The Techsters are coming off a straight-set loss at the hands of Idaho Thursday evening and will look to break a 19-game losing streak against the host Redhawks.

Techsters Lose Five-Set Thriller to Visiting Redhawks
In its first five-set match of the season, the Louisiana Tech volleyball team gave a valiant effort, eventually falling to the visiting Seattle Redhawks (25-18, 19-25, 17-25, 25-21, 15-10) Thursday night in the Thomas Assembly Center.

Seattle U, ranked seventh in the WAC standings, is coming off another five-set win over UT Arlington Thursday night at home. The Redhawks have pushed nine of their matches this season to five sets with five of those resulting in wins.

The Techsters are led by a pair of juniors in Caitlin Germany and Clara Vido, with Germany totaling a team-leading 61 blocks thus far, while Vido leads the team in kills with 214 on the year.

After the match in Seattle, the Techsters will travel to UT Arlington to face off against the Mavericks in the team's final match of the 2012 campaign. That match is set to begin at 7 p.m. Thursday at College Park Center on the campus of UT Arlington.
