Indiana Tech volleyball battles in Miami
The Indiana Tech volleyball team faced some tough competition Friday at the St. Thomas Invitational in Miami, Fla., and took both matches to five sets, but couldn't pull out the wins and fell to 1-2 on the season.
In the first match, the Warriors fell behind early to the 19th-ranked Blue Raiders of Lindsey Wilson, dropping set one 25-18 and set two 25-16 but the resilient Orange and Black fought back to take sets three and four 25-18 and 25-17, respectively. They couldn't keep the momentum though, dropping the final set 15-10.
Junior Christine Foest once again led Tech in kills with 11 and added 12 digs while senior Suzanne Taylor tallied 10 kills as well. Freshman Alexandra Roberts led the team with 18 assists and senior Kelsey Fitzpatrick added 13 for the Warriors.
Freshmen Cassandra Sarabia (Rossford, Ohio) and Taylor Kelso had 14 and 10 digs respectively, while junior Stacy Nagy tallied a team high five blocks while Sarabia, Taylor and junior Shanice Richards each had two.
In match two, it was a much different start, but the outcome stayed the same as the Warriors lost in five sets (15-25, 22-25, 25-12, 25-23, 10-15) after taking a 2-0 lead.
Taylor led the team with 13 kills while Foest tallied 12 and Nagy added 10. Roberts once again led the team in assists with 26 and Fitzpatrick tallied 17.
Kelso made 20 digs in the five sets while Foest added 10 for the Warriors. But Tech tallied just six blocks with Richards and Taylor recording two each.
“Today we suffered a couple tough losses, but it was a great challenge,” said head coach Kourtney Volkmer. “It was great to see some of our athletes step up, we have a lot of potential. It's a long road to conference, that's why we play these tough games early in the season. In the long run, it will make us a stronger team.”
The Warriors conclude play at the St. Thomas Invitational at 10 a.m. Saturday with a match against Missouri Baptist.
