Volleyball Drops Three-Setter to Wingate

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba dropped their South Atlantic Conference volleyball match against Wingate University in three sets on Saturday in Goodman Gymnasium. The Bulldogs won the match 25-13, 25-14, and 25-16 to improve to 11-0 overall and 3-0 in the SAC. Catawba falls to 2-6 overall and 1-3 in the conference.

The Lady Indian attack struggled against Wingate, hitting at a negative 2.2% in the loss.  Evan Schultz (Richmond, Va./Monacan) led Catawba with six kills and served a pair of aces. Audrey Hoffman (Dacula, Ga./Mill Creek) added five kills. Allie Grubb (Trinity, N.C./Wheatmore) and Rachel Stanford (Mechanicsville, Va./Atlee) each added three kills with Stanford handing out 18 assists. Meredith Furr (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill) collected eight digs and Allison Benton (High Springs, Fla./St. Francis) tallied seven.

Katie Bludau and Abby Saehler led Wingate with eight kills each. Rachel Alles and Rachel Lods tallied 23 and 11 assists, respectively.
Hoffman led Catawba in the first set with three kills. Kimberly Hurtado (Indian Trail, N.C./Sun Valley) and Stanford added two kills. Wingate was led by Saehler’s four kills. Tyler Smith and Bludau each added three kills.

The second set was the only set in which Catawba hit above zero, hitting 19 percent with only five kills. Grubb led the Indians with two kills. Alex Hopper (Madison, N.C./McMichael), Schultz and Hoffman each tallied a kill to complete the five kills for the set. Oakley Attaway and Bludau led the Bulldogs with four kills. Taylor Williams and Smith each recorded three kills.

Catawba jumped out to an early 4-1 lead in the final set off of the two services aces by Shultz and an attack error by Wingate. The Bulldogs took the lead when a 5-all tie was broken by a Catawba attack error. The Indians battled back and regained the lead after a Shultz kill to break the 7-all tie.

Wingate took control of the set following another Catawba attack error. The Indians put pressure on the Bulldogs tying the set at 16-all but could not reclaim the lead. 
Catawba will return to South Atlantic action on Tuesday in Goodman Gymnasium, as they host Coker at 6 p.m.
