GREENCASTLE, Ind. - Centre College's volleyball team opened up Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference East Division play Saturday by splitting matches with Sewanee and host Depauw.
The Colonels defeated Sewanee in three games, 30-16, 30-21 and 30-19. Their match with DePauw was a bigger test as Centre eventually lost in five games - 30-19, 21-30, 37-35, 22-30 and 8-15.
"DePauw is just a hard place to play," coach Stephanie Dragan said. "We played well. We came out on fire, but fizzled out toward the end."
Whitney Faust had 14 kills, three aces, five solo blocks and five assisted blocks in the game.
"Whitney just did a great job," Dragan said. "Her blocking gave us the momentum that we needed to take the games from them that we did."
