Appalachian State University volleyball continued their winning streak on Friday night, beating Elon in three sets, featuring scores of 25-20, 25-23 and 25-12.

The first set would begin with a tied score at six before the Mountaineers (15-10, 6-5 SoCon) would scored four straight points to pull ahead. The Apps would not give up the lead, winning the first by a comfortable margin, 25-20.

The Phoenix (15-12, 6-5) would get the early 5-3 lead in the second set before Appalachian would tie the score at ten. The Mountaineers began to pull away, winning the second 22-18 with a timeout for Elon. The Phoenix returned from the break to score three straight points and tie the score 23-23. It would not be enough, as the Apps scored the next two points to take the second set 25-23.

Despite scoring the first point of the third set, the Phoenix would fall behind quickly with a score of 7-4. The Apps continued to find points, leading the set 16-8 and not slowing down. The Mountaineers would later score six straight points to take the third set in dominating fashion with a score of 25-12 to win the match 3-0.

The Black and Gold found impressive offensive performances from Emily Corrigan and Lindsey Sauls, recording 15 and 13 kills, respectively. Meghan Mahoney notched a match-high 25 digs, while Paige Brown added another match high of 38 assists.

The Mountaineers hit a dominating mark of .327, while limiting the Phoenix to hitting just .179 on the night. The Apps tallied six total team blocks, while Elon recorded four. Appalachian will return to action tomorrow when they travel to Greensboro, N.C. to take on UNCG at 7 p.m.
