Murfeesborough, N.C.—The NGU Volleyball Team split a two match set today in North Carolina defeating Lincoln University 3-0 in straight sets and dropping a match to Chowan 3-1.

The Lady Crusaders win over the Lions of Lincoln University was their fourth straight win. North Greenville made quick work of the Lions winning 25-13 in the first set followed by a 25-11 win and a 25-18 win to seal the victory.

“We played well against a very athletic Lincoln team,” said head coach Greg Mosely after the Crusaders fourth straight win.. “I’m very pleased with Rebekah Mayes (outside hitter), she has very good numbers and plays very consistently on defense and offense. Abigail Frame is also playing well for us. She does a great job putting balls in areas that are easy for our girls to play. She plays great defense as well.”

The Crusaders headed into the second match of the day looking to win their fifth straight and looked poised to do so after picking up a first set win 25-18. NGU played Chowan close for the next three sets but the Hawks would prove too much for North Greenville however as they went on to win the next three sets with scores of 25-20, 25-20, and 25-23.

“Chowan is a very good team. We handled them well but we are still beating ourselves against good competition,” said Mosely. “We have to work on limiting un-forced errors. It was a good weekend overall however we have to get ready for another five game week this week. Hopefully we can get on the right side of .500.”
