NM State Sweeps Denver and Goes to 5-0 in WAC Play

The New Mexico State volleyball team (11-4, 5-0 WAC) swept Denver (8-7, 2-3 WAC) by scores of 25-22, 25-19, 25-16 in the Pan American Center, Saturday, Sept. 29.

The Aggies hit .321 as a team with junior Preslie Alexander leading the charge posting a match-high 13 kills on a career-high .706 hitting percentage. Junior middle blocker Desiree Scott was also very efficient as she marked a .538 hitting percentage to go along with eight kills and two total blocks.

Sophomore Meredith Hays tallied seven kills on the afternoon and led the Aggies on the defensive side of the net with a match-high 12 digs. Junior Stephanie Ziegler, who was at the libero position today, tallied 11 digs, while freshman setter Taylor Livoti posted seven digs to go along with a match-high 21 assists.

The Aggies came out the gates a little sluggish in set one hitting only .219 as a team. NM State used a few Pioneer attack errors to take an early 5-2 lead and never relinquished the lead from there. NM State went up by as many as 10 when a Pioneer attacker hit the ball out of bounds but Denver didn't give up pulling to within two at 24-22. The Aggies won on a Denver service error, 25-22.

Set two saw NM State hit .316 as a team although the Pioneers jumped ahead 3-0 early on. NM State then came back and tied it at three during a set that saw six ties and one lead change. That lead change came when Alexander marked a kill in the middle to put the Aggies up 10-9. It was back-and-forth until the Aggies used a 6-2 scoring rally at the end of the set to win 25-19 with the final point coming on an attack by Alexander.

NM State hammered the Pioneers in set three marking 16 kills on 39 attempts without a single error for a .410 hitting percentage. Scott led the offense in set three with four kills on six swings while Alexander added three kills on four swings. The third and final tie of the set came at 6-6 but the Aggies scored the next four points, three of which were kills by junior Lauren Loerch. NM State took a 10 point lead at 24-14 on a service ace by Hays and the Aggies eventually finished the match on a kill down the line by Loerch.

NM State heads back out on the road next week taking on Utah State, Oct. 4 in Logan, Utah and San Jose State, Oct. 6 in San Jose, Calif. Go to www.NMStateSports.com for more information on the Aggie volleyball team.
