AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Catawba fell to West Alabama in three sets in volleyball action on Saturday at the Augusta Invitational at Christenberry Fieldhouse. The Catawba Indians fell 25-21, 25-18 and 25-17 to drop to 4-7 on the year. West Alabama improved to 6-2.

Allie Grubb recorded eight kills and three blocks to pace Catawba. Micah Ensor added six kills, two blocks and 14 digs. Allison Benton totaled 15 digs, while Morgan Hester posted 20 assists and three aces.

Catawba used a 10-3 run early in the opening set to go up 14-11 after a kill from Ensor. Grubb had two kills and Hester an ace in the run. Tied at 18-all, West Alabama pulled away with four consecutive points. An ace from Jade Brooks brought Catawba within 23-21, but kills from Madison Cooler and Taylor Donato ended the set.

West Alabama moved out to a 16-9 lead in set three and was able to hold off the Lady Indians. Catawba clawed within 18-16 on a combo block from Kimberly Hurtado and Macy Eidenberger, but that was a close as the set got. The Tigers scored five straight points and went to sweep the match.
