For the second-straight season, the Catawba Valley Community College women’s basketball program is perfect through its first five games.

Behind dominant performances from its sophomores, the Red Hawks (5-0) handed the Mount Olive JV team a 97-52 defeat on Sunday afternoon at the Tarlton Complex.

CVCC forward Aaliyah Chaplin added to her career-high performance from Tuesday by recording her third-straight double double this season. The sophomore from Chapel Hill, N.C. scored 27 points on 13-of-22 shooting and also recorded 11 rebounds and four blocks in the contest.

Red Hawks sophomore guard Aniya Taylor tallied her second 20-point performance in three games in Sunday’s contest. Taylor, who is also from Chapel Hill, scored 23 points and added eight rebounds, six assists and four steals.

Former Newton-Conover High School product Ivy Eller also tied her career high at CVCC with 21 points, including making 9-of-12 shots from the free throw line, and a fourth Catawba Valley sophomore — Tazah Hardin — nearly recorded a quadruple double with 10 points, nine rebounds, nine steals and seven assists.

The Red Hawks led 23-16 at halftime, but grew their lead over the Trojans to 54-29 by the halftime break. Taylor led the first-half charge with a team-high 17 points.

Catawba Valley was at its most dominant during the fourth quarter, outscoring Mount Olive 20-9 during the final stanza, and led by Chaplin’s 17 second-half points, the Red Hawks outscored the Trojans 44-29 in the third and fourth quarters to go on to the 46-point win.

The CVCC women’s basketball team will try to make it six wins in a row to start the season on Wednesday when the Red Hawks open conference play at home against Lenoir Community College (1-6, 1-5). Tip off is set for 5 p.m. Admission is free.
