BRISTOL, TENN. - The Lees-McRae College Bobcats men's volleyball
team swept King College, 3-0 (30-28, 30-25, 30-26) Tuesday
Led by Colin Kelly, who had 12 kills, the Bobcats quickly put away
King. Chad Mercado chipped in 10 kills and two aces, and Ryan
Black added eight kills and four block assists. Robert Ritchie had
seven kills and three block assists. Jeff Black had three solo
blocks, and Juan Ramirez passed out 36 assists.
"It was a match of streaks," head coach Jamie Petrik said. "At
times, we looked smooth, made some great triple blocks, and served
well. The best thing about the match is that we finished strong.
Games one and three were close, tied at 25 or 27, but we took care
of the ball. I thought Juan made some great setting decisions to
put us into a position to win."
Lees-McRae will return to the court to Friday, February 13th in the
Lees-McRae Mountain Classic at 7 p.m. against Warner Southern.
