ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. - The NC Wesleyan College Volleyball team could not keep pace with the terrific attacking from the Angels of Meredith College (N.C.) on Wednesday as MC would go on to sweep the Bishops 3-0, (25-16, 25-15, 25-14) at Everett Gym.

Meredith totaled 14 kills in each set hitting .294, .375, and .414 apiece while the Bishops managed just 24 kills throughout.

Sophomore right side Sydney Barnwell led Wesleyan with 8 kills hitting .238 with a block while junior OH Callie Cline added 6 kills and 10 digs on a night she was honored for achieving her 1,000th career dig over the weekend. She now has 1,026 digs in her career.

Senior setter Haileigh Riesenbeck led with 16 assists and an ace while junior libero Sam Butensky played well corraling 21 digs and an ace.

Meredith improves to 9-6 overall and 3-1 in the conference while Wesleyan falls to 6-10 and 1-3. The Bishops are next in action on Thursday night at 7 PM when they host non-conference foe Johnson & Wales (NC) on Dig for a Cure Pink night.
