Scotties Beat Mountaineers to Extend Season

Scotties Beat Mountaineers to Extend Season

BEREA,Ky.—Agnes Scott Women's Volleyball got the win it needed in the final match of the regular season to clinch a postseason berth in the upcoming USA South. The Scotties rebounded from a 3-1 loss to LaGrange in the first match of the day to beat host Berea in four sets.

The Scotties cruised through the first two sets against Mountaineers, winning 25-12 and 25-16 respectively. Agnes had struggled in early sets during a nine-match losing streak, but the earlier match against LaGrange had the Scotties firing from the start. Berea fought back in the third set with a tight 25-22 win after falling on the right side of a back-and-forth finish.

The Mountaineers were poised to even the match with substantial leads at several points in the fourth, including holding a 24-21 advantage with three set points to play with. However, Agnes Scott won the final five points of the match, culminating with a stellar finish from sophomore Tiara White (Sinton, Texas) to put things on ice at 26-24.

Both Morgan Pearson (Pensacola, Fla.) and White had season highs with 17 kills apiece to pace a potent Scottie attack. White also posted a team-high 15 kills in the opener against LaGrange. The Scotties crushed their season-best attack percentage by hitting at a .286 clip for the match. First-year Makayla Nash (San Francisco, Calif.) was the leading back-line defender for Agnes Scott with 20 digs.

Senior Bella Kammerer (Mt. Sterling, Ky.) returned from a one-match hiatus to post a career-high 49 assists. Kammerer also became the first Scottie in the last decade to record 1,000 assists and 1,000 digs for a career, breaking the 1,000-assist mark toward the end of the fourth set.

The Scotties will await official announcement on their placement in the USA South tournament.
