Bethune-Cookman goes back on the road for a pair of Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Southern Division matches against North Carolina A&T and North Carolina Central.
B-CU UPDATE: The Lady Cats trail Florida A&M by one match and North Carolina Central by a half-match after splitting their opening weekend matches in conference play. B-CU swept both the Eagles and Aggies in 2011.
STATS AND STUFF: Krysta Gardner is seventh in kills per set (3.16) and seventh in points per set (.369) in the MEAC in overall stats; in conference play, she's the co-leader in service aces with one per set. Other Lady Cats in the top ten for conference play: Jennifer Jimenez is fourth in digs per set (4.0), Aria Cormier fourth in blocks (1.12) per set and Monica Lowe tenth in assists (7.58).
KRYSTA KOUNTER (FORMERLY THE GARDNER GAUGE): With the quest for her 1,000th kill behind her, Gardner still has two milestones to chase. She needs 44 kills to pass Melissa Sander's 1,060 for the B-CU career lead and 21 service aces to break Javanne Johnson's career mark of 126.
ALSO TRACKING: Jimenez matched her career high of 25 digs in Friday's loss to South Carolina State and finished the weekend with a career total of 726, putting her within striking distance of Sanders' career total of 852.
ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA A&T: (0-20,0-1): The Aggies have been in three five-set matches this season, including last week's 3-2 loss to N.C. Central. Brookes Stamnes has a team-high 2.11 kills per set.
ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA CENTRAL: (3-16,1-0): One of the Eagles' victories is a 3-0 decision over Hampton, who beat B-CU 3-2 last month. Christine Anthony is averaging 3.48 kills per set.
NEXT UP: B-CU is on the road for the entire month of October, playing nine matches. A non-conference tilt at Florida Gulf Coast is Tuesday.
