AUGUSTA, Ga. – The UNCP women's
volleyball squad, coming off a 2-1 weekend at the USC Aiken Pacer
Invitational, was upset by Augusta State on Tuesday by a 3-1 final
score. Game scores for the match were 25-22, 24-26, 21-25 and
The Lady Braves (18-9, 5-5 PBC) won the first set, but a rally by the Jaguars (10-18, 3-9 PBC) through the final three left the eighth-ranked team in the Southeast Region with their ninth loss on the season. UNCP had won 10 of their previous 14 matches prior to the setback by Augusta State.
The Lady Braves were led on offense by junior Rebecca Morgan, who recorded a team-high 11 kills on 48 attempts while adding seven digs and two aces to her stat line. Senior Rachel Young continues to hit for a high percentage after notching a .533 attack percentage on nine kills and junior Tiara Anderson eclipsed the 200-kill plateau with eight in the match, giving her 205 for the season.
Heather Bolwerk notched 39 assists for the Lady Braves offense and added 11 digs on defense, giving the junior her fifth double-double of the season, and freshman Marissa Baker led the Lady Braves' defensive effort with 24 digs.
