Volleyball cruises in sweep of Tusculum

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Catawba College easily won games one and two, then rallied to win game three in a sweep (30-12, 30-13, 30-26) of Tusculum College in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action Saturday morning at Alpine Arena. Game one was never in doubt as the Lady Indians jumped out to leads of 5-0 and 16-4. Game two started with a 3-0 Tusculum lead, but Catawba responded with a 20-3 run to take control. The third game was a tighter affair with the Pioneers holding a 13-9 lead just before a Catawba timeout. After the break, the Lady Indians closed to within one, 13-12, but TC answered with three straight points and eventually led 23-17. From there Catawba started its rally and knotted the score at 23-23. The Lady Indians trailed just once after that, 26-25, before reeling off five straight points to close out the win. Junior Crissi Harrison (Hickory, N.C.) tallied a match-high 13 kills for Catawba while junior Hope Miller (Newton, N.C.) had 18 digs and three aces. Sophomore Nicole Scheidt (China Grove, N.C.) dished out 46 assists in the victory. Catawba increases their record to 10-7 overall and 4-3 in the SAC, while Tusculum falls to 6-13 and 0-6. The Lady Indians return to action on Friday when they travel to Presbyterian College for a 7 p.m. match.
