Michelle Evans posted eight kills and 10 digs and Ashton Perez collected 21 assists, but Cumberland was unable to finish the end of sets and dropped a 3-0 decision at Campbellsville University on Thursday night in Campbellsville, Ky.

The Bulldogs (11-10, 1-6 Mid-South) dropped their sixth straight match overall, all in conference play, despite staying close in all three sets. CU committed 37 total errors in the loss, including 16 hitting errors, eight service miscues and eight reception errors.

The first set went back-and-forth at the beginning, with kills from Danielle Girardeau and Evans putting Cumberland ahead, 10-0, but the Tigers (7-15, 3-4) put together a 10-2 spurt to pull away highlighted by three service aces from Krista Mihelsone and two kills by Aleksandra Popovic. CU never got closer than 19-15 the rest of the way and Jade Nelson’s final kill gave the home team a 25-18 opening set.

The second set started much the same as the first, with kills from Rylee Butler, Perez and Evans giving CU a 9-8 edge, but Campbellsville ran off six straight points behind a block from Nelson, a kill from Jana Kortas and three Bulldog errors.

Cumberland answered with four straight points, including two service aces by Evans and a kill from Butler, pulling within 15-13, and kills by Evans and Butler made it 21-20 for the Tigers. Campbellsville posted four straight points to end the set, though, with kills from Jackie Schweiger and Kortas and a service ace by Marcella Compeau finishing off the 25-20 win.

The Tigers started quickly in the third set, taking 5-1 and 10-5 leads before the Bulldogs rallied. Two kills from Evans and three Campbellsville errors helped CU close the gap to 13-11 and kills by Evans and Abby Shaw made it 17-15 as well, but two kills from Rachel DeCoursey pushed the Tigers lead back to four. Nelson and Kortas finished off the match with kills in a 25-20 final set.

Cumberland takes a slight break from Mid-South action next week, traveling to Tennessee Temple on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. match before heading to the University of Pikeville on October 11.

Butler’s 10 kills pace another CU win

Posted on 05 September 2014 by Allen


Rylee Butler and Abby Shaw each posted 10 kills and Cumberland took advantage of 26 errors by the University of Pikeville in a 3-0 volleyball victory Thursday night at the Dallas Floyd Recreation Center.

Butler and Shaw combined for the 20 kills and just three errors in 51 total attacks. The Bulldogs (5-0) were never able to pull away in the match until the end of each set.

Cumberland pulled out a 25-21 opening stanza in a set that featured nine ties. CU fell behind 5-1 to begin the set before kills from Shaw and Michelle Evans and a pair of Pikeville errors evened the score. UPike retook the lead at 12-10 thanks to a kill by Connor Cook and two Bulldog errors, but Danielle Girardeau’s kill evened the score at 13.

CU opened a 20-16 advantage behind kills from Shaw, Butler and Amanda Worrell only to see the Bears even the match again behind kills by Chelsea Staples, Haley Esquivel and Sydney Morris. Pikeville committed three straight errors before a kill by Girardeau and then a block from Girardeau and Evans provided the final points of the set.

The second set started much the same as the first with five ties in the first 14 points, but four straight UPike errors opened the door for the Bulldogs to take the lead for good. Shawn put together four kills in an eight-point span for a 16-11 advantage before Butler and Girardeau added spikes as well. Setter Ashton Perez’s over-the-shoulder kill that landed just inside the line near the net made it 21-14 CU, forcing a timeout by the visitors.

Butler, Shaw and Evans added kills after the timeout and Butler collected the final kill in a 25-18 win in the set.

The teams went back-and-forth again at the beginning of the third set before a pair of kills from Butler and three Pikeville errors gave CU an 11-9 edge. Worrell and Shaw contributed kills in the middle of the set and Butler put up two more as well for an 18-14 lead.

That was as close as the Bears would get the rest of the way, with Girardeau and Shaw posting kills before a final error by UPike in a 25-21 win.

Perez finished with 25 assists while Shaw added 13 digs and Karli Collins registered 14 digs. Girardeau had four kills and four block assists while Evans recorded five kills for the Bulldogs, who head to the Sewanee Invitational on Friday and Saturday, taking on Fisk University, Point University and Oglethorpe University.
