The usual suspects stepped up as Orange volleyball bounced back from a disappointing five-set loss to East Chapel Hill.

The Panthers received big nights from senior co-captains Bailey Lucas and Carolina Compton to sweep Eastern Alamance 3-0 in Mebane on Monday night. The Panthers won on scores of 25-19, 25-15 and 25-14. Orange is now 3-0 on the road this season after wins at Jordan and Riverside last week.

Compton has two aces, 26 assists and four digs. Liz LaNier finished with three aces, nine kills, one block, two assists and two digs. Lucas came away with four aces, ten kills, twelve assists and two digs. Sophomore Emma Clements led Orange with ten digs, while Faith Foushee added nine.

In the season opening win against the Eagles, LaNier finished with ten kills against only one error.

Orange (4-1, 0-1 in the Big 8) returns to conference action tonight with its first conference game at Hillside since the early 2000s. The Panthers host archrival Cedar Ridge on Thursday night.
