The Wright State volleyball team fell to Wyoming in three sets Friday at the Ball State Tournament in Muncie, Indiana.  The Cowgirls won the match 25-13, 25-14, 25-22.

Marisa Aiello gave WSU a 7-6 lead in the opening set with a service ace, only to see Wyoming answer with seven straight points to go in front for good.  The Raiders again led in the early going of the second set at 2-1 on kills by Heidi Splinter and Anna Norman, but the Cowgirls followed with four in a row and gradually pushed the margin to 17-7.

Splinter broke a 9-9 tie in the third set with a kill and an ace and the advantage later grew to 18-14 thanks to a pair of attack errors, but Wyoming eventually evened the score at 20-20 on a Reese Plante kill.  Another attack error put WSU back up one before the Cowgirls closed out the match with a 5-1 run, including four Jodi Purdy kills.

Wyoming led 46-29 in kills and outhit the Raiders .386-.094.

Splinter paced WSU with 13 kills and had nine digs while libero Katie Glassmeyer had 15 digs and setter Ashleigh Lucco tallied 25 assists and nine digs.

Wright State (1-13) faces host Ball State (11:00) and Pittsburgh (4:30) on Saturday.
