CHARLOTTE, N.C.- Brevard's Joy Oswalt contributed a career-high 14 kills in the Tornados match against Queens University on Friday night, but it wasn’t enough as BC fell to the Royals in straight sets at the Levine Center. The Royals took the match by scores of 25-19, 25-13, and 25-19.
Oswalt eclipsed her previous high of 11, which the senior reached twice last season, but no other Tornado had more than six kills. Oswalt posted a team-high .419 hitting percentage on the night as BC hit .239 as a team for the match.
Queen’s Keri Kemp also had 14 kills to lead the Royals, while Anna Gibbs and Meredith Jones also turned in double-figure kill totals. Gibbs had 12 kills and Jones added 11 as the Royals hit at a .416 clip for the night.
Sophomore Fatima Gharachorloo had a season-high 14 digs defensively for Brevard, which also represented a game-high. Tornados freshman Aleksandra Vrvilo finished with 11 digs.
The Tornados look to rebound on Saturday as they visit the Catawba Indians for a 5 p.m. match at Goodman Gym. The Royals, meanwhile, will look for their fourth straight win when they travel to Wingate on Tuesday.
