The New Mexico State volleyball team swept Louisiana-Lafayette in its first match of the CenturyLink Premier hosted by Texas State winning 25-13, 25-16, 25-16 in the Strahan Coliseum in San Marco, Texas, Friday, Sept. 9.

Freshman Meredith Hays led the Aggies posting a match-high 13 kills, while hitting .320 and coming up with eight digs. Senior libero Kelsi Phillips marked a match-high 11 digs while posting a match-high three service aces. It was the third time this season Phillips has tallied three aces in a match.

Sophomore outside hitter Deirdre Pajares came up with seven kills on 12 attempts to post a .500 hitting percentage as she had one error on the morning. It was the second time in her career she has tallied a .500 hitting percentage or better. Middle hitters Desiree Scott and Kelsey Brennan added five kills each in the match and senior setter Jennah DeVries came up with a match-high 30 assists.

NM State fell behind 5-1 in set one but rallied back and took a 6-5 lead after Phillips posted her first ace of the day. She tallied two more aces later in the set to give the Aggies a 19-13 lead and served for ten consecutive points while NM State won 25-13.

Set two was a bit closer with ties at 11, 12 and 16. The Aggies took over when the set was tied at 16-16 and sophomore defensive specialist entered the match to serve for eight straight points to lead the team to a 25-16 victory. Hays led the way with six kills in the set and sophomore Stephanie Ziegler came up with six of her seven total digs in the set.

The Aggies took set three by the score of 25-16 with Phillips leading the defensive charge marking five digs. The set was tied just once at 1-1 and the Aggies never lost the lead after that. A kill by Brennan gave NM State an early 5-3 lead before freshman Gwen Murphy finished off the Rajun Cajuns with two consecutive kills picking up points 24 and 25.
