Despite a near triple-double by senior setter Kelli Carneal, Jacksonville defeated Stetson 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-17) in an Atlantic Sun Conference volleyball match Tuesday evening at the Edmunds Center.
Carneal finished with 11 kills, 13 assists, and nine digs for the Hatters (3-16, 0-3 A-Sun). Kayla Weller added 15 assists, Monique Russell picked up 12 digs, and Morgan Pautsch hit .833 (five kills and no errors on six attempts).
“We had a few bright spots, Kelli Carneal almost had a triple double, she did a lot of good things for us,” Stetson head coach Tim Loesch said. “Kaley Melville was a good spark, kept the team fighting hard, even when we got behind. Morgan Pautsch had a great day, unfortunately our setters couldn’t get her the ball more.
“Again, we only had three or four girls contributing, and the rest struggled a bit. Unfortunately we had a couple injuries and we are still trying to solidify the last couple spots, and hopefully we can do that soon.”
The Dolphins (3-13, 1-2 A-Sun) were led by Gabriela Roman who had 11 kills, and Taylor Nyquist who had 10 kills.
The Hatters will continue their three-game home stand with a pair of weekend matches at the Edmunds Center. Stetson will host USC Upstate at 7 p.m. on Friday and ETSU at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
