The Wright State volleyball team fell short in a five-set decision to Milwaukee in the season finale Saturday at the C.J. McLin Gymnasium.  The Panthers won the match 22-25, 25-20, 25-16, 21-25, 15-10.

It was back and forth for most of the opening set until WSU took advantage of a pair of Panther errors to open a 23-20 lead.  Milwaukee answered with two to draw to within one, but the Raiders took the set on kills by Dani Branco and Heidi Splinter.

The Panthers, however, erased a 14-11 deficit to win the second set and then jumped out to an 8-3 lead in taking the third set.

Wright State came back to take the fourth set, but fell behind 7-0 to start the final set.  The Raiders later drew to within three at 12-9 on another Splinter kill, but could get no closer as two kills from Rachel Neuberger helped seal the deal.

Milwaukee held a slight 63-56 kill advantage, but led .220-.131 in hitting percentage.

Wright State (2-30, 0-14 Horizon) was led by Splinter's double-double effort of 20 kills and 15 digs while Branco had 11 kills off the bench.  Libero Katie Glassmeyer had a season-high 33 digs and setter Ashleigh Lucco also posted a double-double of 45 assists and 12 digs.
