Friday, September 07, 2001

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. UTC's loss broke its five-game season-opening winning streak and it was the first loss to East Tennessee State since the 1995 Southern Conference Tournament. 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. Chattanooga's Kari Krouse and Cheryl Theis both had 18 kills and five Lady Mocs had double-digit digs -- Kelton Mack 18, Krouse 16, Theis and Dominique Mayor 15 and Julie Buck 13. 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. Steidle also had five aces. UTC hit just .155 as a team, which was the first time below the .200 mark all season. One bright spot was the Lady Mocs' front line, which came up with five blocks. Red Bank product Tracie Grant was in on two blocks and also picked up six kills Chattanooga hits the road for a seven-game stretch starting Sept. 12 with a tri-match against Georgia Tech and Georgia State in Atlanta.
