LAS CRUCES, N.M.--The Lady Techster volleyball team dropped their second match of a four match road stretch Saturday afternoon as New Mexico State (10-5, 5-1 WAC) downed Tech in three sets at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces, N.M. Set scores were 25-18, 25-16 and 25-15.
For the second match in a row the Techsters (12-10, 2-4 WAC) had trouble getting into a groove on offense as Tech recorded a .082 hitting percentage in the match.
Tech got off to a rough start in the first set as the Aggies steadily built an 18-10 lead in the set and would not look back going on to win the set 25-18 over the Techsters.
Louisiana Tech battled throughout the entire second set before New Mexico State would go on a 7-0 run to end the set 25-16.
The third set seemed to be more of the same as the Techsters were unable to slow the Aggie offense and New Mexico State would go on to a 25-15 set win ending the match.
