Lady Cougars beat FVSU for 3rd time this season

COLUMBUS, Ga. – The Columbus State women's volleyball team continued its domination of Fort Valley State on Wednesday night. For the third time this season, the Lady Cougars defeated the Lady Wildcats 3-0. CSU improves to an overall mark of 11-6 while FVSU falls to 5-20. 

CSU posted a .636 attack percentage (15 kills, one error, 22 attempts) and held FVSU to -.071 (two kills, three errors, 14 attempts) in the first game to sail out to a 25-10 win. In the second set, sophomore outside hitter McKenzie Bragg was a perfect 4-for-4 on the attack to lead the Lady Cougars to a 25-15 win. Columbus State capped the victory with a 25-16 third game win in which freshman outside hitter Mary McCarty made five kills.

"It was exciting to have a lineup of exclusively freshmen be able to come out and cinch a three game shutout," said head coach Casey Cornett.

McCarty tied her season best 11 kills to lead CSU's offense. Freshman middle blocker Kylie Beaubien had a career-high nine kills and tied her season best of four service aces. Freshman setter Ivana Kazic posted 23 assists and four aces, while freshman libero Taylor Ray led the back court defense for Columbus State with nine digs.

Junior outside hitter Briana Shepherd led FVSU's offense with four kills. Junior defensive specialist Megan Archie had a team-high seven digs for the Lady Wildcats.

Columbus State gets back into Peach Belt Conference action this weekend at home in the Lumpkin Center. The Lady Cougars host Francis Marion at 7:00 p.m. on Friday and UNC Pembroke on Saturday with a 2:00 p.m. start.
