Rams Take Thrilling Five-Set Win Over Chowan (633 hits)

For the second time in two days, the Winston-Salem State Rams (11-5, 6-1 CIAA) had to dig deep to grind out a key five-set victory when the team took a five-set win over the Chowan Hawks (10-7, 7-2 CIAA) on the second day of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Volleyball Round Up. After taking wins in the first two sets, 25-18, and 25-23, the Rams dropped back-to back sets to the Hawks, 16-25, and 20-25 before closing out the match with a 16-14 fifth-set victory.

The Rams took the win behind one of their top performances of the season. It was the Rams' defense that keyed the win as the Rams totaled 82 digs in the match while totaling 49 kills in the match. Three Rams recorded double-digit kills in the match with sophomore Mia Herrod leading the way with 13 kills. Senior middle blocker Jocelyn Mills added 11 kills along with five total blocks (none solo). Junior setter Jasmine Smith also added her second double-double effort when she totaled 10 kills with 19 assists. Freshman libero Mikayla Litton led the WSSU defense with 31 digs. Junior outside hitter Sydney Holland added 12 digs as well.
