HARTSVILLE, S.C. – The Coker women's volleyball team dropped a highly competitive South Atlantic Conference match, 3-0, to the Tusculum College Pioneers on Friday (Oct. 10) night.

The Pioneers outdueled the Cobras to capture set one 25-16. However, sets two and three would be barnburners, with Coker and Tusculum trading points back and forth. The Pioneers would narrowly escape with set victories of 25-21 and 26-24, respectively, to take the match 3-0.

Freshman Brooke Closset led the Navy and Yellow with 12 kills, while Megan Hardy added five kills and six blocks.
