Lee Volleyball Wins 3-0 Over Alabama-Huntsville

Saturday, October 12, 2013
The Lee volleyball squad continued their stellar play at home with a straight set victory (25-21, 25-22, 25-23) over Gulf South Conference (GSC) foe Alabama-Huntsville Friday evening in Walker Arena.

Despite playing their first year in the NCAA Division II and the GSC the Chargers and Lady Flames are no strangers. Tonight marked the 30th meeting between the two clubs. With Friday's victory Lee now holds a 12-18 record against the Alabama club.

The Lady Flames have now won six consecutive matches on their home court, including three straight GSC home contests.


Coach Andrea Hudson's club jumped out to the early advantage taking the first set from the Chargers 25-21. The second and third sets were much of the same as the Lady Flames pulled away late each time to secure the victory.

Paula Martins paced the attack for Lee registering a double-double with 15 kills and 11 digs. Patty Orozco added 10 kills and four blocks. Latrice Johnson registered nine kills and was solid on the back line with 14 digs. Libby Peigen anchored the defense with 17 digs. Setter Becky Bourne, filling in for Camil Martinez who is away from the team playing for the Dominican Republic U23 national team, tallied 44 assists to set up the attack.

The victory moves the Lady Flames to 7-5 on the year and pushes them back above the .500 mark in the GSC at 4-3. The loss drops Alabama-Huntsville to 6-10 overal and 3-5 in conference play.

Olivia Bauman led the Chargers with 14 kills while Ashton Baker set things up for UAH with 24 assists and added 12 digs.

The Lady Flames will be right back to work tomorrow afternoon at Walker Arena when they welcome another GSC challenger in the University of North Alabama. First serve is set for 2 p.m.
