Women’s Volleyball Defeats Tuskegee in 3

Franklin Springs, GA - The Emmanuel College Women's Volleyball team made quick work of Tuskegee during their Tuesday night home match. 

After coming back from a weekend with two tough losses, the Lady Lions hoped to refocus their efforts on another victory. 

Both teams started out swinging making it a constant side out game. It wasn't until point 7 that the lions were able to pull away for the first time. A couple power kills by Julie de Blanck gave the lions some momentum and helped them close out the first set 25-18.
Set two started well for Emmanuel with 6 straight points before Tuskegee could side out due to an Emmanuel service error. Another 3 points for the Lions forced the Golden Tigers to use their last timeout of the set. After multiple kills from the Lions and errors on Tuskegee's part, Emmanuel comfortably finished the set 25-11.
The final set started better for Tuskegee as they were able to take the initial lead 9-4. An Emmanuel rally allowed the Lions to go on an 8 point streak to put them back on top. A combination of kills from Nicki Drumm and Kylah Maxwell-Brown were critical in Emmanuel's push to finish the set. The final scores were 25-18, 25-11, 25-??. The Lions were led by Erica Burnham with 8 kills and 3 aces and Julie de Blanck with 7 kills, 2 blocks and 5 aces.
The Lions continue action Friday Oct. 9 at Southern Wesleyan.
