CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. As the 2008 volleyball season enters its final month, the Chattanooga Lady Mocs will wrap up its home schedule this weekend with conference showdowns with Davidson and Georgia Southern.

The Lady Mocs (13-13, 8-4 Southern) are coming off a disappointing 3-0 loss to Samford on Wednesday and will look to rebound against two teams it faced earlier this season as the team looks to hold on to second place in the North Division standings.

Back in late September the team opened up the Southern Conference portion of its schedule with a 3-1 win over Georgia Southern while suffering a 3-2 setback at the hands of Davidson the following day.

Chattanooga will open up the weekend against Davidson (11-14, 6-6 Southern) on Saturday at 2 p.m. The Wildcats come into the matchup as the fourth place team in the SoCon’s South Division and are coming off a split last weekend with Furman and Wofford.

Coming into Saturday’s match, Davidson is averaging 11.4 kills per set and is hitting .157 on the season. Sarabeth Peele provides the spark to the Wildcat offense as the sophomore leads the team in kills per set (3.40).

Hayley Lawson is the team’s leader in assists per set (8.90), and Jennifer Chamblee paces the Wildcat defense with 3.36 digs per set.

During Saturday’s game the Lady Mocs will be participating in the sixth annual Dig for the Cure, a program benefitting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The Lady Mocs will be wearing pink headbands and shoelaces during the match to help promote awareness and donations to the foundation will be accepted.

Sunday’s opponent, Georgia Southern (14-13, 7-5 Southern), comes into the match currently riding a two-game winning streak and find itself in second-place in the conference’s South Division.

The Eagles are averaging 12 kills per set on the season, with Bethany Sanford leading the way with 3.62 kills per set. Blaire Bruggemeyer and Mae Chabra provide a two-headed attack at setter with 7.20 and 6.95 assists per set, respectively. Cristin Haines is the team’s defensive leader with 4.29 digs per set.

Sunday’s match will be Senior Day for the Lady Mocs. The team’s three seniors: Laura Nethery, Michaela Huff, and Lara Newberry will be recognized for their careers and service to the volleyball program. The services will begin around 1:55 p.m. in Maclellan Gym.
