Volleyball Falls to Frostburg in Annual Pink Match

DOVER, Del. – Wesley College's volleyball team fell to Capital Athletic Conference rival Frostburg State, 3-0 (25-10, 25-15, 25-20) at Wentworth Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon in the Wolverines' Pink Match.  The loss drops Wesley to 11-11 overall and 1-4 in the CAC while the Bobcats move to 12-14 on the year and 2-3 in league play.

Kadijah Doughty led Wesley with 8.0 points, recording six kills on 11 swings for a .455 hitting percentage while also matching Tania Rounds for a team-high four blocks.  Rounds also had four kills as Tionne Graves-Brown added five and both Charlene Coyne and Codi Ziolkowski chipped in with three each.

Meghan Marshall led the team with seven kills and Rachel Hausler added six on the defensive end.

The teams traded points in the early stages of the first set but after a kill by Coyne tied the set at four; the Bobcats scored six-straight points and ran away with the frame.  Frostburg took the second set in similar fashion after Wesley cut the deficit to 13-12 but the Bobcats went on a 4-0 run and then closed the frame with eight of the last 11 points.

Wesley's best chance to take a set was in the decider as the Navy & White held an 18-16 lead after Rounds delivered with a kill and followed up with a block along with Doughty.  The two-point lead prompted a FSU timeout and the Bobcats responded with four-straight points and the Wolverines could not match.

Wesley will now go on the road for three-straight CAC road matches, starting with Mary Washington on October 22 at 7 pm.
