GREENSBORO (August 29, 2017) – Senior Alyssa Pitt helped the North Carolina A&T volleyball team get off to its best start in 16 years with a spectacular weekend in Montgomery, Ala.

Pitt’s weekend helped the Aggies defeat Alabama A&M and Grambling State before losing a tough five-set match to tournament host ASU. The Aggies 2-0 start to the season was their best since 2001.

Pitt was productive in the later sets throughout the weekend. In the three-set win over Alabama A&M on Friday, Aug. 25, Pitt posted 12 of her match-high 14 kills over the final two sets, posting a .526 hitting percentage over that time frame. She also had four of her five total blocks over the final two sets.

In the Aggies four-set victory over the Tigers on Saturday, Pitt posted eight of her match-high 13 kills in the final two sets. She had 13 attack attempts combined in the third and fourth sets without an error (.615 hitting percentage).
