The Emory & Henry College Volleyball Team came up short this past week in a handful of matches.

E&H traveled to Maryville College last Thursday, losing 3-1 in a non-conference matchup. Junior right- side hitter Tori Holmberg lead the team with 13 kills and contributed eight digs and two blocks. Senior outside hitter Ali Singleton earned 11 kills and 10 digs for the double- double. Junior middle Rebecca Morehouse had nine kills and two blocks, while junior middle Megan Stitzer contributed five kills and four blocks.

On Saturday, the Wasps traveled to Knoxville, Tennessee for a tri-match

against Johnson University and Toccoa Falls College. During the Johnson University match, Junior right-side hitter Tori Holmberg led the team with nine kills. Senior outside hitter Ali Singleton dished out five kills and seven digs. Junior setter Sam McCauley had a double-double with 25 assists and 10 digs while sophomore libero Lauren Coolidge supplied an incredible team-high 19 digs. Junior defensive specialist Amethyst Crawford put up a team-best four aces to go along with four digs. During the Toccoa Falls College match, Tori Holmberg once again led the Wasps, pitching in 19 kills and adding 12 digs for a double-double. Holmberg also earned her 500th career kill. When asked about earning her 500th career kill, Holmberg said, “We came together together as a team before this last 10 game stretch and set personal and team goals. Personally I set goal to just go out on the court and do my thing by having fun. By doing that I received my 500th career kill.”

Ali Singleton ended the night with 10 kills and six digs. Junior middle Rebecca More- house had seven kills, five blocks and three aces, while junior middle Megan Stitzer chipped in three kills and two blocks. Sam McCauley dished out 40 assists and nearly had another double-double with nine digs. Lauren Coolidge dug out 26 digs, while Amethyst Crawford added 13 digs and two aces. E&H is hungry for a win, as they look to get back into the winning column in their upcoming game against West Virginia Tech Wednesday, October 17.
