IRVING, Texas – Centenary College volleyball (4-19, 0-10 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) lost in straight sets to #8 Colorado College (22-1, 10-0 SCAC) 25-13, 25-15, 25-18, in the finale for the Ladies in the SCAC Divisional on Sunday, October 11.

While play on defense was virtually even (Colorado College had a slim 8-6 edge in blocks and 42-36 in digs), the Tigers used a 44-23 lead in kills and .387-.088 advantage in hitting.

After Colorado College claimed the first two sets, the Ladies staked out a 5-3 lead in set three. Colorado College claimed the first two points of the frame, but a service error put freshman Hailey Lawson on serve. An overpass kill by senior Lindsey Long and a kill by sophomore Desiree Frey gave Centenary the 3-2 lead. Lawson followed that with her second ace of the match.

Lawson continues to lead the SCAC with 39 aces, just three shy of the top-10 for aces in a season in Ladies volleyball history.

Frey led the team with six kills and eight digs. Lawson also contributed eight digs and five kills. Long finished the match with five blocks. She has 10 blocks in her last four matches (0.77 blocks per set).

After dropping down by two in the third, Colorado College scored eight straight points, including seven kills. Courtney Birkett started the rally for the Tigers with a kill. After an error on Centenary, Myca Steffey-Bean and Amelia Mouw added kills. Abbe Holtze, McQella Adams, and Steffey-Bean recorded kills to force a Centenary timeout. Mouw, who had a match-best 15 kills and also eight digs, finished the rally with a kill.

The Ladies return to action Wednesday against Texas-Tyler. Match time is set for 7 p.m.
