Lady Rams Fade Late in Five-Set Loss at Pfeiffer

MISENHEIMER, NC – The Winston-Salem State Lady Rams (11-10) gave it their all, but the team just could not overcome when they took a heartbreaking five-set loss to the Pfeiffer Falcons (6-14), Friday evening. The loss was an especially tough one as the team battled its way back from trailing 1-2 after the first three sets of the match. In the end, the Lady Rams took their fourth straight loss, 22-25, 25-22, 22-25, 25-15, and 12-15.

After trading 25-22 scores in the opening three sets of the match, the Lady Rams came back for a dominating 25-15 fourth-set victory to force a fifth set in the match. The team kept its effort going in the fifth set, tying the match 10-10. However, the Lady Rams fell victim to a late offensive drought with their only two remaining points coming from a Falcons attack error and a Pfeiffer bad set.

As a team, the Lady Rams had a solid effort with 40 kills in the match and 25 attack errors. The team also added a solid 45 digs as well. The team also benefitted from 18 total blocks (six solo). WSSU senior outside hitter Katelin Wensley led the way for the team with 15 kills in the match. Fellow senior Avoni Seymour added 11 kills. Senior libero Katelyn Sigala added 14 digs. Junior setter Kayla Brass added a double-double 30 kills and 10 digs.
