from Andrew Wilson, with the Elon Sports Information Department
ELON, N.C. – After matches against Duke, Kansas, High Point, and UNCG were cancelled last week due to Hurricane Florence, Elon University volleyball has added a match to its schedule and now returns to the court Tuesday, Sept. 18, to host North Carolina. Elon will square off with the Tar Heels at 7 p.m. in Schar Center.
-Tuesday marks the eighth meeting between the two squads. The match is also the first since 1979 and the first since Elon moved to the NCAA Division I level.
-The Phoenix won both matches in 1972 as well as the first meeting in 1974, but the Tar Heels claimed the next four meetings and own a 4-3 lead in the series.

She added seven digs and three blocks to her totals as Elon posted a 3-1 decision.
-Isabella Seman set a career high with 17 digs, Kodi Garcia contributed 43 assists, and Maddie Jaudon added 10 digs in the win over the Eagles.
