St. Andrews Defeats UNC-G
By Meg Anderson
After an action-
packed hour and fifteen
minutes, the Lady Knights .
volleyball team rumbled
past UNC-G to claim the
number one position in
the Dixie Conference.
"The whole team did
exceptionally well,"
beamed coach Jo Ann
Williams. "They were
aggressive and took the
game to the other team.
Our hitting was right on
and we returned the ball
with incredible accuray."
The match against
UNC-G was one that was
long anticipated. The
women's team was second
in the conference because
of a loss to them early
in the season, and that
same loss also denied
them a position in the
national standings, in
which UNC-G was
sixteenth.
"Because of tonight's
victory, we are now
number one in the con
ference and we may well
be in the national stand
ings now," explained
Coach Williams.
The match began with
the Knights winning games
one and two 15-9 and 15-8
with what looked like
relative ease. The crowd
began to relax and enjoy
the match until the third
game when the women fell
to UNC-G 12-15. The in
tensity level was high in
the fourth game, St. An
drews fighting for a vic
tory and Greensboro
fighting for a tie which
would bring on game num
ber five. After ten min
utes of scoreless volley,
Lisa Stafford spiked the
ball for the first point
of the game and there
began the end for UNC-G.
"The women played to
their full potential to
night. The other side
never had a chance after
that first point. They
looked like this was game
number one, not game
four—they were that
revved up," one spectator
commented.
