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.
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.
