"Our loss to William Peace tonight was a hard fought one. We dug ourselves into a couple of pretty deep holes in the second and fourth sets, but I can't be prouder of the effort and determination the team played with. If we continue to play like we did tonight, then I believe we can surprise a lot of teams this season. -- Head Coach Ruthanne Duffy.

Duffy's team was scheduled to play two matches this week that have been postponed due to Hurricane Florence making its way into the Southwest Virginia area. The Panthers' Sept. 12 ODAC match against Emory & Henry College has been rescheduled to Oct. 19 at home. And the Sept. 15 match at Lynchburg has been postponed as well, with no make-up date announced yet. Ferrum's next scheduled match is Friday, Sept. 21, at Randolph College. The ODAC match is set for a 7:00 p.m. start in Lynchburg, Virginia.
