Salisbury, N.C.— After a tough weekend in Anderson, the North Greenville Volleyball team rebounded Wednesday night defeating Livingstone College in straight sets 25-18, 25-14, and 25-17.
Livingstone came out and grabbed a quick 2-0 lead over the Lady Crusaders in the first set, but North Greenville rattled off eight-straight points to take an 8-2 edge. The Blue Bears slowly fought their way back into the set and got as close as three points at 21-18, but were unable to finish off the comeback. NGU took the final four points of the set to take the first set 25-18.
The Crusaders and Blue Bears started the second set trading points and were tied at 10-10 but NGU would outscore Livingstone 15-2 to secure the set victory. The Bears responded quickly in the third set jumping out to a 7-2 lead over the Crusaders before coach Mosely’s bunch rattled off seven straight points to take the lead at 10-8. North Greenville rode the momentum to a 25-17 set victory.
“It was good to get a win on the road,” said head coach Greg Mosely. “Anjelica Wilcox played well and had a good hitting percentage and our setter Abigail Frame also played very well. Overall our team did a great job in certain situations and our serves kept Livingstone off balance for most of the match.”
With the win, the Lady Crusaders improve to 2-3 on the season heading into a weekend tournament at Pfiefer University. North Greenville will open their 2010 home schedule next Wednesday with a match against Piedmont.
