Pfeiffer Volleyball Falls Twice in Home USA South Tri-Match
Misenheimer, N.C. (Sept. 28, 2019) – The Pfeiffer University volleyball team hosted a USA South tri match on Saturday afternoon at Merner Gym, falling to Meredith 3-0 (13-25, 20-25, 16-25) and to Greensboro, 3-2 (25-23, 20-25, 23-25, 25-19, 9-15).
In the first match of the afternoon against Meredith, the visiting Angels hit for .337 in the match while holding the Falcons to just a .073 hitting percentage. Meredith also had seven aces compared to Pfeiffer only managing two.
Meredith got a team-best nine kills from Ally Copenhaver while teammates Hailey Long and Cathy Delano each had seven.
Pfeiffer was led by senior Bri Weber (Jesup, Iowa), as she finished with eight kills. Angelina Fardella (Harrisburg, N.C.) had 18 assists and a team-best 12 digs.
In the second match of the afternoon against Greensboro, the Falcons took the first set by a 25-23 score to take the early 1-0 lead. Greensboro then took sets two and three by scores of 25-20 and 25-23.
The Falcons forced a deciding fifth set by downing the Pride 25-19 in the fourth.
In the fifth, Greensboro jumped to a 6-3 lead after a Falcon attacking error and would stretch their lead to 11-5 following an ace from Addie Haywood.
Pfeiffer did close to within 12-8 following a Reagan Wyatt (Stoneville, N.C.) kill, but that would be the closest the Falcons would get, as Greensboro eventually took the 15-9 win to claim the match.
Wyatt would lead the Falcons with 18 kills while fellow freshman Mattie Burris (Misenheimer, N.C.) finished with 11. Bri Weber and sophomore Alonna Clouse (Harrisburg, N.C.) each had 10 to complete the double-digit scoring for the Falcons. Fardella again let the team in assists with 35 while
Kaitlin Kilts (Madison, N.C.) had 30 digs.
With the setbacks, Pfeiffer dips to 9-4 overall and 0-2 in USA South play.
Pfeiffer will next be in action on Oct. 1 when they venture away from Misenheimer for the first time since September 7, taking on Methodist at 7:00 p.m. in Fayetteville, N.C.
