Austin Peay State University Lady GovsSpringfield, MO – Sophomore outside hitter Jada Stotts posted 13 kills but Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team could not solve No. 11 Dayton and fell in three sets (14-25, 7-25, 21-25), in the University Plaza Invitational, Friday, at the Hammons Center.

Stotts was the lone bright spot for Austin Peay’s (1-5) offense, recording 13 kills and a .407 attack percentage. The Lady Govs saw both middle blockers stymied by a stout Flyers defense. Sophomore Hillary Plybon, who entered the weekend as the team’s top hitter, was held to three kills. Junior Lauren Henderson had similar troubles, recording two kills.

“Jada was impressive the entire match,” said Lady Govs head coach Taylor Mott. “As a team, we played really well in the third set after we didn’t get off to such a good start. I’m hopeful we can carry that momentum into tonight’s match against UALR.”

Dayton (4-0) had little offensive trouble, recording 47 kills and committing only seven errors (.408 team attack percentage). Senior outside hitter Rachel Krabacher had 18 kills and no errors (.562 attack percentage) to lead the Flyers offense.

Austin Peay continues tournament play when it faces UALR in a 5:00pm contest. It will be the second meeting in a week between the two teams, UALR winning a five-set match in Memphis on opening week.
