MOUNT OLIVE -- Junior outside hitter Adam Miracle and frontline mate Alex Rivero pounded out 14 kills apiece, and Mount Olive concluded regular-season play with a 26-24, 26-28, 25-17, 25-20 triumph over Limestone (S.C.) College on senior day Saturday afternoon inside Kornegay Arena.

It was the final home match for three MOC seniors -- setter Jackson Metichecchia, middle blocker John Nunns and Alex Vazquez. Sophomore middle blocker Jack Tutty was also recognized for his Import Sports/AVCA national player-of-the-week award he received in early March.

Nunns cranked out 13 kills and served a match-high three aces in the four-set contest. Lukas Hoelzl contributed 11 kills, while Tutty supplied 10 and recorded three blocks. Metichecchia passed out 54 assists.

Libero Dan Arnold logged 10 digs defensively.

MOC (16-13 overall, 7-3 CC) travels to Limestone next Sunday for a semifinal-round game in the 2012 Conference Carolinas tournament. The Trojans are the two-time defending league champions.
