The Lee University volleyball team ended a six-match losing skid with a 3-1 win over Trevecca Nazarene University in a non-conference battle Tuesday evening in Paul Dana Walker Arena.

“Obviously, we have been struggling,” said Lee head coach Andrea Hudson. “We have spent quite a bit of time just trying to work on the fundamentals of our game and not really focusing so much on the opponent, but seeing if we could fine tune some things. That was our goal going in.”

The Lady Flames (7-9) claimed a 25-16 margin in the opening set and held on 25-23 in the second set to go up 2-0.
The Trojans (10-9) roared back in the third set with a commanding 25-11 advantage. Lee completed the win with a 25-18 tally in the fourth set.

“We did have a rough stretch in the third set,” added Hudson. “Our passing was not well and they served the ball tougher. Near the end of the fourth set, they gave us a few on their mistakes and that really helped us to respond offensively.”

Freshman Abby Stroh led the Lady Flames with 15 kills and three service aces. She also recorded 12 digs in the win. Bailey Kress gave Lee two players in double digits with 14 kills.

Quinne Daoust and Mary Katherine Givhan added nine and seven kills, respectively. Hanna Matthews dished out 41 assists to go with nine digs. Micaela McMichen was the match leader in digs. She accounted for 30 of the 68 Lee digs.

The Lady Flames completed the match with an attack percentage of .236. Trevecca was slightly higher at .237. Lee combined for four blocks to six for the visitors.

Rachel Junen and Daoust were the Lee block leaders. Junen had three block assists, while Daoust had a solo block to go along with one block assist. TNU’s Austyn Baldwin tallied three block assists, while Chloee McDaniel added a solo block to go with a block assist.

Ellie Buffler put away 15 kills and had 14 digs. Mary Holmberg contributed 10 kills and two block assists. Trevecca registered 72 digs with four players reaching double-digits. McDaniel had a team-high 16 with Lydia Younce right behind at 15. Buffler had 14 digs and Claire Hindman was credited with 12. 

The Lady Flames return to Gulf South Conference action this weekend with a trip to West Tennessee. Lee plays at Christian Brothers University at 8 p.m. EDT Friday before traveling to Jackson to face Union University at 3 p.m.

“We need to stick together as a team, keep the chemistry going and I think we’ll have a good weekend,” concluded Hudson.

The Lady Flames return to Walker Arena on Tuesday, October 15, for a 7 p.m. matchup with Shorter University.
