EARLIER THIS WEEK
Chattanooga (6-14, 2-5) opened their road trip at ETSU in Johnson City on Tuesday evening.

Despite keeping each set close at the end, the Mocs fell to the Buccaneers in three sets. Paige Gallentine was dominant in the back row, averaging more than eight digs per set with 25 in the match. Gylian Finch reached 900 career kills in the contest with 11 and capped off a double-double with 12 digs. Maia Rackel posted double-digit kills and led the match with four blocks. She is three blocks away from 200 in her career.

GALLENTINE’S SUCCESS
Gallentine has started all 20 matches as the Mocs’ libero this season. She has surpassed double-digit digs in every match and has logged 25 or more digs in five matches this season (the most among SoCon liberos). She is averaging 5.81 digs per set in conference play with 151 in 26 sets which leads the league. Gallentine has played a crucial role defensively, but also sealed the Mocs’ five-set come-from-behind win over Samford with back-to-back aces last Friday night.

SENIORS LEADING THE PACK
Rackel and Finch have accounted for nearly half of the team’s kills this season. The duo has combined for more than 1,600 kills in their careers. Rackel has played a bigger role defensively with 98 digs in 2021, the most in a season in her four-year career. She has 47 blocks and tied her career-best with seven aces, too.
