Tech Volleyball Falls Short Against Oral Roberts

HOUSTON -- After a commanding 3-0 win over Rice Friday night, the Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters (1-1) lost their first match of the 2007 season to Oral Roberts on the second day of the 2007 Mizuno Invitational by a final of three games to none.

“Our focus was not where it was last night,” Tech head coach Heather Mazeitis said. “We’ll bounce back tonight against Lamar.”

Senior Kristen Fairbanks finished with her second double-double of the season in as many games with 13 kills and 10 digs. Senior Shannon Phillips finished the match with 15 kills and seven digs.

Sophomore KC Clayton earned five blocks for the Techsters for the day, while juniors Brittney Nakamura and Debora Bolohnini finished with 11 and 10 digs, respectively.

Tech will return to action this evening against Lamar with the match set to start at 4:30 p.m.
