Morehead, KY – Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team saw its season come to an end with a four-set loss (15-25, 25-18, 25-27, 25-17) to Tennessee State in the first round of the 2012 Ohio Valley Conference Volleyball Championship, Thursday, at Wetherby Gym.
Austin Peay (17-16) could not overcome an error-prone outing as they committed 20 attack errors, nine service errors and an uncharacteristic six ball handling errors – a total of 35 points handed to Tennessee State.
“We had too many errors at crucial times,” said Lady Govs head coach Taylor Mott. “Our errors prevented us from gaining enough momentum to finish the third and fourth sets.”
In addition, senior Nikki Doyle and sophomore Jada Stotts, the Lady Govs top two hitters, had sub-par nights. Doyle was held to seven kills and an .097 attack percentage while Stotts was able to post 12 kills but only at a .132 attack percentage.
The Lady Govs middle blockers attempted to fill the gap. Junior Lauren Henderson recorded a team-best 14 kills and a .462 attack percentage while sophomore Hillary Plybon added eight kills. Senior opposite hitter Alex Sain added nine kills at a .318 attack percentage.
Tennessee State (18-13) needed a 57-kill performance to end Austin Peay’s season as the match featured 31 ties and 10 lead changes. Naomi Wells led all hitters with 16 kills and posted a .324 attack percentage. Rachel Ambroch added 13 kills.
“I am very proud of this team and the improvements they have made this season,” said Mott. “Most of all I am proud of the people they are and the character they have displayed this season.”
