Despite valiant effort, Rams Volleyball fell short to Elms College 3-1 Sept. 21.
The Volleyball team has been on a tear of late, winning their last six heading into their Tuesday night showdown against Elms.
The game was back and forth all night as both teams exchanged big runs.
Elms took the first set of the match to secure a 1-0 lead, but the Rams were able to tie it 1-1 up by taking the 2nd set.
“I think we had a rough start, but we came together to push back against them,” said sophomore Emily Flaherty.
Elms took the 3rd set and a 2-1 lead, but the Rams did comeback and make it a game.
The Rams were leading most of the 4th set and looking to force a 5th and final set, but at the end Elms went on a run to close out the match.
“This definitely wasn’t our best game, but I’m proud of my teammates for continuing to work hard,” Flaherty said.
Flaherty said she is looking forward to the team unlocking their full potential throughout the season.
“I’m really excited to grow as a team,” Flaherty said.
While the Rams did not get the result they expected against Elms, they have a matchup on Saturday against Westfield where they are looking to bounce back.
Against Elms junior Brandee Thomas led the Rams with 13 kills, sophomore Hailee Sanders had 8 kills, and graduate student Morgan Failla had a team high of 29 assists.
