Cowgirls Defeat Alcorn State In Home Opener

 

LAKE CHARLES--  The McNeese volleyball team wasted no time in defeating Alcorn State in its home opener Wednesday night with a straight set 25-11, 25-8, 25-13 win to improve to 3-1 on the year.

     "I was proud of the way we stayed focused.  Even though we played a lot of kids tonight, we kept that focus throughout the entire match," said head coach Terry Gamble.

     The Cowgirls hit a season high .547 on the night coming off of 46 kills in 75 attempts and committed only five errors.  The Cowgirls also used a solid defensive effort and picked up 32 digs and 17 block assists.

     Sophomore Malina Sanchez continued her solid play from the weekend and led all players with a match high 11 kills in 15 attempts.  Sanchez produced a .733 hitting percent and didn't commit error.

     Freshman Sophie Tenbusch also had a good match.  Tenbusch put down 10 kills in 17 attempts with two errors.  She ended the match with a .471 hitting percent.

     McNeese was led in blocking by sophomore Carly DeMarque who led all players with five block assists.  The Cowgirls used two setters on the night with starter freshman Vanessa Bentley dishing out 18 assists and Kelly Graham ended the match with 17.

     The Cowgirls had a host of players pick up at least one dig but freshman libero Kara Rockey led the Cowgirls with six.

     "You can see us developing and getting better each match.  It's fun to watch and I'm excited for McNeese volleyball."

     McNeese began the match by taking a 5-0 lead off the serve of Bentley and Courtni Bauer.  The Cowgirls then outscored Alcorn State 16-9 to take a 21-9 lead late in the set.  A kill by Amber Fryer gave the Cowgirls the first set.  McNeese came out strong in the second set and never let up before going on to win the third set and the overall match.

     "I have to commend the crowd for coming out to our home opener.  We had a lot of students.  The players were excited to see the nice crowd and seeing fellow student-athletes at the match."

     The Cowgirls will travel to Ruston this weekend to take part in the Louisiana Tech Tournament.  McNeese will face host Louisiana Tech at noon and New Orleans at 5 p.m. Friday before facing Western Michigan at 10 a.m. Saturday.
