NMSU Volleyball Falls To No. 4 Texas, 3-0

Written By: NMSU Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State volleyball (4-3) team went head-to-head with national power house, No. 4 Texas (3-1) and even though the Aggies had moments of brilliance, NMSU fell, 3-0 (25-17, 25-19, 25-17), Saturday, Sept. 6, at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces, N.M.

Head coach Mike Jordan said he was proud of the way his team played at times against the national power house.

"Playing a great team like Texas at home is a lot of fun and hopefully we can learn from it," Jordan said. "We played good volleyball, but the key was we were trying to avoid their blocking at time instead of attacking."

Leading the way for the Aggies was senior outside hitter Lindsey You (San Antonio, Texas) with nine kills, while junior outside hitter Krista Altermatt (El Dorado Hills, Calif.) added seven. Freshman setter Jennah DeVries (Denver, Colo.) recorded a team-high 13 assist on the night.  Continue Reading This Post >>

The Aggies and Cougars were tied at 13 points and the Aggies won the final two points of the set including the game clincher on a service ace.
