Fowler Center was filled with overwhelming roars coming from the Juhan Gymnasium on Friday,

September 11 while Sewanee fans cheered their Tigers to victory. The women’s volleyball team was

focused and ready to win in the first match of the afternoon against Wesleyan University. The Tigers

pulled out 25-10, 25-6, and 25-9 against the Wolves, hitting .365, a season-high for the team, with 29

kills and only eight errors. This early afternoon win led to a four game winning streak for our Tigers this

season. Teammate Elizabeth Gill (C’18) believes the team’s success was awarded because the women

played as a team, rather than individuals. They also did not let an error ruin their performance in the

game, enabling the Tigers to prevent the Wolves from getting long runs against them. This season, the

team has been setting little goals that they work to achieve in each game, putting the women in a

competitive mindset and pushing them to have a better performance. The women keep the atmosphere

of the game positive by staying focused and communicating with each other. Teammate Diamond

Stewart (C’17) had a total of 22 kills and seven digs, teammate Caroline Montgomery (C’16) had 23 kills,

and teammate Walker Buxton (C’17) had 43 assists as the setter in the matches on Friday. Stewart (C’17)
