'Canes continue to win, keep lead over Hawks

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 by PETER CAR in Sports

It continues to be a season of highlights for Liberty's volleyball team, as the Hurricanes added another feather in their cap following a victory over Emmaus last week.

The Hurricanes pulled out a five game victory 21-25, 25-23, 19-25, 25-23, 15-10 over the Hornets to improve to 7-1 in the LVC heading into this week's action.

Liberty (9-2) pulled off a three-game sweep over Haverford on Monday night to start the week off as well, but the win over Emmaus (8-2, 4-2) was certainly something that head coach Neiad Ammary enjoyed.
