VB_13_GarrisonMcKenzieMH

SALISBURY, N.C. – Catawba racked up its sixth straight win with a sweep of visiting Carson-Newman in South Atlantic Conference volleyball action on Saturday at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 25-22, 25-14 and 25-22 to improve to 15-10 overall and 13-7 in the SAC.  The Lady Eagles fall to 3-25 and 2-18.

McKenzie Garrison (Newton, N.C./Maiden) and Audrey Hoffman (Dacula, Ga./Mill Creek) each had 10 kills to lead the Lady Indians.  Hoffman would add three blocks and Garrison 10 digs.  Alex Hopper (Madison, N.C./McMichael) followed with eight kills and Kimberly Hurtado (Indian Trail, N.C./Sun Valley) seven.

Marnie Streeter led Carson-Newman with 15 kills and 12 digs.  Kendall Cooley added eight kills, while Natalie Harris had six kills and four blocks.

Catawba opened the first set with a quick 7-2 edge, led by two Hoffman kills and an ace by Allison Benton (High Springs, Fla./St. Francis).  C-N battled back to tie the set at 13 and took a 15-14 lead on a kill by Streeter.  Catawba used a 5-0 run that was capped on a kill by Rachel Stanford (Mechanicsville, Va./Atlee) to go back on top at 21-17.  The Lady Eagles pulled within 23-22 before a kill by Hoffman and an ace from Stanford ended the set.

The Lady Indians rolled midway through the second set.  With the set tied at 10, Catawba used a 10-2 run to bolt to a 20-12 lead.  Hoffman helped start the run with two kills and a block.  Hopper’s kill ended the set.

Carson-Newman led much of the third set until an attack error gave Catawba an 18-17 lead.  An ace by Benton and a kill by Garrison capped the 7-0 run to give Catawba a 20-17 lead.  The Lady Eagles ran off three straight points late in the set to pull even at 22 on a block by Harris and Anna Patton.  Catawba won the match with the next three points.  After a C-N attack error, Stanford had a kill and Garrison an ace to end it.

Libero Meredith Furr (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill) recorded 18 digs for Catawba with Stanford handing out 35 assists.  Benton had 10 kills and served two aces.

Catawba will finish the regular season with two huge road matches at Anderson and Newberry.  The Lady Indians will secure a first-round tournament home match by winning both matches.  The Lady Indians tune up for the big weekend with a non-conference tilt at Winston-Salem State on Tuesday at 7 pm.
