Tigerville, S.C.—The North Greenville Volleyball team opened its home schedule Wednesday with an impressive straight set (3-0) win over Piedmont College out of Demorest, Georgia.
The first set of the night took 52 points to decide as the Crusaders prevailed 27-25 over the Lions. The Crusaders set the pace scoring two straight on Piedmont before starter Kaitlyn Harris went down with a knee injury forcing head coach Greg Mosely to adjust his line-up.
The Adjustments didn’t seem to phase North Greenville too much as the Lady Crusaders went on to win the second set 25-23. NGU was up two sets to none heading into the decisive third set in which the Crusaders fought from behind to win 25-19.
North Greenville was led by Kaitlyn Pierce who registered 9 kills and a .438 hitting percentage. Anjelica Wilcox led the team with 10 defensive digs.
“We are happy to get our first win at home where we want to consistently play well,” remarked head coach Greg Mosely. “The girls did a good job adjusting to the changes after Kaitlyn [Harris] got hurt and played very well. We did a great job fighting back for a come from behind win in the third set and we did a great job closing the door on a good team.”
The Lady Crusaders are now 4-5 on the season and 1-0 at home. The team will hit the road again for tournament play at Piedmont on Saturday the 18th and returning home on September 21st for a match against Columbia College.
