CCU Volleyball beats App State
CCU women’s volleyball played Appalachian State twice on the second weekend of October, winning both times. The first set of games happened on Oct. 13 in Conway. The Chanticleers beat the Mountaineers 3-1. They then traveled to Boone, North Carolina, on Oct. 15, to play again, beating them for a second time 3-2. Their first game against the Mountaineers, the set scores ended up being 25-17, 22-25, 25-20, 25-21. The Chanticleers had 62 kills, 3 aces, 86 digs and 7 blocks. Leading the Chanticleers in kills was Leah Hardeman with 30, Hardeman also had 12 digs and 4 blocks. Following Hardeman was Kinga Windisch with 13 kills and 13 digs. Hardeman moved into second-place in the Coastal Carolina all-time kills list. The Chanticleers almost lost the second game against the Mountaineers, with the set scores being 23-25, 22-25, 27-25, 25-21, 15-13. The Chanticleers lost the first two matches but came back in the third game taking the game to five sets to win yet again against the Mountaineers. The Chanticleers ended the night with 79 kills, 4 aces, 78 digs and 13 blocks. Leah Hardeman again led the team with 25 kills, 15 digs and 4 blocks. Kinga Windisch followed behind with 17 kills, 7 digs and 3 blocks. Sydney Alvis lead the team's aces with two out of the four, as well as having 29 digs. These two matches mark the second week in a row the Chanticleers have gone undefeated, winning the last four games they have played. If the Chanticleers keep practicing and preparing, as well as making sure they don’t get too comfortable with their winnings, maybe they’ll go on to a third week streak of wins. The Chanticleers play again on Oct. 20 against University of Louisiana Monroe in Monroe, Louisiana, then again Oct. 21 against the University of Louisiana-Lafayette in Lafayette, Louisiana. They will be back at home the following weekend playing Troy University on Oct. 27.
