Eagle Volleyball drops both games in Texas
GS logo
Texas State asserted its dominance early and often, routing the Georgia Southern volleyball team 3-0 (25-10, 25-15, 25-13) Saturday night at the Strahan Arena at the University Events Center.
 
Eagles of the Match
Carly Turner had a team-high six kills while Baylor Bumford added another five on .556 kill percentage and two total blocks. Madison Brown recorded 20 assists.
 
Key stats
The Bobcats out-hit the Eagles .449 to .139 and held GS to only 23 kills in the entire game.
 
Key moments
Texas State (14-7, 6-1) jumped out to an 8-0 lead to start the game, eventually winning the first set 25-10. That early dominance set a tone as Georgia Southern (6-11, 1-5) would never score more than 15 in sets two and three.   
 
Quotables from head coach Chad Willis
"Our effort and all around energy was better tonight. I thought Texas State did a nice job pressuring us from the service line and they were so balanced offensively, it kept us on our heels. Our first four conference road matches were all against the preseason top-four teams in the league, so we really put ourselves through the grinder so to speak. We're ready to get back to work and get back home to Hanner next weekend."
