Volleyball continues success at home

Tigerville, SC – On Saturday afternoon, the North Greenville volleyball team defeated Johnson C. Smith University and Claflin University, both by scores of 3-0, improving to 5-0 at home this season.

“Today our girls came out with a business-like attitude and executed well,” said head coach Greg Mosely.

The first match of the day for the Lady Crusaders was against the Lady Golden Bulls of Johnson C. Smith. North Greenville cruised to victory in the three straight sets by scores of 25-11, 25-16 and 25-10.

 “We passed well and when we do that it helps our hitters get into a rhythm,” said Mosely.

Abigail Frame set the offensive tone for North Greenville with 38 assists in the match. Anjelica Wilcox continued her stellar play leading the team with 17 kills. Rebekah Mayes, 13 kills, and Kaitlyn Pierce, 12 kills, were the other leading hitters for the Lady Crusaders.

On Sept. 28, the Lady Crusaders lost a tough-fought match to Claflin University 3-1. In Saturday’s second match, North Greenville repaid the favor, defeating the Lady Panthers in straight sets by scores of 25-20, 25-20 and 25-19.

“I’m very happy with our team,” said Mosely. “In each set we continued to get better. Today we played the best volleyball we have played all year.”

Frame once again paced the offense with 37 assists while Wilcox, Pierce and Mayes finished with 14, 13 and 11 kills respectively.

After back-to-back wins the Lady Crusaders now sit at 13-11 on the season. The 13 wins is the most by North Greenville volleyball in five years and keeps the team’s goal of having a winning season within reach.

North Greenville will look to make it three wins in a row as it hosts Milligan College on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at 6:30 p.m. in Hayes Gymnasium.
