AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Catawba dropped two games on Friday in a tournament hosted by Augusta Univeristy at Christenberry Fieldhouse. The Catawba Indians lost to both Barton and Augusta to fall to 4-6 on the year. Barton improved to 2-9, while Augusta moved to 8-1.

To open the day, Catawba dropped a very tight match to Barton 27-25, 26-24 and 25-23. Allie Grubb led Catawba with 10 kills and three blocks. Jade Brooks added nine kills, four blocks and 11 digs. Morgan Hester delivered 31 assists and served four aces, while Abby Benton totaled 17 digs.

Catawba was down 24-22 in the opening set before a kill and combo block by Grubb tied the score. Barton got two kills from Kelsey Riquelme to end the set. The Lady Indians went down 8-1 in the second set before stomring back to lead 14-11. Hester served three of her aces in a 10-0 run.

Barton recovered to lead 24-21, but Catwaba reeled off three straight points one a kill by Micah Ensor. Kaytlin Elkins posted two kills to win the set for the Bulldogs. Down 23-20 in the final set, Catawba pulled even after two aces by Ensor, but a kill by Sarah Kirk and a Catawba attack error ended the match.

Augusta claimed a 25-16, 25-18 and 25-17 victory in Catawba second match of the day. Brooks picked up eight kills with 10 digs, while Kimberly Hurtado collected seven kills. Allison Benton recorded 15 digs and Hester handed out 26 assists.

The Jaguars took a 9-4 lead in the opening set and held a comfortable edge for most of the set. Catawba closed within 17-14 after a kill by Ensor, but four straight Augusta points took the hosts to a 21-14 edge. Augusta also got on top in set two then held off Catawba after the Lady Indians pulled within 17-15 on a kill by Alexa Marcy.

Augusta stormed to an 8-1 lead in set two. Back-to-back kills from Hurtado brought Catawba within 11-8, but the Jaguars went on a 10-4 run following a timeout to go up 21-11.

Catawba is set to take on West Alabama on Saturday at 11:30 am.
