The Albany State University Lady Rams helped to win the battle against breast cancer, but lost their volleyball battle 1-3 to the Clark Atlanta University Lady Panthers ON Monday night.The Lady Rams observed National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink and white uniforms and spreading the word to fans about the importance of breast cancer screenings. “October is breast cancer awareness month and the Lady Rams always help in trying to increase awareness of breast cancer and the importance of getting examinations to detect this dreaded disease,” said head coach Robert Skinner. “While I’m proud of their efforts in helping with breast cancer awareness, I’m very disappointed in the way we played against Clark Atlanta. We will have to make some adjustments and refocus on our goal of winning the 2010 championship.” Junior power hitter Sabrina Garcia (pictured) led the Lady Rams’ offense with 17 kills and senior hitter Latrice Lewis added 16. Junior setter Jennifer Johnson led the Lady Rams’ defense with 18 digs, and senior setter Priscila Sena added 12 more. Sena also recorded 42 assists and a service ace. The Lady Rams will return home to play Alabama A&M University on Oct. 28, and Paine College on Oct. 29 at 6 p.m. All ASU home matches are free of charge and open to the public.
