Horents Take ODAC Finale

Lynchburg, VA - Hollins University Volleyball at Lynchburg College, October 30, 2013

Box score

Wednesday night saw the final ODAC match of the season for the Hollins volleyball team.  Hollins traveled to Lynchburg College to face the Hornets in their ODAC finale.  The gym was packed on a night when the Lynchburg College community had a 'pink out' in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The first set saw the two teams exchange points in the early going.  The score remained close until the home standing Hornets pulled away late for a 25-19 win.  The second frame was not as close as Lynchburg scored early and often in building a big lead and finished off their visitors 25-11.  Hollins played a spirited third set but it wasn't to be as Lynchburg won the set, 25-13, and the match, 3-0.


Rikki Martinez awaits the Moore set


For the second consecutive match, Rikki Martinez (Corpus Christi, TX) led the Hollins offensive attack.  Martinez recorded a team high nine kills, four digs, and a service ace.  Fellow Outside hitter Jessie Deese (Cary, NC) added four kills while leading the team with 10 digs.  Lela Moore (Woodleaf, NC) killed two of her six attacks to go with her 12 assists, two digs, and service ace.

Lynchburg College enjoyed a 43-19 advantage in kills, led by Aricquel Payne with 13.  Mackenzie Ross added seven kills and 16 assists while Gabby Myers handed out a match high 18 assists.

Hollins will wrap up their regular season with a trip to Maryland.  Hollins will play a tri-match with Frostburg and St. Mary's on Saturday.
