Salisbury, NC - The Johnson & Wales University volleyball team claimed a five-set victory over NCAA D2 opponent Livingstone College on Saturday, winning 25-22, 18-25, 26-24, 24-26, 15-12.
The Wildcats (4-5) were led by Johmillet Berrios with 11 kills while Toniya Scott added 10 of her own. Victoria Hicklin, taking advantage of an increased workload, added seven kills for a well-balanced Johnson & Wales attack.
"This is what this team is capable of," said head coach Callie Phillips. "We came together and fought hard for this win against a tough opponent. We made a few lineup changes today, and the team responded very well. I'm happy with our performance today."
Johnson & Wales is scheduled to resume play on Tuesday at another NCAA D2 opponent, local rival Johnson C. Smith. Play is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
