CHARLESTON, S.C. - The UNC Asheville volleyball team picked up its fifth Big South Conference victory of the season on Saturday evening as the Bulldogs swept league foe Charleston Southern 3-0, winning 25-16, 25-19 and 25-11 at the CSU Fieldhouse.

Sophomore rightside hitter Anna Moore recorded a match-high 13 kills with Meredith Foster and Cindi Miller tallying 11 kills apiece. Libero Alex Stewart collected a match-high 18 digs and setter Hallie Morse collected 36 assists helping Asheville improve to 12-9 overall, with a 5-3 mark in the Big South.

The Buccaneers were led offensively by Wynter Davis who posted eight kills. Ashley Higginbothem tallied 12 digs and Amy Nokes posted 21 assists for CSU in the 3-0 defeat.
