Volleyball Drops Three-Set Match With LR


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.

Freshman Kylie Morgan led Catawba with eight kills and 13 digs. Micah Ensor followed with seven kills and two blocks, while Abby Benton collected six kills and 10 digs.

Angelica Arroyo led the Bears with 16 kills, 11 digs and two blocks. Madison Asher tallied eight kills with seven blocks. Helen Hamilton handed out 30 assists, while Ashley Hawkins had 17 digs.

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.

The third set was tight early as kills from Morgan had Catawba even at 10-10 and 11-11. LR answered the second Morgan kill with five points to move on top 16-11. LR scored the final seven points to take the match. Asher killed off the final two points.

Catawba travels to Mars Hill on Saturday for a 2 p.m. match with the Lions.
