CARROLLTON, Ga. - Head coach Jon Moseley and his 2018 West Georgia Wolves squad have been on a tear of late, and the streak extended to three-straight victories on Friday evening with a 3-0 win over the visiting Union Bulldogs at The Coliseum.
For the second-straight match, the Wolves had a hitting percentage above .240 as a team, led by junior setter Madi Fleming, who had 34 assists on the evening. McKenna Wharton was again at the top of the list for West Georgia, joined by fellow junior Faith Pearson, as the pair each had 11 kills in the victory. Senior libero Anna Metzler was all over the floor in the three-set match, averaging better than five digs per set with 16 on the night.
West Georgia jumped out to a 10-5 lead early in the opening set, then cruised to a 25-15 victory for a 1-0 lead in the match. The second set had a familiar tone, as the Wolves opened an early 10-6 lead, then again took a 25-15 victory to take a 2-0 advantage in the match heading to the third set. In the third, Moseley emptied his bench, and the Wolves held on to take a 27-25 victory and win in straight sets.
Notable: Fleming now has 1,467 career assists, and is tied with Teresa Paini (93-96) for seventh all-time in assists at West Georgia. If the Wolves continue to hit at their current pace, Fleming has the ability to move into the top-five in career assists at UWG this season.
Next Up: West Georgia will be off for a week before heading to northern Alabama to take on the Alabama Huntsville Chargers next Friday.
