BOUMA AND BAILEY LEAD TROJANS IN SWEEP OF HUNTINGTON

 

HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Senior Rachel Bouma connected on 12 kills while junior Addy Bailey added ten terminations to lead the Taylor volleyball team to a sweep of Huntington in Crossroads League action on Wednesday night.

 

Bouma tallied 12 kills and had no hitting errors in 22 attacks for a .545 hitting percentage to pace the TU offense. Bailey added ten kills and just two hitting errors in 29 attempts as the Trojans tallied a .262 hitting percentage for the contest with 42 kills and ten errors in 122 attacks.

 

Taylor (18-14, 8-7 CL) weathered a late Huntington rally in the opening set to hold on for a 25-23 victory in set one. The Trojans trailed 6-3 in the second set but took control of the set with a 13-2 run to move ahead by a 16-8 margin before ultimately taking the set 25-14.

 

The Trojans once again faced a deficit in the third set as Huntington (12-17, 6-8 CL) built a 12-7 advantage but a Becca Gerig ace sparked a TU rally as the Trojans stormed back to tie the set at 14-14. Huntington stemmed the tide but the Trojans broke a 19-19 deadlock by scoring six of the set’s final nine points to secure the sweep with a 25-22 win in the third set.

 

Junior Haley Harrell orchestrated the Taylor attack with 35 assists and added 13 digs for the TU defensive effort. Sophomore Samantha Korn tallied a team-high 21 digs while Gerig added 13 digs and Jamie Scherb finished with 11 digs for TU.

 

With the victory the Trojans moved one-and-a-half games ahead of Huntington and Saint Francis for fourth place in the Crossroads League standings with just three regular season Crossroads League contests remaining.

 

Taylor will return to action at home on Saturday when the Trojans host Mount Vernon Nazarene at 5:00 pm. The Trojans will honor their four seniors prior to the opening serve on Saturday as part of Senior Day festivities.
