Beach Volleyball Splits Pair of Battles at Catawba Tuesday
Morehead State Beach Volleyball saw results at the opposite end of the spectrum Tuesday in North Carolina. The Eagles defeated host Catawba 5-0 before succumbing 5-0 to North Carolina Wilmington.
The Eagles (5-7) swept the host Lady Indians with five two-set winners. No. 1 pair Olivia Lohmeier and Allison Whitten shut down their foes 21-8, 21-9. On court two, Bella Williams and Olivia Montelisciani allowed only 12 and 13 points, respectively, to win 2-0. At No. 3, Anya Reinhard and Trinity Miller got themselves back in the win column after falling in eight straight, winning 21-8 twice.
Abby Hulsman teamed with Margaret Musselman to win in straight sets at No. 4, and Raegan Alexander paired with Irene Wogenstahl for a 21-16, 21-11 triumph. The extra flight saw Andrea Grimes and Kinsey McAfee secure a 21-16, 21-14 victory.
Against a tough Seahawk squad, the Eagles went down in straight sets in four of the five matches. Lohmeier and Whitten were able to fight their flight to a deciding third frame but ultimately fell 21-13, 14-21, 12-15.
The team returns home to host the first of two events at Fazoli's Breadstick Beach Friday. Louisville will come to town for two matches beginning at 2 p.m. ET.
