        The St. Catharine College volleyball season came to and end Saturday at the Frankfort Convention Center. Adam Stevenson, who was named coach of the year a day earlier, saw his team fall to Campbellsville 3-1 in the Mid-South Conference quarterfinals.

        The Patriots, who finished the season 26-10,1ost the match 20-25, 16-25, 25-17, 25-13. They ended the year with 20 more wins than in Stevenson’s 2010 inaugural season when they went 6-33.

        St. Catharine overcame a 17-10 deficit in the first set to cut the lead to 19-17 before falling 25-20. They could never gain momentum in losing the second set but seemed to be on an upswing after taking the third set 25-17. But they fell behind in the fourth set 6-2 and never got closer than four points as the Tigers closed out the match with the 25-13 win.

        Allie Southard, a freshman, paced the Patriots with 11 kills in the match and had a lofty hitting percentage of .409. Porsha Ellison had nine kills and Casey Stone eight but the Patriots hit just .140 as a team. Freshman Charlotte Jewell led the Patriots in digs with 17. Stone and mandy Gray had 14 digs each.

        Campbellsville, 20-13, moved on to play Georgetown later Saturday when they fell 3-2 after winning the first two sets. Georgetown then lost to Lindsey Wilson 3-1 Sunday in the championship match.
