On homecoming weekend for North Greenville, the Lady Crusader volleyball team was in action twice at Hayes Gymnasium.
The first match of the day put NGU against Chowan College. As the game progressed it was evident that the ladies missed Kaitlyn Pierce who was out for today’s match. Missing Pierce’s leadership and skills on the front line, the ladies were not able to get anything going offensively and lost 3-1 (23-25, 23-25, 25-19, and 21-25).
The second match at 4 p.m. was much of the same for NGU as they were overpowered by Lincoln Memorial losing in straight sets (18-25, 14-25, and 19-25).
The high point for North Greenville was that a lot of the very young players showed some positive skills to build on for the future starting with Charity Koschel who had three kills in the match and countless well struck attacks. The other young Crusader who played well today was Haleigh Gilbert who had two solo blocks in the second match of the day.
Sara Beth White also continued to mature for the Crusaders playing very well throughout each set.
