Lions Volleyball Sweeps Lees-McRae

FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga. - After a tough conference loss last night, the women's volleyball team bounced back with a three set sweep over Lees-McRae College. 

The Lions dominated in every statistical category, hitting .240 compared to the Bobcats .158. Senior Julie de Blanck had her season high in kills with a staggering 17 from the middle. Junior Aysha Avery tallied 22 of the total 74 digs for the night. 

The Lions had a relatively smooth run to the finish aside from being challenged in the third set. With a lackluster performance early on, Emmanuel found themselves facing a 17-9 deficit. In a stunning comeback, the Lions put up sixteen points to the Bobcats six to take the victory 25-23.

Next up for the Lions is Augusta University on Tuesday, October 2nd.
