Lee Volleyball Wins 3-0 Over West Georgia

Tuesday, September 11, 2018
 The Lee volleyball team dominated from start to finish in posting a straight set victory (25-9, 25-19, 25-18) at West Georgia in its Gulf South Conference opener on Tuesday evening.
 
Silvia Sartori recorded her seventh straight double-double with 12 kills and 10 digs while Alex Reuter and Bailey Kress slammed home 10 kills apiece to help in the winning effort.
 
"Alex Reuter was a key player for us tonight," said head coach Andrea Hudson. "She really came to play."
 
Hanna Matthews recorded 37 assists while MaKayla Beebe led all players with 14 digs.
Lee recorded a season high nine aces in the match, including three from Beebe and two from Sartori and Reuter.
 
The Lady Flames (3-8, 1-0 GSC) jumped out fast putting together a near flawless first set en route to a 25-9 victory. Sophomore Allie Koepfer would slam home set point to take the early advantage.
 
The second set saw a tighter contest as Lee had to use a six-point run behind three Beebe aces to separate themselves from the Wolves at 20-15. West Georgia would fight back cutting the gap to three before the Lady Flames went on a 3-0 run with two kills from Sartori and an ace from Reuter to take the second set 25-19.
 
Lee made sure there was no comeback in store for the Wolves as it came out firing in the third set to take a 10-4 lead. Reuter would cap things off with a kill to put the match away in the third set, 25-18.
 
"It was great to start off conference play with a win," added Hudson. "Every conference match will be tough this season so I was happy to see the girls take the win."
 
West Georgia (5-3, 0-1 GSC) was paced offensively by McKenna Wharton with six kills.  Sam Jones recorded 10 assists while Emilee Harris was credited with 11 digs.
 
The stingy Lee defense limited the Wolves to just 22 kills in the match and a .062 hitting percentage. The Lady Flames recorded 43 slams and made just 11 errors on 99 total attacks for a .323 attack mark.
 
Coach Hudson's ladies are back in action on Friday as they return to the sport court in Walker Arena to take on Valdosta State in GSC action at 7 p.m.

HES Can't Be Matched, Replicated Or Cheaply Duplicated

The 118-year-old facility in which the administration, staff and volunteers work every day is at the end of its road. A new shelter space is more than warranted. The good news is that there are county funds ... (click for more)
