DUE WEST, S.C. -- Senior middle hitter Racey Bartley recorded 16 kills with no errors in 23 attempts as Mount Olive College pounded out a 25-21, 25-12, 25-22 victory over Erskine in a Conference Carolinas women's volleyball match.

The match marked the first meeting between the two teams in 13 years. Erskine (8-12 overall, 6-5 CC) reinstated women's volleyball this year after the sport was discontinued at the school following the 1996 season.

Mount Olive recorded 46 digs as a team.
