Oct. 1, 2017

Final Stats

DENTON, Texas - The Louisiana Tech women's volleyball team took a tough, 3-0 (25-23, 25-11, 25-15) defeat to Conference USA foe North Texas, Sunday afternoon from the North Texas Volleyball Center. 

Box Score

Senior outside hitter Marta Monne once again led the Lady Techsters offensively, striking for 10 kills at a .269 hitting percentage. Carter Mirich and Madeline Davis also pitched in for 11 combined kills. Tech hit .171 for the match, while North Texas attacked at a .385 rate.

For the second-straight match, Tech (5-12, 0-3 C-USA) came out strong in the first set. Both the Techsters and the Mean Green (16-2, 3-1 C-USA)scored well early on, as neither team could gain much of an advantage. Midway through the frame, a big solo block from Marta Monne gave Tech its largest lead of the set at 12-8 and forced a North Texas timeout. 

The Techsters would hold the lead throughout most of the frame, culminating in a 21-16 lead late in the set. However, North Texas would respond with a flurry, capturing nine of the final 11 points, propelled by a 6-0 run to end the first set, 25-23. 

The momentum from the first-set victory would carry over into the remaining two sets, as Tech failed to score more than 16 points in either of the final two frames.

The Lady Techsters will return to action next Friday on the road in a C-USA matchup against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders. Live stats and streaming for the match can be found at LATechSports.com.
