Lady Chants lay a goose egg against visiting Gamecocks

The Coastal Carolina volleyball team fell 3-0 at home against in-state rival South Carolina. The match marked the first visit to Conway by the Gamecocks and also the final non-conference contest of the season for the Chanticleers.

The Chanticleers pushed the Gamecocks throughout the first set but South Carolina pulled out the late victory 25-22. The Gamecocks cruised to victories in the second and third sets 25-16 and 25-11.

Coastal was led by freshman Eszter Nagy who had nine kills, a dig and two block assists. Junior Kindra Bailey added six kills, a pair of service aces and two block assists. Junior Meghan Laffin and freshman Gabriella Horvath each added seven kills and a pair of block assists. The team hit for a .150 average and had four total blocks.

The Gamecocks were led by Juliette Thevenin who had 14 kills, 12 digs and a pair of blocks. Bethanie Thomas added 13 kills, five digs and a block assist. The Gamecocks hit for a .349 average and had seven total blocks.

The Chanticleers jumped out to the early lead in the first set taking a 7-3 lead. The Chants held onto the lead until a kill by Thevenin tied the set at 16. The set went back-and-forth from that point on until with the score tied at 22 the Gamecocks scored three-straight points off of a pair of kills and a service ace to take the 25-22 victory.

The second set started off much like the first as the Chants jumped out to a 5-3 lead but a 9-4 run by the Gamecocks switched the lead to their favor at 12-9. South Carolina then pulled away down the stretch to take a 25-16 second set win.

The third set was all South Carolina as the Gamecocks jumped out to a 10-4 lead and never looked back. The Chants cut the lead to five on two occasions but South Carolina was able to pull away and take a 25-13 victory.

Coastal will return to action this Friday at 7 p.m. as the Chants travel to Boiling Springs, N.C. to take on Gardner-Webb in Big South Conference action.
