BUIES CREEK, N.C. (September 30, 2006) - The Lady Bucs swept past their second straight conference opponent Saturday afternoon, defeating Campbell 30-20, 30-25, 30-22 in Carter Gymnasium.  ETSU has now won four consecutive matches, and seven of its last eight overall.

 

"We served aggressively and played consistent defense tonight," said head coach Lindsey Devine. "We played point-to-point and pushed through to the victory."

 

The Lady Bucs (13-5, 2-0) dominated the entirety of the match, scoring the first three points in all three games, and never trailing once on the day.

 

ETSU scored five of the first six points in the opening frame and never looked back, serving four aces and putting down 16 kills en route to the 10-point win.  Senior Jennifer Sartor (Toronto, Ontario) had a monstrous game one, hammering 10 of her match-high 16 kills.

 

The Lady Bucs continued the onslaught in game two, serving out four more aces and collecting 17 kills.  Sartor led a much more balanced attack in the second stanza, tying with junior Callie Kiselich (Colorado, Springs, Colo.) on a game-high four kills.  Seniors Jennifer Emerson (Tracy, Calif.) and Crystal Palmer (Chico, Calif.) contributed three apiece and senior Sarah Buhr (Stockton, Calif.) added two of her own.

 

A dominant game three concluded the match, as the Lady Bucs hit .333 as a team, compiling 15 more kills against just five errors.  Buhr led the even ETSU attack in the finale, amassing four more kills, closely followed by Kiselich and Palmer with three each.

 

Emerson once again directed the potent Lady Buc attack, distributing a match-high 35 assists.  Junior Kaena Apana (Waianae, Hawaii) continued her stellar defensive play, digging out 18 balls for the match.

 

ETSU returns home Tuesday, October 3 with a non-conference match-up against Chattanooga in Brooks Gym.  Match time is set for 7 p.m.
