Cats Beat George Mason 3-1 in Final Home Volleyball Match
DAVIDSON — Annalyse Kitzberger had a career-high 17 kills and Hattie Rodriguez matched her as the Davidson volleyball team topped George Mason 3-1 in Atlantic 10 action Sunday afternoon in Belk Arena.
Playing on Senior Day, the Wildcats (10-13, 5-5 A-10) won the first two sets 25-20 and 25-19 and closed out the win with a 25-20 victory in the fourth. The Patriots (4-19, 0-11) extended the match with a 25-21 win in the third set.
“It’s a good bounce-back win for us,” said Chris Willis, who recorded his 100th win as Davidson’s head coach. “I’m really happy for our seniors to go out with a win at home. And it puts us another step closer to reaching the A-10 tournament.”
Rodriguez, who had a career-high 22 kills against George Washington Friday night, hit .357 for the match. Kitzberger bumped her personal-best up by four kills and delivered double-digit numbers for the fourth straight match, and fellow outside hitter Alison Jennings added seven kills.
“I thought our pin-hitters carried us today,” said Willis.
In the middle, Madeline Wynn added 10 kills and hit .364.
Davidson will play its final four regular season matches on the road, beginning with a visit to Rhode Island on Friday, Nov. 8.
