Paced by 15 kills from Silvia Sartori the Lee volleyball team flew past the Montevallo Falcons, 3-0 on Friday night.

Sartori added five aces and 14 digs to record her 12thdouble-double of the year for the Lady Flames. The powerful Serbian hit a sizzling .448 on the night and committed just two errors.

Lee opened things up with a commanding 25-18 victory after closing on a 7-2 run in set one to quiet the home crowd.

The Falcons, coming off an upset victory over North Alabama, held a 23-20 lead in the second game but once again the Lady Flames ended on fire scoring the final five points to stun Montevallo.
Sartori delivered the final blow with one of her five aces.

Coach Andrea Hudson's club kept the pressure on in set three to complete its second straight sweep with a 25-19 triumph.

Kristi Farley set things in motion with 24 helpers while Sadie Johnson added 14 assists and nine digs. Makayla Beebe led all players with 23 digs in the winning effort.

"It was great to get a win here after they had just beat North Alabama," said Hudson. "The team played well tonight with all of our hitters getting involved. This also might be the best serving we have done in a while."

As a team the Lady Flames served up eight aces and were guilty of just three errors. Lee hit a solid .264 in the contest including a .412 hitting percentage on 34 attacks in the opening set.

Kristy Bohan led the home team with 11 kills. Evelina Teran added eight and Amanda Nugent registered six. Liz Tisch tossed up 26 assists.
