Oct. 13 – BETHANY, W.Va. – Senior co-captain Carrie Talkington (Moundsville, W.Va./John Marshall) reached a career milestone Thursday night at Hummel Field House as she fueled the Bethany College volleyball team to a 3-0 win over Presidents’ Athletic Conference rival Waynesburg Yellow Jackets (8-12, 2-10 PAC).
The BC front line shined once again as they pounded down 35 kills throughout the match to aid the Bison in their victory. Recording 14 of these 35 kills was Talkington who, with the score tied 2-2 in the third set, blazed a ball by the Waynesburg defense and recorded her 1,000th career kill. Talkington is now the fourth Bison in history to reach this feat.
Despite the strong Bethany attack, Waynesburg continued to pick themselves up and continuously closed in on the Bison toward the end of each set. However, their confidence never wavered and the Green and White held strong, as they defeated the Yellow Jackets by scores of 25-22, 25-20, and 25-15.
