The Piedmont volleyball team cruised in conference play yet again with a 3-1 win over Agnes Scott Wednesday on the road.

The Lions now move to 4-0 in conference play set for a weekend showdown against the only other undefeated league team, Covenant, in a tri-match at LaGrange.

Piedmont totaled 52 kills to the Scotties 32 as Jenna Ash led all competitors with 12 kills. Reigning CCS Player of the Week Katie Hubbard also was in double digits with 10 kills.

Kaylee Ashcraft, a two-time CCS Rookie of the week, added five more aces in the contest as she leads the league and sits inside the top-10 nationally in aces this season.

Vanessa Manzo added four aces while leading the team with 25 assists.

The Lions appeared to be in control early with a 25-8 win in the opening set and held the Scotties to just 14 in the second set. The third set, however, saw trouble brewing for Piedmont.

Piedmont led 23-19 late in the third needing just two points to close out the straight-sets victory, but the Scotties rallied to take a 25-24 lead, and from then on it was nearly point-for-point.

Agnes Scott took two to lead 29-28, but a service error gave Piedmont a point to tie it at 29. The Scotties closed it out with two straight to take the marathon set, but it was too much to ask for a complete comeback as Piedmont closed it out with a convincing fourth set win 25-10.

Up next, the Lions will have their first CCS tri-match of the season at LaGrange taking on the Panthers and Covenant.

— After a tightly contested third set that saw ASC take it in extra points, Piedmont left no doubt in the fourth set claiming a 25-10 victory.

— Jenna Ash led Piedmont with 12 kills in the contest while adding four aces.
— Taylor Herrmann led the Lions with her 20 digs.
