The Liberty volleyball team held its annual Blue-White Scrimmage, Tuesday at the Schilling Center. The scrimmage was relocated to the Schilling Center due to ongoing Vines Center construction.

LFSN was on hand for the festivities, and caught up with head coach Shane Pinder for a post-match interview.

The white team earned a 3-2 (25-21, 21-25, 25-13, 25-17, 13-15) victory in the five-set match. Due to roster size, the teams traded players in between sets.

Overall, redshirt senior Caroline Douglas and senior Jade Vorster led the way with 20 kills apiece, as Vorster hit .421 on the evening. Sophomore Rachel Morris dished out a match-high 48 assists, while junior Susan Babcock led with nine blocks (one solo, eight assisted). Freshman Margaret Latchford collected 24 digs to lead all players, and tied with junior Michelle Melendez for the match high with two service aces.

The Lady Flames open their season this Friday, hosting the 2015 Liberty Invitational presented by La Quinta Inns & Suites. Liberty takes on UNCG on Friday at 7 p.m. in the Vines Center, before facing Fairleigh Dickinson, Saturday at 12:30 p.m. and finishing the invitational against Hampton at 7 p.m.
