The Tennessee State volleyball team (6-19, 0-11 OVC) could not capitalize on its momentum from yesterday's near upset of Eastern Kentucky to defeat Morehead State (15-8, 8-2 OVC) on Saturday afternoon. The Lady Tigers fell to the Lady Eagles, 3-0.
Morehead State dominated the Lady Tigers in games one and two, holding them to under a .100 hitting percentage in both games.
Tennessee State began to come alive in game three but it was too little too late as the Lady Eagles snuck by, 30-28.
The Lady Tigers were led by freshman LaQuata Marsh (Chattanooga, Tenn.), who hit a team-high .136 with nine kills and six digs. Sophomore Catherine Armwood (Durham, N.C.) was the backbone of the defensive effort, contributing 29 digs. Senior Kristin King (East St. Louis, Ill.) saw her second-consecutive game where she recorded two service aces.
Tennessee State returns to action on Tuesday, Oct. 28, as it travels across town to take on city rival David Lipscomb. Match time is set for 7 p.m.
