The West Virginia Wesleyan Volleyball team soared past the Golden Eagles of Charleston Friday evening as they continued their perfect start to their Mountain East Conference season. The Bobcats were able to pull off the clean sweep of the Golden Eagles 3-0.
The University of Charleston (9-4, 3-2) started off strong holding a slight edge throughout the first game drawing close to the victory, however the Bobcats (5-12, 3-0) would storm back after being down set point 24-20, squaring the game at 24 all. Then with some clutch serving from Aspen Weber the Bobcats were able to finish off Charleston win the next two points earning the win.
In the second set, seniors Camblin Leonard and Korin Wengryn along with junior Erin Bond would control much of the net, sending Golden Eagle attacking attempts back to their side stretching out a cushion for the Lady Bobcats. Freshman Hannah Moore and junior Samantha Swann added some nifty attacks of their own helping complete a 2-0 start for the Bobcats.
With one game remaining to complete the sweep for the Bobcats turned to great defense and composure as freshman Katlyn Hoge displayed great agility maneuvering her way under several, what looked to be, sure Aces allowing the precise passing of senior Casey Pattyn and freshman Paula Nottingham to continue. The Bobcats, like in game two, jumped out to a lead, but several Golden Eagle attacks would land them back in a dog fight. With the game on the line the Bobcats were able to culminate the night with another close, 25-22 victory, thus, earning them the clean 3-0 sweep of Charleston.
With the victory, the Bobcats remain perfect in the MEC and will return to conference play next Tuesday when they travel to Glenville State College.
