Lady Bobcats break through against Crown
It took a little longer than expected, but that elusive first win of the 2017 season finally arrived for the Georgia Northwestern Lady Bobcats this past Friday as they picked up a hard-fought 25-21, 25-23, 25-23 victory at The Crown College in Powell, Tenn.
Jamese Miller and Anna Schorle paced the offense with five kills apiece. Miller also had four blocks, while Schorle blocked five shots, served up two aces and collected three digs.
Tori Hall came through with four kills, 10 digs and an ace. Kayleigh Goff had a solid night with three kills, three aces, four digs and a block. Morgen Simmons had a team-high 13 digs to go with a kill and three aces.
Also contributing in the win was Shanna Burk (9 digs, 5 assists, 1 kill), Jesse Owens (3 digs, 1 ace), Mia Clark (4 assists, 2 kills, 1 dig) and Kaylin Graham (2 digs).
Last Monday, the Navyand-Silver put up a fight, but ultimately fell in four sets to the Covenant College junior varsity squad, 25-16, 19-25, 25-19 and 25-22, in a match atop Lookout Mountain.
However, the home team would stave off the rally and send the Lady Bobcats back home with a loss.
Miller had seven kills and a block for the Lady Bobcats. Hall finished with seven digs, four kills and an ace. Schorle racked up seven kills, five digs and a block, while Goff added nine digs, two aces and a kill.
Simmons had a team-high 15 digs. Burk picked up seven assists, four digs and two aces. Clark added five assists and a kill, while Owens collected up three digs.
The Lady Bobcats (1-14) will head to Cleveland State on Thursday for a 6 p.m. match against the Lady Cougars. They will be back at home at the Rossville Athletic Center on Saturday for their annual Pink Games.
This year will feature a trimatch with Pensacola Christian College out of Florida and Andrew College from Cuthbert, Ga., starting at 1 p.m.
All donations and money raised during the event will go to benefit the Mary Ellen Locher Cancer Center of Chattanooga.
