DOVER, Del. – Freshmen Tania Rounds and Tionne Graves-Brown combined for 16 kills on just 26 swings to lead the Wesley College volleyball team to a straight set (25-18, 25-12, 25-18) victory over Rosemont on Thursday night at Wentworth Gymnasium. The Wolverines now stand at 7-2 while the Ravens fall to 0-5.
Rounds led all players with nine kills with just one error on 16 swings for a .500 hitting percentage to go with a block while Graves-Brown recorded seven kills on ten swings (.600) along with six aces and seven digs to register a match-high 13.0 points.
Kadijah Doughty also had a solid day on both sides of the ball with five kills while hitting .182 and blocking a team-high three shots. Doughty was the catalyst to a defense that held the Ravens to a -.015 hitting percentage with 14 errors and just 13 kills.
Wesley scored the final six points of the opening set to win it, as Doughty blocked a pair of hits and a kill by Jessica Tynes finished it. The Wolverines then carried that momentum into set two, opening the frame on a 6-1 run. Following a service error, Wesley than ran off eight straight points to take a 14-2 lead and cruise to a two-set lead.
Rosemont led early in the third set but Wesley rallied for a 11-6 deficit to tie the score at 13 and then it was all she wrote with Marshall earning kills from the back row on two of the decider's last three points.
The Wolverines will now travel to take on Lincoln (Pa.) on Tuesday, September 16 at 6 pm.
