Wolverines Outdueled by Bobcats

FROSTBURG, Md. - The Wesley College volleyball team took a tough loss to Capital Athletic Conference rival Frostburg State University on Saturday afternoon, falling 3-0 to the Bobcats. 

The Wesley squad nearly had the first game, holding a 22-21 lead after battling back from an 18-14 deficit, but the Bobcats rallied past the Wolverines. The Navy and White trailed again, facing set point at 24-22, but rallied to tie at 24-24 on a kill and a block by Tania Rounds. The Wolverines took a 27-26 lead on a Samantha Weber serve, but allowed three straight points giving the Bobcats a 29-27 first set win.

Losing the first set seemed to take the wind out of the Wesley sails, shifting momentum to the home team. In the final two sets, Wesley hit just .000 and .059 with 16 combined kills between the two sets. The Wolverines fell 25-13 and 25-15, giving Frostburg State the 3-0 win.

Tionne Graves-Brown led the team with nine kills and chipped in defensively with nine digs. Meghan Marshall had a team-high 13 digs while Beth Schlecker had 12 and 22 assists for a double-double. Rounds finished the match with four total blocks to lead Wesley in the category.

The Wolverines move to 11-11 on the season with a 1-5 record in conference play. They will face Washington Adventist University on Sunday afternoon to celebrate Senior Day. The team will honor seniors Meghan Marshall and Samantha Weber.
