Box Score

Fayetteville, NC - Fayetteville State is back in the win column after a three (3) set victory over Livingstone College in Capel Arena. The Broncos defeated the Blue Bears 25-15, 25-19, and 25-7. Arlicia Ortiz (Spanaway, WA) led the way with 13 kills and 20 total attacks. Jayde Jacobs (Fayetteville, NC) finished with 9 kills on 13 attacks.

The Broncos advance to 1-1 in the CIAA Southern Division and 4-1 in conference play after losing 3-1 to Winston-Salem State this past Thursday. Livingstone drops to 2-4 overall, 2-3 in conference play and 0-2 in the division.

FSU took early command of the first set with a 17-9 lead but a 5-2 run by Livingstone would force the Broncos into a timeout. Leading 19-14, Fayetteville State would finish the set with a 6-1 stanza.

One would think that Livingstone put forth a better effort in the second set, losing 19-25, but the majority of their points came off of FSU miscues. The Broncos jumped to a quick 4-2 lead but committed four back-to-back errors to help the Blue Bears to a 7-4 lead. After regaining the lead and sitting pretty at 18-8, FSU would have to reset with a diminished lead of 18-15. With new marching orders from Head Coach Reeshemah Johnson, Fayetteville State finished the set with a 2-0 advantage.

The third set became a highlight reel for the Broncos as they cruised to a 25-7 sweep.

Fayetteville State will travel down I-95 to face the Braves of UNC-Pembroke this Thursday. First serve is slated for 6:00 p.m.
