      JONESBORO, Ark. (10/6/22) – Arkansas State’s volleyball team dropped a 3-0 decision to South Alabama Thursday night at First National Bank Arena.

      Macey Putt led A-State (5-12, 0-5 SBC) with 13 kills and just five errors on 33 attacks (.242), while two players registered double-digit kills for the Jaguars (10-7, 4-1), who hit .330 as a squad.

      Sarah Martinez led the Scarlet and Black with 13 digs, while Lauren Musante handed out 13 assists. Kassidy Reeves and Abby Harris accounted for A-State’s two service aces. Kyla Wiersema knocked down a match-high three blocks.

      SET 1 – SOUTH ALABAMA 25, A-STATE 20

      The Red Wolves started off strong, matching USA point for point for much of the early phases of the opening set before the Jaguars pulled ahead with a 7-1 run. A-State clawed back to tie it at 16-all on Harris’ ace, then led 18-17 on a USA attack error. South Alabama closed the set by taking eight of the last 10 points to take a 1-0 lead in the match.

      SET 2 – SOUTH ALABAMA 25, A-STATE 15

      South Alabama took an early 5-2 lead in the second set, but A-State battled back to tie it at 5-5 on kills by Wiersema and Putt, followed by a solo block by Yazmyn Billings. The Jaguars then surged ahead 12-7 after a Reeves ace before pushing out to their largest lead of the set at 24-14. A kill by Ilayda Dincer saved a set point before Hannah Maddux ended the set with one of her match-high 13 kills.

      SET 3 – SOUTH ALABAMA 25, A-STATE 14

      The Jaguars took the first five points of the third set, and 12 of the first 15 before Arkansas State got back-to-back kills by Putt to cut it to 12-5. USA then pushed its lead out to a dozen before an attack error and kill by Dincer cut it back down to 10 and 19-9. South Alabama led 24-11 after a Maddux ace, but A-State kept the match alive by saving three set points before the Jaguars clinched the match on a kill by Evie Taylor.
