Davidson Volleyball Seniors (L-R): Emily Kane, Josie Treadwell, Elise Edman, and Emma McLaughlin

 

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.

Lots of smiles for the ‘Cats in their 3-1 win over George Mason.

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.

Sydney Champaigne finished with 47 assists, and Remi Lehnertz had a team-best 12 digs.

Prior to the match, the Wildcats honored the four members of the 2020 class: Elise Edman, Emily Kane, Emma McLaughlin and Josie Treadwell.
