The McDowell Lady Titans have been doing a solid job this season showing a little killer instinct.

That was the case again on the road Wednesday night as McDowell swept the Freedom Lady Patriots in three games.

In all three games, McDowell (5-2 overall, 2-1 Northwestern 3A/4A Conference) secured wins without much fanfare. The Lady Titans took the first game by a 25-16 margin and then won a 25-13 rout in the second. Ahead by two games, the team made sure that Freedom could not gain any momentum by winning the third game 25-15 to take the match.

McDowell, with the victory, has now won five of its last six contests. The team also keeps its perfect record on the road, having won three straight away from home.

Outside hitter Makenna Parkins and Jada Cannon had 10 kills each and Jessica Cannon added five kills. Daisy Rice and Emily Register had three kills each at inside hitter.

Elaina Rampey recorded 10 digs with Clementine Miller and Katie Baker making six digs each.

Lucy Hames (21 assists, 8 digs) continued to provide the team with solid production defensively and setting up the outside hitters.

McDowell returns home on Monday against conference leader Hickory.
