CULLOWHEE, N.C. The Chattanooga volleyball team extended its winning streak to a season-high four games on Sunday as the Lady Mocs swept Western Carolina 3-0. The Lady Mocs (17-13, 12-4 Southern) took the contest from the Catamounts (6-24, 3-13 Southern) 25-22, 25-19, and 25-12.

The win gives the Lady Mocs a sweep of Western Carolina for the season as UTC defeated the Catamounts 3-0 back on Oct. 4.

Aurore Kullak was the offensive leader for the Lady Mocs in the victory as the sophomore put up 11 kills and a .310 hitting percentage.

Laura Nethery and Jessica Scott were also key figures for the Chattanooga offense as the two recorded nine and eight kills, respectively.

Michaela Huff also had a strong match for the Lady Mocs with a match-high 31 assists. The senior also had three of UTC’s eight service aces and eight digs on the afternoon.

Defensively, the Lady Mocs were once again led by Lara Newberry who posted a match-high 18 digs as the team held WCU to a .104 hitting percentage.

For Western, the Catamounts were led by Carrie Minogue with a match-high 12 kills and Katie Hennessey with 24 assists.

In what has been a trend for the Lady Mocs during its four-game winning streak, Chattanooga was able to take the opening set of the match with a 25-22 win in the first frame.

After taking the second set 25-19, the Lady Mocs would take the final set in decisive fashion with a 25-12 victory.

During the last set UTC ended the match on a 14-4 run to ensure the Lady Mocs’ victory and guarantee Chattanooga would remain in second place going into the final week of the season.

Chattanooga will return to the court on Friday against UNC Greensboro for the final weekend of the regular season. The battle will most likely decide who the No. 2 seed will be from the Southern Conference’s North Division in the conference tournament.

First serve will be at 7 p.m. from Greensboro, N.C.

As of Sunday night, both teams are tied at 12-4 in conference play with the Lady Mocs holding the tiebreaker due to 3-1 victory over the Spartans on Oct. 25.

Following its game with UNCG, the Lady Mocs will wrap up the regular season against Elon on Nov. 15 at 2 p.m.
