DURHAM, N.C. - Janeen Davis had ten kills and hit .421 as Bethune-Cookman won its third straight match with a 3-0 (25-12, 25-16,25-21) victory over North Carolina Central in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Southern Division match Sunday.
The senior also registered seven digs and a service as the Lady Cats (3-18 overall, 3-1 MEAC) wrapped up a two-game swing through the Tar Heel state.
Jennifer Jimenez led B-CU with nine digs.
North Carolina Central (3-18,1-2) took a 3-0 first set lead, but Gardner posted three aces in a four-point service run and Jimenez added a five-point service run that gave B-CU an 11-5 lead. The Lady Cats never gave up two consecutive points the rest of the set to take the early lead.
Davis and Lowe service runs helped B-CU pulled away from a 16-14 game in the second set.
Tied 15-15 in the third set, B-CU got an Armstrong kill and an Eagle attack error for a 17-15 lead and never trailed again.
The weekend sweep kept B-CU one game behind Florida A&M and South Carolina State for the division lead. The Lady Cats travel to Tallahassee to face the Rattlers this Friday as well as to Ft. Myers Tuesday for a non-conference game with Florida Gulf Coast.
