ORANGEBURG, SC (September 14, 2023) – The Claflin Lady Panthers (2-2, 0-1 CIAA) opened home court on a down note when the team took a three-set loss to the Shaw Lady Bears (9-2, 3-0 CIAA), Thursday evening. The Lady Panthers gave a solid effort in the match, but the team could never seem to get things into gear in the tough loss.

Claflin freshman Caytlyn Sanford led the way for the team with four kills in the match. Senior opposite side hitter Kyndall Perry added a pair of service aces.
