17_VB_HesterMorganAND
SALISBURY, N.C. - - Catawba dropped a mid-week non-conference match against Winston-Salem State University Wednesday in Goodman Gym. The Rams defeated the Catawba Indians 3-1 with the scores of 18-25, 25-20, 20-25, and 21-25. Catawba falls to 3-18 for the season and remains 1-15 in the South Atlantic Conference.

Catawba hit for 11.6% and was led by Kimberly Hurtado’s 13 kills. Abby Benton tallied nine kills, five kills and two service aces. Rachel Stanford recorded eight kills while handing out 22 assists and collecting 13 digs. Alexa Marcy also added eight kills. Allison Benton had 22 digs and two service aces for the night. Morgan Hester dished out 20 assists and added 21 digs for the Indians.

Winston-Salem took a quick lead in the first set with the only tie being at 2 all. The Rams went up by five at 7-12 and would alternate points with Catawba until Catawba scored two in a row to make the score 13-16. Winston-Salem had four straight kills and a service ace to make the score 13-22. A kill by Stanford stopped the run and the Rams only scored one more point before Catawba scored four straight points. The late surge by the Indians was not enough to hold them off as the Rams scored the last two points needed to take the set.

The Indians came out in the second game playing the Rams point for point until two service aces for Al. Benton and a Marcy kill put them up 7-4. Catawba stayed on top leading by as many as five and only allowing Winston-Salem to come within two the rest of the game.

The Rams jumped out to a 0-4 lead in the third set, but the Indians fought back to tie it at 5 all. The set stayed very close having seven tied scores and four lead changes. The last tie came at 16 all and Winston-Salem took the lead on a Catawba attack error.

Catawba fought back from a four point deficit to come within two at 16-18 in the fourth game of the match. Winston-Salem scored three straight and the Indians answered with three of their own making the score 19-22. A kill for the Rams put them up by four and Catawba took their last timeout of the game. Two kills for the Indians got them back to within two at 21-23, but they were unable to score again as the Rams took the game 21-25.

Catawba returns back to conference play on Friday as they travel to Queens University.
