The Lee University volleyball team made it three-straight Gulf South Conference (GSC) victories on Tuesday evening as they defeated the University of West Georgia, 3-0.

The Lady Flames complete the season sweep of the Wolves and move to 10-16 overall and 7-9 in conference play. The struggling West Georgia club falls to 5-20 on the year and just 2-14 in GSC action.

Lee opened up the match with a 25-23 win in the opening set. The Lady Flames took a commanding 2-0 lead with a 25-20 victory in set two before outlasting the home team 26-24 in the third and final set.


Coach Andrea Hudson's club have now won nine-straight sets over conference opponents after recording a pair of 3-0 victories this past weekend over Mississippi College and West Alabama.

Lauren Williams continued her string of solid play with 12 kills on a .579 hitting percentage. The senior has now recorded double-digit slams in three straight matches. Latrice Johnson added seven kills while Catherine Conley and Patty Orozco had six each.

Sadie Johnson (20 assists) and Haley Foote (18 assists) set the offensive in motion. Libero Stephanie Hernandez anchored the defense with 15 digs.

West Georgia was paced by Kendall Williams with nine kills. Amanda Miller and Drea Matthews pitched in eight slams each. Kayla Hartman led the team with 22 assists and Samantha Drane tallied 11 digs.

Lee will now prepare for their final road trip of the season as they battle GSC-frontrunner Shorter University on Friday night in Rome, Ga. First serve is slated for 7 p.m.
