Saturday, September 1, 2007

RUSTON, La.—The Centenary volleyball team jumped out to a 1-0 lead in its consolation match at the Louisiana Tech Invitational against Jackson State on Saturday, but could not hold on in falling 3-1 (25-30, 30-26, 30-21, 30-22) to the Lady Tigers.


Centenary (0-6) collected 12 kills and hit at a .200 attack percentage, its best in any single game this season, to take the opening game of the match 30-25. The Ladies would go on to total 12 blocks, six by Stephanie Hobaugh, and serve for 11 aces, but it was not enough in the end to overcome 15 service errors and 10 Jackson State blocks.


Hobaugh led the Ladies for the second consecutive match with 14 kills while Ashlee Freeman added 11. Elise Sisson proved effective on her 11 attack attempts, pounding down seven kills and earning a team-high hitting percentage of .364. Danielle Bochat notched 15 digs in the loss for Centenary and Lindsay Bekelja handed out 35 assists.


Jackson State (2-5) got 14 kills from Amanda Daniels and 10 more from Erica Greer. Corrina Cox finished with 42 assists and Nicole Walker led the defense with 14 digs.


The Ladies return to action on Tuesday when they host Grambling State in their home-opener at 6 p.m. in the Gold Dome.
