Danville, Va. – The Peace Pacers volleyball squad earned their first win tonight defeating USA South foe Averett University 3-1 on the road. First-year outside hitter Taylor Johnson earned 13 kills (.400) to lead PC to victory. This marks the first win versus the Cougars since before joining the league in 2003.
The opponents traded the first 15 points of the match before Johnson put down a kill to ignite a 5-0 Peace run, including two service aces from Johnson and a kill from sophomore middle Lexi Parker. Three more Pacer kills and one of Johnson’s three blocks gave PC the eventual 1-0 match lead on a 25-18 score.
AU battled to take the clear 25-13 win in set two.
First-year local Lauren Naugle, who led Peace with 15 digs and four service aces, served Peace to an early 6-1 lead in set three. Averett tied Peace at 10-10 on a 5-0 run. PC’s first-year libero Melissa Cubillos put her team back on top 19-17 serving three straight, including one of her two aces. A block from Parker helped setter Olivia Griffin serve for the 25-22 win.
Griffin maintained the serve into the final set and with the help of four Pacer kills, gave her team an early five-point advantage that would carry to a 25-17 finish.
Parker and veteran outside Amber Lowe notched seven kills apiece for the visitors. Cubillos tallied 12 digs and Griffin topped all with 32 assists on the night.
Averett’s Hillary Metheny led all with 14 kills and Aaron Paige notched a match-high 24 digs.
Peace hosts Salem College tomorrow night in the home opener. First serve is slated for 7:00 pm in the Hermann Center.
