Volleyball Takes Five-Set Win at Newberry
NEWBERRY, S.C. -- Catawba snapped a six-match losing streak by topping host Newberry in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Saturday afternoon at Eleazer Arena. The Catawba Indians claimed the 25-23, 25-17, 14-25, 23-25 and 15-10 win to improve to 6-14 overall and 2-7 in the SAC. The Wolves fall to 7-11 and 2-9.
Freshman Kylie Morgan delivered 14 kills with a dozen digs for Catawba. Kimberly Hurtado and Macy Eidenberger each followed with eight kills, while both Allie Grubb and Alexa Marcy posted seven kills. Micah Ensor registered five blocks and Grubb four. Allison Benton dug up 27 balls with Morgan Hester handing out 49 assists with 16 digs.
Catawba overcame a 20-15 deficit and with some late Newberry errors claimed the tight opening set. The Lady Indians ran out to a quick 16-6 lead in set two to take control of the match with a two-set lead. Newberry rallied with an easy set three win and a tight win in set four to force a deciding set.
Tied at 4-4 in the fifth, Marcy followed a Newberry error with consecutive kills for a 7-4 edge. Kills from Marcy and Hester made it 9-5 and the teams traded points until Hurtado put down the final kill to end the match.
Toni-Anne Whitlow had 13 kills for Newberry, who had a big day at the net, recording 16 blocks. Zoe Dinkins had eight with Sidra Triplett in on seven rejections. Kensley Jordan posted 27 digs and served three aces.
