MOUNT OLIVE, N.C. - The Emmanuel College Men's Volleyball Team took on the University of Mount Olive for Friday night's match. After a recent win against conference foe Limestone, the Lions fell short to the Trojans to bring their conference record to 1-1.
Sets one and two were all Mount Olive as the Lions struggled to keep up.

Unfortunately that wasn't enough for the Lions as the Trojans came back with 4 more kills in addition to Emmanuels two errors to take the final set and win the match 25-15, 25-16, 25-23.
