RESULTS VS. CATAWBA (2008-09-11 00:00:00)

Misenheimer, NC – Pfeiffer fell to Catawba in volleyball action Thursday night. The Lady Falcons were defeated by the visitors in three sets to one (25-20, 15-25, 15-20, 23-25). Pfeiffer came out strong building off their momentum from Wednesday night’s 3-0 win against St. Andrews, but they were unable to lock in a victory against the Indians.
A high level of energy was present in Merner Gymnasium as Pfeiffer pulled away early. Despite strong blocking by the Indians, Pfeiffer continued to rally and attack the net. Catawba was unable to take a lead past the first point while the Falcons looked sharp and in tune with each other. Their confident play led to a 25-20 win in game one.
Catawba refused to sit back and let Pfeiffer keep control. They settled into their own game and took an early 5-1 lead. Pfeiffer’s defense began to crumble and Catawba was able to extend their lead to eight points. The Lady Falcons were burned repeatedly by tips over the net that landed a few feet short of the back row. Despite struggling, they forced long rallies and made Catawba fight for every point they tallied. Catawba took the second game 15-25.
Catawba continued to outplay Pfeiffer en route to a 15-25 win in the third game. The Lady Falcons sacrificed their bodies, continuously diving to make defensive plays. Catawba was able to stretch their lead to 11 points when the score reached 20-9. Pfeiffer regained their composure to slow Catawba’s advance, but were unable to stop the Indians.
Game four clinched the match for Catawba despite the Falcons’ refusal to give up. Both teams battled back and forth to tie the match at 14-14. Pfeiffer took their first lead since game one with the following point. Huge spikes by freshman Lauren Dickens (Wake Forest, NC) and junior Victoria Parrish (Henderson, NC) gave Pfeiffer a boost of energy and a slight lead at 19-18. Unfortunately for the Falcons, Catawba’s strong blocking prevailed in the intense atmosphere. The Indians took the final game 23-25.
Petra Ljubicic (Asheboro, NC) led the Lady Falcons in kills with 15. Brittany Dickens (Wake Forest, NC) tallied three aces and Lauren Spiotta (Batavia, NY) led her team with three blocks.
Head Coach Ben Guiliano said, “It was a tough loss. We let them gain momentum in games two and three. I thought we did a nice job to get back in the march in game four. Our priority will need to be consistent performance.”Volleyball Box Score Catawba vs Pfeiffer (Sep 11, 2008 at Misenheimer, NC) Catawba ATTACK SET SERVE SRV DEF BLOCK GEN ## Player SP K E TA PCT A SA SE RE DIG BS BA BE BHE 3 Melissa Griffith 4 15 2 38 .342 1 1 3 2 23 0 3 0 0 8 Kalin Collier 1 0 0 6 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 Jasmine Chunn 4 4 2 11 .182 0 0 0 0 0 0 6 0 0 11 Melissa Powers 4 15 3 40 .300 0 1 1 1 3 1 7 0 0 15 Tiffany Andrassy 4 2 0 4 .500 7 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 1 22 Taylor Doss 4 8 2 22 .273 1 0 3 0 7 0 6 0 1 1 Katie Moran 1 0 0 1 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 Megan Courson 4 3 0 6 .500 37 1 1 0 5 0 4 0 0 5 Shay Meeks 4 7 2 26 .192 0 0 0 0 6 0 0 0 0 12 Mai Zoua Lo 4 0 0 1 .000 2 3 2 1 22 0 0 0 0 Totals 4 54 11 155 .277 48 6 11 4 68 1 26 0 2 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 14.