Golden Eagles fall at OVC leader Morehead State, 3-1

MOREHEAD, Ky. - They knew it was going to be a tough match heading into it. It was a showdown of the number one and two in the OVC. But it was number one Morehead State that claimed the OVC win over the Tennessee Tech volleyball team to remain undefeated in the conference.

Tech (8-9, 5-2 OVC) returns home next weekend when they take on Murray State and UT Martin on Friday and Saturday. Match times are 7 p.m. and 2 p.m. respectively.

"They are a tough team," said head coach John Blair. "We knew going in it was going to be a battle. We missed some opportunities that they capitalized on."

Morehead State used timely plays in the first set and claimed the 25-23 set win. But it was Tech who came back during the second set and leveled the match up at one set apiece heading into the longer set break.

The momentum then switched back in favor of the Eagles and claimed the final two sets to pick up the OVC win.

Tech was lead by junior Amanda Lindgren with 13 kills. On the defensive side of the net junior Katie Kenline set her career record for digs in a single set with 17 in the first set and finished with 41.
