PITTSBURGH --- Despite some shining moments - like freshman Chelseylynn Frock's first collegiate kill - Carlow University volleyball lost, 3-0, to visiting Asbury (Ky.) University Friday night.

The Celtics (6-17, 0-13 RSC) were without three starting players due to injury, forcing others into spots they are not usually accustomed to playing.

The Eagles (11-12, 7-5 RSC) started off strong, taking a lead in the first set after Hailey Jordan put up five aces in a row. They went on to win, 25-12.

The teams were neck and neck in the second set until the 10th point when Asbury went on a run. The Eagles won, 25-13.

In the final set, Asbury looked to put things away early, scoring nine points before the Celtics were able to answer.

The Eagles hit .284 on the night compared to Carlow's .079.

The Celtics had 15 kills as a team and 32 digs.

Carlow hosts Midway (Ky.) University on Saturday, Nov. 2 for a 12 p.m. River States Conference match in St. Joseph Athletic & Fitness Center. Links to live video can be found at https://bit.ly/VB_19.
