Lady Bucs eliminated from NJCAA Nationals

November 17, 2012

The Catawba Valley Community College volleyball team had its season ended on Friday in Toledo, Ohio, but not before making some history first.

The 14th-seeded Lady Bucs won their first-ever National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Div. II Tournament game with a straight-sets victory (27-25, 31-29, 25-11) against No. 6 Moraine Valley Community College.

Jen Beatty led CVCC in the win with 18 kills, while Leah Wells added nine kills.

After falling 3-1 to Parkland (23-25, 25-18, 25-18, 25-22) in the opening match of the tournament on Thursday, the Lady Bucs were put in a position where they needed to continue to win in order to survive in the double-elimination tournament.

Facing No. 7 Phoenix College in the semifinals, the Lady Bucs were unable to keep their tournament run going, falling in four sets — 25-15, 23-25, 25-15 and 25-19.

Beatty once again led the Lady Bucs with 12 kills, while Wells chipped in seven kills.

CVCC ends its season with a 35-2 overall record, finishing in 11th place at the NJCAA Div. II Tournament.
