Wesleyan swept the visiting Bates Bobcats, 3-0 (27-25, 25-20,25-23) in Cardinal head coach Gale Lackey’s (photo lower middle) final match as she is retiring at the end of the academic year. She has been coaching at Wesleyan since 1978. The Cardinals finished the 2014 campaign with a 13-10 overall record and a 3-7 record in NESCAC play. The victory was Coach Lackey’s 490th of her illustrious 30-year volleyball career to go along with 16 winning seasons, 21 NESCAC tournament bids and one NCAA tournament appearance in 2001. The opening set went down to the wire, as the Cardinals needed to score 27 to take out the Bobcats. After Wesleyan took a 4-0 lead Bates battled back to take a 6-4 lead. But the teams would then be tied seven times at 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 23, and 24. After Bates got a kill for a 25-24 advantage, the Cardinals bounced back to score three straight points and take the set 27-25. Sarah Small '18 ended the set with a kill.
