MOUNT OLIVE -- Mallory Peavler served a career-high six aces, Sam Mitchell recorded 21 kills and Anna-Marie Luft added 17 kills as Mount Olive defeated Barton 29-31, 30-19, 30-20, 30-28 in CVAC volleyball Wednesday at Kornegay Arena. The Trojans recorded 13 service aces, their second-highest single-match total of the season.

Mount Olive (6-9 overall, 5-6 CVAC) scored the first three points of game one as Joanie Werling recorded the first of her three aces. The Trojans led by as many as four points before Barton (6-14, 3-11) came back to lead 25-24. The Trojans regained the lead and had two game points after Heather Pope's kill gave Mount Olive a 29-27 lead. But after a side out saved one game point, Meaghan King served the final three points to give Barton game one.
