HARROGATE, Tenn. - After previously beating Lincoln Memorial earlier in the season, Newberry collapsed to give the Railsplitters the 3-0 sweep on the road. The Wolves tallied a cumulative 38 points in three sets.


Lincoln Memorial ambushed the Wolves early to take the 5-1 lead in the first set. A kill from Sidra Triplett closed the margin to three at 7-4, but the Railsplitters quickly pulled away to make it 16-10. The Wolves were only able to notch five more points before an attack error from Toni-Anne Whitlow ended the set 25-15.


Zoe Dinkins led the team with five kills while Taylor Garrison had 17 assists.


Eight errors committed from Newberry gave Lincoln Memorial the 25-14 win in the second set.


The Railsplitters had 19 blocks compared to seven from the Wolves. Newberry was also outnumbered in kills, assists, digs, and service aces.
