ASHEVILLE – The North Carolina A&T volleyball team suffered a 3-0 (25-20, 13, 12) setback at the hands of UNC Asheville in a non-conference match, Thursday evening at the Justice Center.

Freshman Jillian Nobles led the Aggies (4-20) with a career and match-high 12 kills. It was the second time this season she has led A&T in kills. Nobles also notched a career-high .455 hitting percentage. Meredith Foster finished with 11 kills to help the Bulldogs improve to 13-8 overall.

“Tonight’s match was a disappointing outcome,” head coach Hal Clifton said. “We lost in three sets after a great first set. We played tired physically and mentally. With AJ (Ashley Johnson) out, we needed the team to step up and that didn’t happen.”

The Aggies soared to a 6-2 lead to start the first set. A&T continued to hold its lead and forced the Bulldogs to call a timeout after it stretched its advantage to 11-6. After the game was tied at 13, Asheville scored the next point to take its first lead of the set. A&T tied the set at 19 with a kill from Nobles and the Bulldogs responded with a kill of their own to regain the edge, 20-19. The Aggies scored their final point of the set with a kill from Stamnes as Asheville went on a 5-0 run to win the set.

Asheville owned the second set and cruised to a 13-3 advantage and A&T was never able to respond. The Bulldogs continued their dominance into the third set and clinched a comfortable 16-4 lead to control the set and win the match.

Te'Borah Hawkins-Hollingsworth added seven kills and Liz Martino led A&T in assists (17).

A&T will host N.C. Central on Friday, Oct. 25 for a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) match beginning at 7 p.m., in Moore Gymnasium.
