Charlotte, N.C. - The USCAA #5 Johnson & Wales University volleyball team won its fourth straight contest on Thursday, holding off John Wesley University in four sets by the scores of 31-29, 26-24, 19-25, 25-23 at the Wildcat Center.
With the victory, Johnson & Wales has eclipsed the .500 mark for the first time this season.
"This is a very nice win for us," said head coach Callie Phillips. "John Wesley is a quality team, and we fought hard to earn this victory tonight. We are continuing to improve with each outing and are consistently implementing some skills to keep us playing at a high level. Our defense was outstanding tonight, and that made way for us to be aggressive on offense. We earned another team win tonight."
