Jaguars win non-conference match on the road Saturday night

AUGUSTA, Ga. – After hosting the USC Aiken Pacers for the Pink Out match earlier in the day, the Jaguars traveled across town to Paine College and won a non-conference match in The HEAL Complex in three straight sets.

The Jags (14-9, 5-7 PBC) snapped a three-match losing streak with the win over the Paine Lions where Augusta posted a .460 attack percentage and held the Lions to a .134 mark. Six service aces sparked the Jaguar offense and Rachel Windle's 14 kills and Kali Boatwright's 12 anchored the scoring.

A 25-15 set-one win was the closest meeting of the night, with the Jaguars taking set two 25-11 and the final set three 25-10 for the win. Paine took a slight lead in set one and once in set three, but Augusta remained on top for the majority of the contest.

Sophomore Sadie Thurston recorded 38 assists, two aces, and four digs and Kailla Baptiste added nine kills and zero errors.

Augusta plays on the road for three-straight matches, starting with a trip to Columbus State on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 7:00 p.m.
