Late Surge Not Enough for Volleyball in Four-Set Loss at Coker


HARTSVILLE, S.C. -- Catawba was knocked off by host Coker in South Atlantic Volleyball action on Tuesday night at the DeLoach Center. The Cobras won by the scores of 25-19, 25-20, 16-25 and 25-20 to improve to 8-9 overall and 3-6 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians drop to 3-10 and 1-8.

Kimberly Hurtado posted 11 kills for Catawba and hit at 50%. Jade Brooks added 10 kills and 10 digs. Alison Benton recorded 16 digs and Rachel Stanford handed out 35 assists, 10 digs and six kills.

Coker was led by Taylor du Bray with 16 kills and a pair of blocks. Madison Bingle added nine kills and a dozen digs. Christen Bragg doled out 39 assists with 11 digs, while Kara Overhold posted 18 digs and served three aces.

Leading 16-15, Coker began to move away late in the opening set. A kill by Alexis Berles and two from Annie Mansfield started a 5-0 run that upped the lead to 21-15. Catawba closed within 23-19 before an error and a combo block from du Bray and Bethany Prochnow ended the set.

The second was back-and-forth until another 5-0 run pushed Coker to the set win. Tied at 19-all, Bingle had a kill and a block then another block after a Catawba error. Prochnow’s kill ended the set.

Catawba dominated the third set, leading 5-0 and 12-3 after a kill from Brooks. Coker made it 21-15 after an ace from Bingle, but Allie Grubb and Brooks had kills to help end the set.

Coker ran out to a 7-2 lead to start set four. Du Bray had two kills and block. The Cobras went up 21-12 after a block from Berles and 23-14 following an ace from Overhold. Catawba staged a late rally after the ace, reeling off six straight points to make it 23-20. Hurtado had two kills and a block. An error pushed Coker to match point and Christen Bragg put it away with a kill.
