GEORGETOWN, TEXAS (Sept. 25, 2019) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) volleyball team fell 3-0 to Southwestern University (SU) and are now 10-2 on the season.
The Saints led early in every set but couldn't capitalize on the momentum. Southwestern tallied 41 kills and 10 aces. Anyssa Rivera (SR/El Paso, Texas) led the team with seven kills and 13 assists. OLLU struggled on the attack by only having a .111 killing percentage. This was only the second loss of the season for the Saints, ending a seven-game winning streak.
Head Coach Scott Mattera commented on the match saying, "We just played really tentative all match and seemed really uncomfortable. Everyone was out of sorts and we just didn't respond well to the adversity we are facing right now. We are going to get back in the gym tomorrow, make some adjustments and build each other up for an important weekend."
This is the ninth matchup against Southwestern University. The Pirates lead the series 7-1, with the Saints' only win coming in 2017.
