FERRUM, Va. – The Shenandoah University volleyball team earned its second straight ODAC victory Tuesday night with a 3-2 win at league newcomer Ferrum College.

IN BRIEF

Shenandoah (7-8, 2-3 ODAC) found itself a 2-1 hole after Ferrum (7-9, 0-5) sandwiched 26-24 and 25-23 victories in the first and third sets around a 25-19 SU win in the second, but rallied for the win.

Coach Jaime Terenzi's club was a 25-14 victor in the fourth before closing the Panthers out with a 15-7 win in the fifth.

The five-set win is the second in a week for the club after dropping its first four five-set matches of the season.

Shenandoah scored 10 of the first 12 points in the fifth to put itself in position for the victory. A Caylin Harris kill, followed by a pair of Ferrum errors, closed out the match.
