In its most important match of the year, the North Central volleyball team was extended to four sets before upending visiting Region 4-AA rival Buford in Tuesday night’s “Dig Pink” match played at the Castle.

The match itself served as the centerpiece of the program’s effort to help eradicate breast cancer with proceeds from the evening benefitting the Side-Out Foundation which helps with the promotion, awareness and elimination of the deadly disease.

The Lady Knights took the first set, 25-15, before falling in the second, 25-23. Andy Johnson’s charges stormed back in the third and fourth sets, winning 25-16 and 25-17, respectively, to avoid a fifth set tie-breaker.

The victory gave NC a 14-2 overall record and a 9-1 mark in 4-AA play.

Bree Lee had a double-double with 20 digs and 16 kills while adding three aces and a block. Deja Linton had 10 kills, three digs and a block with Abigail Durant having 10 digs to go along with nine kills.

Logan Coates had a 40-assist, nine-dig and two-kill match. Alexis Hackworth had 19 digs, six kills and an assist. Kelsie Gardner had 15 digs, an assist and an ace.

On Monday, the Lady Knights went into the Rock Hill region and came away with a pair of victories.

North Central knocked off 4A entry South Pointe, 25-18 and 25-12, in the opening match before taking down Westminster-Catawba in the finale, 25-10 and 25-16.
