Gold Nuggets defeat Faulkner State in exhibition
September 1, 2010

     NEW ORLEANS — Sierra Lyons had 15 kills, and Erin Vincent had nine kills and seven digs Wednesday to lead Xavier University of Louisiana to a 25-16, 25-20, 16-25, 25-16 women's volleyball exhibition victory against Faulkner State Community College at The Barn.
     Celeste Poe had 16 digs, Patrice Hightower 13 and Iva Bobkova 12 for the Gold Nuggets. Kia Kaufman served three aces, and Allison Dawson had five blocks.
     Julia Bolton led Faulkner State (3-2) with seven kills, and Kahlie Tomplait had 16 digs.
     Xavier scored 14 of the first 18 points in the first set. A Faulkner State service error, one of six by the Lady Sun Chiefs in the second set, put Xavier ahead to stay 15-14.
     "I was a little concerned about how we would play after opening weekend," said Xavier Coach Al'lisa Hale, whose team on Saturday lost to Belhaven and defeated Alabama State. "But we stepped it up tonight and played better."
     Xavier's next match will start at 2 p.m. Saturday at Judson (Ala.) — the Nuggets' first road match of the season.
