Columbia, S.C.—The North Greenville Volleyball picked up it’s fourth win in five games Tuesday night with a 3-1 triumph over the Benedict College Panthers.

Benedict set the pace during the first set of the night escaping with a 26-24 win over NGU which led for most of the set. The Lady Crusader tied the match with a 25-19 second set win. North Greenville would go on to win sets two and three with scores of 25-18 and 25-23.

The Crusaders are now 2-0 against Benedict this year while improving their record to 16-12 on the season. The 16 wins during the 2010 season are the most wins ever for the team during the NCAA Division II era.

“This was a quality win against a good opponent,” remarked head coach Greg Mosely. The Lady Pathers are 16-3 on the season and in first place in their conference.

“We weren’t on our best game but we persevered in a hostel environment, which was good for us. I think having Kayla O’kelly back has helped us especially with her serving abilities.”

NGU will take the court again Wednesday night at home with a match against local rival Newberry College. The match is set to tip at 6:30. Wednesday night is also “Dig Pink” night. Fans in attendance are encouraged to wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Prizes will be given to those in attendance and “Dig Pink” t-shirts will be on sale for $10. Come out and support the Lady Crusaders and breast cancer awareness.
