VOLLEYBALL MAKES BIG IMPRESSION ON OPENING DAY OF UNC-CHARLOTTE TOURNAMENT
Friday, September 10, 2004
CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- The Tennessee State University volleyball team (2-5, 0-0 OVC) opened up its first day at the SpringHill Suites Classic hosted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a 3-1 come from behind win over first-time opponent St. Francis of Pennsylvania (0-3). The Lady Tigers then closed out the day with a hotly-contested loss to the University of New Orleans (5-0), 3-0. After dropping the first game to the Red Flash, 30-15, the Lady Tigers turned on the heat, shocking St. Francis as they went on to take the next three games, 30-28, 32-30 and 30-27. Junior Catherine Armwood (Durham, N.C.) notched her first double-double of the season with 10 kills and 20 digs while classmate Jennifer Washington (East Pointe, Ga.) collected a season-high 26 digs. Rookie Allyson Buckner (Humble, Texas) added a team-high 14 kills. In the nightcap, Tennessee State started strong against the Privateers, falling 30-22 in the first game. But a strong defensive by New Orleans, including four players who turned in double digit performances in digs, shut the Lady Tigers down. TSU made a strong effort in the third game before UNO pulled away 30-28 for the three-game sweep. Tennessee State returns to action on Saturday, September 11 as it takes on Appalachian State at 3 p.m. EST, followed by host UNC-Charlotte at 7 p.m.
