Volleyball rebounds against Presbyterian
by Jordan LoSasso
The Lady Flames volleyball team rebounded from a sweep at the hands of Virginia Commonwealth University Oct. 27 to sweep Big South conference foe Presbyterian on Saturday.
In Liberty’s final non-conference match of the year, Karyl Bacon notched her 1,000th career dig, but her double-double was overcome by strong net play by the Rams. VCU accumulated 12 blocks in the contest.
VCU controlled all three sets winning 25-19, 25-22 and 25-17.
The second set went back and forth with 10 ties and four lead changes. Scripko led the way for the Lady Flame’s 25-21 set two win, hitting .583 and tallying eight kills.
Set three was controlled by Liberty. Pacella’s 1.000 attack percentage and four kills sparked the Lady Flames 25-13 set victory, and 3-0 match sweep.
Scripko’s match-high .375 hit percentage helped the Lady Flames out hit the Blue hose .258 to .060.
Liberty will face first-place conference oppponent UNC Asheville Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. and Gardner-Webb Nov. 7 at 2 p.m.
