Lady Chants use another five-set rally to beat Camels

In a case of deja vu, the Coastal Carolina volleyball team once again came back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat another Big South Conference rival Campbell University, 3-2. The Chants now sit at 3-1 in the Big South while holding a 5-8 overall record. The Camels’ record fell to 0-3 in the BSC and 7-13 overall.

Freshman Gabriella Horvath once again led the way for the Chants with 21 kills and had just four errors while hitting .459 for the match. She added eight digs, a pair of blocks and a service ace. Fellow Hungarian and freshman Estzer Nagy chipped in 14 kills while having just two errors and hitting .444. Nagy also had four blocks.

Junior Kindra Bailey once again shut down the opposing hitters while picking up six blocks, nine kills and three service aces. Senior Jamie DiMaggio led the team with 22 digs while junior Sam Skryd added 12. Junior Lauren Alejo had a season-high 51 assists while adding three blocks.

The Chants hit .255 for the match including .424 in the third set which turned the match around for Coastal. The Camels hit just .187 and the Chants held them to just an .078 hitting percentage over the final three sets.

After falling in the first set 25-21 and the second set 25-23 the Chants once again turned the entire match around taking the third set in dominating fashion. Up 10-8 midway through the third set the Chants began a 12-3 run powered seven kills from Horvath to take an insurmountable 22-11 lead.  Just a few points later a kill by Bailey gave the Chants their first set win of the match 25-13.

The fourth set looked like it would be another dominating win by the Chants when Coastal jumped out to an 18-10 lead. An 11-5 run by the Camels cut the Chants’ lead to just two points at 23-21. A service error by the Camels gave the Chants their first set point of the period at 24-21. The Camels fought off one set point with a kill but Nagy came through on the next point to send the Chants to the fifth and deciding set, 25-22.

The fifth set was back-and-forth over the opening points but with the Chants up 11-10 a service error by Campbell gave Coastal a two-point lead and caused the Camels head coach to call a timeout. Heading out of the break the Chants rattled off two-straight points off a kill from Horvath and a service ace from Bailey to give Coastal its first match point of the day. The Camels fought off one match point but in fitting fashion Horvath ended the match with a kill giving Coastal its fourth fifth set victory over the past five matches.

Coastal has now played in eight five-set matches this season including the last five straight.

The Chanticleers will return to action this Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. as they travel to Lowcountry rival College of Charleston.
