WINGATE, N.C. -- Catawba bowed out of the South Atlantic Conference Volleyball Tournament, falling to top-seeded and 24th-ranked Wingate in three sets on Tuesday night at Cuddy Arena. The Bulldogs posted a 25-22, 25-13 and 25-16 victory in improving to 27-1 overall. The Catawba Indians end their season at 10-22.

Freshman Kylie Morgan led Catawba with eight kills and 12 digs. Micah Ensor added six kills and Allie Grubb five.  Allison Benton collected 10 digs and Jade Brooks served a pair of aces.

Wingate jumped to a 6-1 lead in the opening set and held a 13-6 edge when Catawba rallied back. A six-point run by the Lady Indians had Catawba on top at 16-15. A kill by Morgan gave Catawba a 21-20 edge, but the Bulldogs scored the next four points to go up 24-21. Ensor had a kill for Catawba before Phoebe Havenaar ended the set on a kill for Wingate.

Set two was tight early before Wingate went on a 10-2 run to expand a 12-10 lead to 22-12. It was a surge midway through set three that propelled the Bulldogs to the sweep. A 10-1 run snapped a 6-6 tie and spurred Wingate to a 16-7 lead which stayed near 10 points the rest of the way.
