CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- East Tennessee State had four players register double-doubles as the Buccaneers turned back Chattanooga 3-1 in a heated Southern Conference volleyball match Friday night at Maclellan Gym.

The Lady Mocs had won 10 straight against the Bucs. ETSU (4-1 overall, 1-1 SoCon) won the first two games 30-20 and 30-27 before the Lady Mocs (5-1, 1-1) rallied for a 30-24 win in game three. ETSU took the fourth game 30-22.

Mack had 42 assists and Krouse and Buck had three aces each. ETSU's Carey Cavanaugh led the way with 52 assists, 17 digs and eight kills. Kate Steidle had 13 kills and 15 digs, Lissa Allen 14 kills to go with 13 digs and Amber Diskowski 10 kills and 11 digs. Natalie Atzinger added 15 kills and Jessica Miller picked up 13 digs.