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 10 1 36 .250 2 16 2 38 .368 3 13 5 40 .200 4 15 3 41 .293 SET SCORES 1 2 3 4 TEAM RECORDS Catawba (3) 20 25 25 25 4-4 Pfeiffer (1) 25 15 15 23 6-2 Pfeiffer ATTACK SET SERVE SRV DEF BLOCK GEN ## Player SP K E TA PCT A SA SE RE DIG BS BA BE BHE 1 Dickens, Lauren 4 12 5 28 .250 3 0 0 0 13 0 2 0 0 2 Ljubicic, Petra 4 15 11 57 .070 0 0 1 0 12 0 1 0 0 3 Spiotta, Lauren 3 4 4 18 .000 1 0 0 0 2 1 2 0 0 9 Dickens, Brittany 4 9 3 18 .333 0 4 3 0 3 0 1 0 0 12 Parrish, Victoria 4 6 4 20 .100 1 0 1 0 8 0 0 0 0 23 Liebert, Morgan 4 3 0 10 .300 43 0 1 0 17 0 0 1 0 6 Lee, Courtney 2 0 0 1 .000 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 7 Wands, Colleen 3 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 8 Markham, Kaci 3 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 2 8 0 0 0 0 11 Poole, Brittney 4 0 0 0 .000 0 0 1 1 14 0 0 0 0 TEAM 2 Totals 4 49 27 152 .145 48 4 7 6 81 2 6 1 0 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 5.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 19 6 43 .302 2 8 6 37 .054 3 9 9 37 .000 4 13 6 35 .200 Site: Misenheimer, NC (Merner Gym) Date: Sep 11, 2008 Attend: 168 Time: 1:52 Referees: Volleyball Detailed Stats Volleyball Detailed Stats Catawba vs Pfeiffer (Sep 11, 2008 at Misenheimer, NC) Catawba ATTACK ASSIST SERVE BLOCKING RECEPT ## Player SP K E TA PCT A E TA Pct SA SE TA Pct Dig BHE BS BA BE 0 RE Pct 3 Melissa Griffith 4 15 2 38 .342 1 0 26 .038 1 3 12 .750 23 0 0 3 0 33 2 .943 8 Kalin Collier 1 0 0 6 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 9 Jasmine Chunn 4 4 2 11 .182 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 6 0 0 0 .000 11 Melissa Powers 4 15 3 40 .300 0 0 1 .000 1 1 16 .938 3 0 1 7 0 0 1 .000 15 Tiffany Andrassy 4 2 0 4 .500 7 0 8 .875 0 1 13 .923 2 1 0 0 0 0 0 .000 22 Taylor Doss 4 8 2 22 .273 1 0 4 .250 0 3 19 .842 7 1 0 6 0 1 0 1.000 1 Katie Moran 1 0 0 1 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 2 Megan Courson 4 3 0 6 .500 37 1 42 .881 1 1 12 .917 5 0 0 4 0 1 0 1.000 5 Shay Meeks 4 7 2 26 .192 0 0 6 .000 0 0 0 .000 6 0 0 0 0 1 0 1.000 12 Mai Zoua Lo 4 0 0 1 .000 2 0 31 .065 3 2 22 .909 22 0 0 0 0 32 1 .970 Totals......... 4 54 11 155 .277 48 1 118 .407 6 11 94 .883 68 2 1 26 0 68 4 .944 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 14.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 10 1 36 .250 2 16 2 38 .368 3 13 5 40 .200 4 15 3 41 .293 SET SCORES 1 2 3 4 TEAM RECORDS Catawba (3) 20 25 25 25 4-4 Pfeiffer (1) 25 15 15 23 6-2 Pfeiffer ATTACK ASSIST SERVE BLOCKING RECEPT ## Player SP K E TA PCT A E TA Pct SA SE TA Pct Dig BHE BS BA BE 0 RE Pct 1 Dickens, Lauren 4 12 5 28 .250 3 0 17 .176 0 0 10 1.000 13 0 0 2 0 13 0 1.000 2 Ljubicic, Petra 4 15 11 57 .070 0 0 12 .000 0 1 12 .917 12 0 0 1 0 11 0 1.000 3 Spiotta, Lauren 3 4 4 18 .000 1 0 4 .250 0 0 0 .000 2 0 1 2 0 1 0 1.000 9 Dickens, Brittany 4 9 3 18 .333 0 0 3 .000 4 3 25 .880 3 0 0 1 0 2 0 1.000 12 Parrish, Victoria 4 6 4 20 .100 1 0 9 .111 0 1 7 .857 8 0 0 0 0 10 0 1.000 23 Liebert, Morgan 4 3 0 10 .300 43 1 52 .827 0 1 11 .909 17 0 0 0 1 0 0 .000 6 Lee, Courtney 2 0 0 1 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 .000 7 Wands, Colleen 3 0 0 0 .000 0 0 3 .000 0 0 1 1.000 3 0 0 0 0 3 0 1.000 8 Markham, Kaci 3 0 0 0 .000 0 0 12 .000 0 0 1 1.000 8 0 0 0 0 9 2 .818 11 Poole, Brittney 4 0 0 0 .000 0 0 20 .000 0 1 12 .917 14 0 0 0 0 28 1 .966 TM TEAM 2 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 .000 Totals......... 4 49 27 152 .145 48 1 132 .364 4 7 79 .911 81 0 2 6 1 77 6 .928 TOTAL TEAM BLOCKS: 5.0 TEAM ATTACK BY SET Set K E TA Pct 1 19 6 43 .302 2 8 6 37 .054 3 9 9 37 .000 4 13 6 35 .200 Site: Misenheimer, NC (Merner Gym) Date: Sep 11, 2008 Attend: 168 Time: 1:52 Referees: Short Box Score Short Box Score (Match) Catawba vs Pfeiffer (Sep 11, 2008 at Misenheimer, NC) Catawba def.
