Panthers rebound with 3-0 win against Martin Methodist

PULASKI, Tenn.—The Birmingham-Southern volleyball team snapped a four-match losing streak with a 3-0 win against Martin Methodist, Tuesday evening.

The Panthers now stand at 13-16 on the season. BSC won by the scores of 25-18, 25-22, and 25-21.

Junior Shelby Moore led with a match-high nine kills and hit .600, and also led with five blocks. Junior Presley Dickson led with a match-high 15 digs, and junior setter Lauren Reibe also recorded a match-high 27 assists.

"This was certainly one of the most courageous performances our team has had all season long," Head Coach Judy Green said. "Our team has improved so much since we last played Martin Methodist. We served the ball as well as I have seen us serve this season and we kept their big hitters from get into a rhythm. Saying I am proud of our effort tonight is an understatement after what we have been through as a team over the last week. Our energy was so great tonight and we were determined to find a way to win on the road."

Green, as well as Reibe, have been absent from the team for the past two matches after being out of town due to family emergencies, but they both were able to return for today's match.

BSC travels to Atlanta this weekend for the SCAC East Inter-pod, hosted by Oglethorpe, taking on Centre and Sewanee on Saturday and the host Stormy Petrels on Sunday.
