Lady Techster Volleyball Adds Pair of Matches

Aug. 31, 2017

RUSTON, La. – After wrapping up a 1-3 weekend at the Rebel Invitational, the Louisiana Tech women’s volleyball team added matches against UT Martin and Mississippi State to the docket. The squad was forced to make schedule adjustments due to the cancellation of the Lamar Invitational from heavy rain and flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

LA Tech will take on UT Martin on Thursday evening at 5 p.m. from the campus of Central Arkansas. Then, the Lady Techsters will head home for a couple of days before travelling to Starkville, Mississippi, on Monday, September 4 to battle the SEC foe Mississippi State Bulldogs at 5 p.m. 

Leading the offensive charge for the Techsters this season is outside hitter Marta Monne. The senior earned all-tournament honors at the Rebel Invitational last week after posting 50 kills along with three double-doubles.

UT-Martin holds a 1-2 record this season after dropping matches to Penn State and West Virginia, and snagging a victory over Delaware at the WVU Invitational last weekend.

The Skyhawks return seven players from last year’s roster while welcoming eight newcomers. This season, they are led offensively by Jemima Idemudia (2.30 kills per set) and Macy Reigelsperger (2.20 kills per set). Idemudia has also registered a team-best 11 blocks (1.10 per set) in 2017.

Mississippi State competed in the SMU Doubletree Invitational last weekend, and went 2-1 with wins over SMU and Texas A&M - Corpus Christi. The Bulldogs dropped their final match of the tournament to Rice.

The Bulldogs welcome 10 new faces (seven freshman) this season. Rookie Sara Maddox has come on strong for Mississippi State, posting 25 kills in her first collegiate contest. Over the weekend, she collected 49 kills and 50 points, both of which are team bests.

This will be the last set of matches before Tech opens up play at home next weekend, hosting Memphis, Sam Houston State and Arkansas-Pine Bluff in the Lady Techster Invitational.
