17_VB_EidenbergerMacyTC
SALISBURY, N.C. - - Catawba Lady Indians dropped their home league opener to Tusculum on Saturday in Goodman Gymnasium.  The Pioneers topped the Indians 3-2 in a closely fought five set match. The loss drops Catawba to 3-3 overall and 1-1 in the South Atlantic Conference. Tusculum improved to 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the conference.

The Lady Indians had a seven point lead in the first set but couldn’t withstand the push from the Tusculum’s 12 to 5 point run to tie the set at 21. The Pioneers took a two point lead after the tie causing Catawba to take their final timeout in hopes to slow the Tusculum’s momentum. The Lady Indians were unable to regain the lead and dropped the first set 23-25.

The second set went to Catawba 25-17. After trailing by four, the Lady Indians fought back to tie the game at 11 all. Catawba scored six straight points to pull ahead and Tusculum was not able to catch back up. Tusculum attack errors and kills by Macy Eidenberger and Jade Brooks helped seal the win for the Indians.

After nine ties and four lead changes throughout the majority of the third set, Catawba capitalized on two Pioneer errors and a kill by Micah Ensor to tie it one more time at 24 all. Tusculum broke the tie on a kill by Sabrina Schleuger and a Catawba error gave them the 26-24 win.

The Lady Indians bounced back and fought to take the fourth set. Much like the third set, it was a tight fight until Catawba broke a 15 all tie. The Indians outscored the Pioneers ten to five to finish out on top 25-20.

Catawba had an early 4-1 lead in the fifth set and led 8-6 at the switch of sides. A kill by Cassie Born for Tusculum tied the game at 10. Two kills and three Catawba errors gave the Pioneers their final five points for the win. Tusculum took the decision set 15-11 giving them the 3-2 win for the match.

The Indians hit 16% and had three to post 10 or more kills and was led by Eidenberger’s 19. Brooks recorded 16 kills, 20 digs, and two aces. Ensor added 10 kills for Catawba. Rachel Stanford handed out 47 assists and 15 digs. Allison Benton collected 29 digs and Abby Benton added 12. 

Catawba looks to bounce back as they travel to Shuford Memorial Stadium in Hickory, N.C. as they take on the Lenoir-Rhyne Bears in their next South Atlantic Conference match on Tuesday.
