ATHENS, Tn. –  Tennessee Wesleyan University volleyball recorded their first home win of the season Thursday in a victory over Fisk University.  The Lady Bulldogs defeated Fisk 3-1 in four sets (25-16, 25-20, 19-25, 27-25).


Play in the first set was back-and-forth resulting in a tie at 13- all. The Lady bulldogs finally were able to pull away after a 12-1 stretch that secured a 25-14 win.

Although TWU never trailed in the second set, Fisk lingered closely throughout the contest, going on a 5-1 run late in the set. Despite Fisk's efforts, the Lady Bulldogs took their second win of the match 25-20.

Fisk never trailed in the third set. After an early 6-2 surge by the Fisk Bulldogs, Coach Ashley Harris called a timeout to rally her squad. Unfortunately, the Lady Bulldogs were unsuccessful, dropping the set 19-25.

The final set of the contest featured six ties. The Lady Bulldogs took their first lead of the set at 16-15, but Fisk quickly reclaimed the lead just two points after. The hard-fought battle was finally decided after TWU surged from a three-point deficit to earn the set win 27-25 and match victory 3-1.

Sydney Ritten and Miyah Woodard helped lead the TWU attack with 8 kills each. Gabi Catt had 18 assists while Elizabeth Houk collected 12 digs in the contest.
