Volleyball Sweeps Past Winston-Salem State
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Catawba rolled to a seventh straight volleyball win, sweeping host Winston-Salem State on Tuesday night at Whitaker Gym. The Catawba Indians earned a 25-19, 25-18 and 25-14 victory to improve to 16-10 on the year. The Rams fall to 17-13.
McKenzie Garrison (Newton, N.C./Maiden) tallied a dozen kills on 21 swings to pace the Lady Indians. She added 12 digs and three blocks. Alex Hopper (Madison, N.C./McMichael) followed with seven kills and also had three blocks.
Kimberly Hurtado (Indian Trail, N.C./Sun Valley) picked up eight blocks and Evan Schultz (Richmond, Va./Monacan) recorded 16 digs. Setter Rachel Stanford (Mechanicsville, Va./Atlee) handed out 28 assists with three blocks and a pair of service aces.
Catawba jumped to an 8-1 lead in the opening set. Hurtado and Stanford combined for a pair of blocks and Hopper collected two kills in the early spurt. Behind the blocking of Jocelyn Mills, the Rams used their own 8-1 run to tie the set at 15. Hopper would answer with two kills in a 5-0 run that pushed Catawba back on top at 20-15. A solo block by Hopper ended the set.
The Lady Indians led most of the second set and used an 8-4 run to go up 14-10. A combo block from Mills and Mya Snow brought the Rams within 15-13 before Catawba pulled out to a 21-14 lead. Sydney Holland had a couple of kills to cut WSSU’s deficit to 22-18, but a Garrison kill, an ace from Emilee Hawks (Mebane, N.C./E, Alamance) and a Ram attack error gave Catawba the set.
A pair of blocks and a kill by Garrison helped Catawba to a quick 6-0 lead in set three. A Hurtado block upped the margin to 9-2. An ace by Stanford put the Lady Indians ahead 22-11 and Allie Grubb’s (Trinity, N.C./Wheatmore) ace ended the match.
Catawba travels to Anderson on Friday for a 7 pm match to open a key weekend to finish off the regular season.
