Macon, GA - Though they improved greatly over the course of Wednesday night's match, the Wesleyan College volleyball team could not overcome a stifling LaGrange offense that put down 39 kills and ultimately fell to the Panthers by a score of 3-0.

Notables:

  • Senior Malae Fiaseu led the team offensively and defensively, recording five of the Wolves eight kills in the match to go along with three solo blocks and four digs.
  • Freshman Hannah Straut recorded an assist on all eight of the Wolves kills. 

Quotable: 

"We came out slow in the first set but gained momentum as the match progressed and played our best in the third set," stated Wesleyan head coach Caroline Carlton. "Our blocking in the last two sets was the best its been all season with [Malae] Fiaseu and [Nadia] Hernandez dominating the net for us. Our serve receive passing improved tonight as well, led by [Alyssa] Whitford and [Peri] Staples."

"We played a type of volleyball that I haven't seen from us yet this season. During our third set, we were firing on all cylinders and every member of the team contributed. I feel really good with how we performed in the third set and know that we are capable of playing like this all the time."
