Volleyball Takes Two From High-Pitched Rebels

Coming off a big win against Lutheran North on Tuesday, the Cats looked to extend their winning streak to three games against Notre Dame Wednesday night. The Cats never fell behind in the match winning 25-16 the first game and the 25-17 the second. However, where skill lacked, Cape made up for it with volume on the bench.

Westminster opened up the game with a 10-3 run and never looked back. The scoring began with a Madeline Williams (Sophomore) facial, highlighted by some key defensive plays by Macy Catlett (Senior), and Elisabeth Sems (Junior), kills. The deficit was too great for the loud Rebels to ever recover.  

Sophomore Hilary Hightower led the team in kills with 8, closely followed by Sems who tallied 7.  Both Williams sisters dominated offensivley and provided big time blocks at the net.

With the absence of Lane Penberthy (Senior), due to pregame sickness, coach Cumbee adjusted the rotation from a 6-2 to a 5-1 which had Avery Englemyer (Sophomore) filling in as setter. The move paid off and as the Cats cruised to take both sets.
