Wildcat Volleyball Falls to La Salle Sunday
DAVIDSON — Two matches into the Atlantic 10 season, the Davidson volleyball team is 1-1 in conference play, with the most recent result being a 3-0 loss to La Salle Sunday afternoon in Belk Arena.
The Wildcats defeated Duquesne 3-1 Friday, and Davidson coach Chris Willissaid his team learned a lot about itself in the first weekend of league play.
“We played well against Duquesne, and we needed to be better against La Salle,” he said. “La Salle is a very good team in the conference. They’ve raised their ability to compete in the last three years. That’s somebody we have to shoot for.”
On Sunday, the Explorers survived a tight first set, 25-23, as both teams hit over the .300 mark. La Salle then won the second set 25-14 and the third 25-17.
“I give full credit to La Salle for playing a great match,” said Willis. “We need to be performing a lot more efficiently in scoring points and on first contacts with serve receives and defense. We just need to execute at a higher level.”
Libero Josie Treadwell had nine digs and surpassed the 1,000 dig mark for her career (1,005).
Davidson is back in action Friday, Oct. 4 against VCU in Belk Arena, beginning at 6 p.m.
