Rams Stifled in a Three-Set Loss at Shaw

RALEIGH, NC – The Winston-Salem State Rams (13-9, 10-4 CIAA) could not quite get their offense in gear when the team took a three-set road loss to the Shaw Lady Bears (13-8, 13-1 CIAA), Tuesday evening. The Rams kept up their attacks, but the team could not put them away against the tough Shaw defense, Tuesday.

As a team, the Rams were held in check against the Lady Bears. The Rams finished the match with just 20 kills to go along with 27 attack errors in the match. WSSU senior outside hitter Miranda Taylor led the way for the Rams with four kills in the match. Defensively, sophomore libero Myra Wallace added 12 digs while Taylor added 11 and Jackson added 10 digs.

The Rams opened the set with any impressive first set, but the team allowed the Lady Bears to pull away. After taking a 25-20 loss in the opening set, the Rams took a 25-17 loss in the second set and a 25-12 loss in the third set.

With the loss, the Rams fall to 13-9 overall and 10-4 in Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) play. The team also falls to 5-4 in CIAA Southern Division play.
