JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 24, 2007) - The ETSU volleyball team defeated Radford Wednesday night at Brooks Gym in four games, 30-28, 30-25, 23-30, 30-26.

 

"I was really pleased with our middles tonight," said head coach Lindsey Devine. "We practiced being faster in transition and all along the front and to be involved in the play so that we could open the right side and the outside. Callie and Kristan did a great job of that tonight and we were able to get the win."

 

Senior Callie Kiselich (Colorado Springs, Colo.), led the Bucs offensively with a double-double collecting 18 kills and 13 digs hitting .385 for the match. Freshman Erin Ryan (Davie, Fla.), and Kristan Provchy (Norton, Ohio), both had double-digit kills for the Bucs as Ryan had 13 and Provchy had 12 and three blocks. Provchy hit .375 for the match as she had some big swings for the Bucs. Freshman Laura Waddell (Lynchburg, Va.), had nine kills in the game tallying seven of those in the final game of the match.

 

Senior Kaena Apana (Waianae, Hawaii), led the Bucs defensively as she had 28 digs and has been on a roll in the month of October. Senior Marissa Mortensen (Elk Grove, Ill.), and Freshman Lauren Baufield (Plymouth, Minn.), both had double-digit digs for the Bucs as Mortensen had 12, while Baufield tallied 10 and had five kills.

 

"Kaena is amazing and we rely on her so much, sometimes too much but she always makes the plays for us," Devine said. "Tonight Marissa played her third position of the season, and I am really pleased with her effort."

 

Freshman Whitney Cogburn (Kingsport, Tenn.), had 45 assists in the match along with five kills and seven digs. Amanda Youell (Middleburg, Fla.), was big for the Bucs providing a spark in the final game as she collected 12 assists.

 

"Whitney did a good job for us in the game, but when you have an injured player like Amanda who is cleared to play, they always have a hunger to get back on the court and play with a determination to do well," Devine said. "I think her getting back out on the court was the best thing that could happen for her and the team this week."

 

            With the win the Bucs improve to 16-12 overall and 6-2 in conference play. The Bucs finish the week traveling to Boiling Springs, N. C. Saturday at 5 p.m. to take on conference opponent Gardner-Webb in their final conference road game of the season.
