Eagles Stay Undefeated in the KIAC
Wilmore, KY---The Asbury College volleyball team made quick work of conference rival Berea on Monday night, downing the Mountaineers 3-0. The Eagles struggled early in both game one and game two before pulling away with game scores of 25-11, 25-16, 25-11.
Asbury (19-8, 6-0) was led by freshmen Lindsay Ibold with 11 kills and one solo block. Lauren Budde and Ellen Adkison each had seven kills. Sophomore Emily Andrews had 25 assists and two kills. Junior Kelsie Martin, who has seen a lot of action with Hannah Wheeler out with an injured back, led the team with 14 digs and a team-high three service aces.
The Eagles played without three regulars on Tuesday, senior Abby Andrews (back), sophomore Hannah Wheeler (back), and Christina Marye (illness).
Asbury improved their overall record to 57-5 all-time against Berea. The Eagles have one more KIAC match on November 8 against IU-East, Asbury's match against conference opponent Midway will not count in the conference standings as only one match against each conference team is counted each year. As of right now Asbury is in first place in the conference and will clinch the conference with another IU-East loss or by beating the Red Wolves in Richmond.
Asbury will head to Transylvania University on Saturday for a Tri-Match event. They return home Tuesday October 21st to host Centre College at 7pm.
