9/3/2013 11:38:58 PM
Appalachian State University volleyball won a five-set thriller to defeat Presbyterian College on Tuesday evening at the Templeton Center.
The Mountaineers (4-0) rallied from a 2-1 deficit to tie the match with a dominant fourth-set effort. Appalachian seized the momentum from the Blue Hose (1-4) en route to the victory.
The match began as an early back-and-forth affair until a kill from Lauren Gray (Round Rock, Texas/Round Rock), an error on Presbyterian and a service ace by Jess Keller (Swarthmore, Pa./Strath Haven) would push Appalachian into the lead. The Apps withstood a late run by the Blue Hose and took a 25-21 victory in the first set.
Both teams would need extra points in the second set, but Presbyterian managed to edge a 30-28 win. Appalachian held a four-point lead (23-19) but costly errors put the Blue Hose back in position to win the set and tie the match at one all.
Presbyterian used its momentum from the second set to pull out a 25-18 third set victory. Appalachian took the lead at 12-11 but Presbyterian used two four-point runs to push ahead of the match, 2-1.
Appalachian focused its will in the fourth set, scoring the first five points of the match and winning 25-16. The Blue Hose battled back to take an 8-7 lead, but the Mountaineers unleash on a six-point run to tie the match at 2-2.
Two kills from Emily Corrigan (Johnís Creek, Ga./Chattahoochee) won the match for Appalachian (15-12) as the Mountaineers raced out to a 8-2 lead and did not look back. The Blue Hose were able to pull the match within three (13-11) but Corrigan would nail the final two points Appalachian needed.
Corrigan and Keller led the Mountaineers with 20 kills each, while Gray pitched in with 16. Paige Brown (Overland Park, Kan./St. James
Academy) set a career-high in assists with 58 while Meghan Mahoney (Leawood, Kan./Blue Valley) had a team-high in digs with 18.
Rachel Hallís 14 kills paced Presbyterian, while Ashtin Fran led her tam with 54 assists. Mary Trimpe recorded a game-high 28 digs.
The Mountaineers had 20 errors on 162 total attacks, while forcing Presbyterian into recording 23 errors on 163 attacks. The Apps hit .290 for the match while the Blue Hose hit .245.
Appalachian will continue its road swing at the NC State Tournament in Raleigh on Sept. 6 and 7, where the Apps will face NC State, Towson and Binghamton.
