.

Wingate jumped out to a 14-7 lead in the opening set as Saehler had two kills and a block late in a 7-2 run.  Catawba fought back and came within a point at 18-17 after a pair of blocks from Howard.  Following a Bulldog timeout, Wingate ran off six points in a row.  Saehler and Katie Bludau each had two kills then got set point on a kill from Stumpff.

Catawba went up 8-5 in set two before Wingate went on a 10-1 run to take control.  Saehler served two aces.  The Bulldogs built the lead to 20-10 and won the set on a kill from Saehler.

The Lady Indians led for much of the third set, taking a 13-10 lead on a kill from Howard.  Rachel Gallup (Fredericksburg, Va./Courtland HS) killed a point to pull Catawba even at 18-all in the back-and-forth set, but Wingate ran off six straight points with Saehler collecting a pair of kills and a block.  Brewer would kill off the match point.

Catawba gets back into action on Saturday, traveling to Coker for a 2 pm match.
