October 05, 2011
Raleigh, NC-The Salem College volleyball team were barely unable to sweep the Peace Pacers for the first time in school history in a five-set loss. The two teams split the first four sets, before Peace was able to catch the fifth and final set (20-25, 25-22, 7-25, 25-18, 6-15). Randi Roppolo (Weeki Wachee, FL) led the Spirits with 5 kills and 13 digs. Salem falls to 2-13, while Peace improves to 7-13 on the season.
The Pacers shot out to an early lead in the first set, before Salem came back to win the next set in a close battle. Peace had a very strong third set, but the Spirits kept battling to take the fourth set before Peace finished off the match.
Ty Graham (Pink Hill, NC) had 5 kills and 5 block assists. Brittany Miller (Hays, NC) led the Spirits with an impressive 31 digs. Chelsea Jones (Glade Valley, NC) had 6 set assists in the match.
Salem returns to action on Friday and Saturday as they head to D.C. for the Gallaudet University Invitational.
