With a lack of a quantity of matches, this recap goes back to yesterday as well. The EIVA, Conference Carolinas and Independent schools were the stars of the show, as (RV) Princeton was the lone team with some sort of ranking recognition on the docket. They were one of three sweeps in the time period, with Coker-Queens representing the tightest of the matches as it went down to the fifth-set.

March 26:

Sacred Heart Def. Erskine 3-0 (25-13, 25-19, 25-17)

The Sacred Heart serve and defense was magnificent in a sweep of Erskine as they notched an incredible 16 aces in three sets and held their opposition to a .000 hitting percentage. The low hitting marks were a product of the inability to serve receive by Erskine, but also give credit to Sacred Heart for aggressive serving along the way. A host came from Taylor Bloomquist, who had a match-best six individually. From there, a .291 day led by Rob Chatterton (eight kills, .889, two aces) was enough for the EIVA side to strike one up in the win column.

March 27:

Coker Def. Queens 3-2 (21-25, 25-23, 25-15, 20-25, 19-17)

Coker survived an errant match in the service game, as they won a thrilling five-set match with underdog Queens. In total, 27 serve errors almost did Coker in, but similar block numbers and a more terminal attack that hit .221 compared to .147 was the difference. Joao Victor Santos not only came up large in the waning moments of the match, but was a constant throughout as he recorded 19 kills on a .237 mark, 10 digs, five aces and three blocks. Two others on the team had 16 and 14 kills respectively, while just one player for Queens logged double-digit kills.

(RV) Princeton Def. Erskine 3-0 (25-21, 25-14, 25-21)

Princeton was the better bunch all around in the match, leading to their eighth victory in their last nine tries. They hit at a .347 clip compared to a .113 mark from Erskine and had more aces, blocks and digs. ust four kills, Princeton’s three-headed monster of George Huhmann (10 kills, .368), Parker Dixon (nine kills) and Junior Oboh (nine kills, .667, eight blocks) was enough for the Tigers to keep their hot streak rolling and sweep Erskine quickly.

King Def. North Greenville 3-0 (25-18, 25-20, 25-17)

Barton still leads the Conference Carolinas, but King is making it as difficult as possible on them toward the home stretch, as they remain within one in the loss column. The Tornado now just have one more to win before setting up a meeting with Barton to try and tie (or take the lead if the Bulldogs were upset beforehand) atop the league table. This matches’ success for King came from an advantage all around, mainly in offensive efficiency as they posted a .324 mark compared to a .013 for NGU. In terms of that offense, Jeff Sprayberry (13 kills, .241) and Kiel Bell (nine kills, .389) were the difference as King downed North Greenville in straight sets.
