ROME -- In the first home match in the Winthrop-King Centre for 2012 the Lady Hawks got back on their winning ways with a quick dispatching of visiting Piedmont, 3-0.
Shorter (7-1, 1-1 Gulf South) came out aggressive and sent the Lady Lions home in a match that was slightly over an hour. The match was played on the same day the NCCAA released their newest standings that show the Lady Hawks at the top of the list as the No. 1 team in the Burbridge Power Rating.
The attack game was strong for Shorter as the team hit .284 for the match that included Crook (.444) and Anna Graham (.333) as the leaders of the team.
Megan Pepe served up five aces, while Piedmont was only able to tally two as a team.
When asked about the crowd, head coach Jon Moseley had the following… "The crowd was awesome. The level of support we receive from the student body and the energy they provide amazes us."
With the news on being the No. 1 team in the NCCAA… "Everyone is contributing and the success has come from being a true team and a testament to our depth. We feel honored to be involved with the National Christian College Athletic Association as it is a great fit for us as we have many Christian leaders on our roster."
Next up, West Alabama (8-3, 2-1 Gulf South) will come to town on Friday for a 7 pm start time on the court of the Winthrop-King Centre.
