SALISBURY, N.C. -- Visiting Lenoir-Rhyne topped Catawba in three sets in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Friday night at Goodman Gym. The Bears up their record to 15-7 overall and 9-6 in the SAC with the 25-21, 25-18 and 25-14 win. The Catawba Indians drop to 6-19 and 2-12.

Lenoir-Rhyne prevailed in a tight opening set. The teams battled back-and-forth with Catawba holding a 10-18 edge after a kill from Kimberly Hurtado. The Bears used a four-point run to ease ahead on two Catawba errors and kills by Arroyo and Hamilton to lead 22-19. Up 22-21, LR scored the final three points on two kills from Arroya and a final one from Asher.
The Bears pulled away midway through set two. Catawba trailed just 13-12 after a kill from Morgan, but the LR ran off five stright points to go up 18-12. An ace from Morgan Hester cut Catawba’s deficit to 22-18 before the Bears notched the final three points, the last on a kill from Arroyo.
