The Orange volleyball team has cemented its status for second place in the Central Carolina Conference after sweeping Walter Williams 3-0 at Panthers Gymnasium on Tuesday night. As usual, a blend of seniors and freshman combined to help the Panthers to victory. Freshman Aubrey Jordan had a career-high eleven kills. Another freshman, Katie Silcott, switched between outside hitter and setter. She finished with 21 assists and six kills. Ellia Wimsatt had ten kills. Senior Erin Jordan-Cornell had five kills as the Panthers improved to 13-7, 7-1 in the CCC. Orange also rebounded following a disappointing loss to Jordan in Durham on Monday night, a team that the Panthers had swept last month. Now, Orange will get the rest of the week off. The Panthers were supposed to face Cedar Ridge with first place on the line in the CCC on Thursday night. But the game has been moved to October 12 because of Hurricane Ian. Orange will resume its season at East Chapel Hill on Monday night in a nonconfernce game. They will return home on Tuesday to face Person.
