Lenoir-Rhyne freshman middle blocker Haley Rhyne (Statesville, N.C.) finished with a team-high high nine kills while senior middle blocker Chelsea Hill (Lexington, N.C.) added seven kills for the Bears in the losing effort.
Senior outside hitter Brooke Christenbury (Mooresville, N.C.) and freshman libero Emily Culler (Mount Airy, N.C.) also tallied 11 digs each for the Bears, who were celebrating Senior Day prior to the match.
