A-State Volleyball Falls to No. 15 Creighton

August 31, 2018

DALLAS, Texas (8/31/18) – The Arkansas State volleyball team dropped a 3-0 (15-25, 13-25, 26-28) contest to No. 15 Creighton to open the SMU Doubletree Classic Friday morning at Moody Coliseum in Dallas, Texas.

Carlisa May led the Red Wolves (2-2) with 14 kills, while Creighton (2-2) was led by Jaali Winters’ 17. The Bluejays out hit A-State .269-.091 and had 9.5 blocks to the Red Wolves’ nine. Tatum Ticknor led the team with 12 digs, while Timber Terrell had a solid defensive effort with six blocks, one shy of her career high. Peyton Uhlenhake played one set but tallied four kills in four attempts.

The Red Wolves, down 0-2, jumped out to a 10-8 edge in set three on a kill by May and led 19-17 on a kill by Macey Putt before a 3-0 run put the Bluejays ahead 20-19. The two teams traded blows with A-State earning set points at 24-23 and 25-24, but couldn’t close it out. May tied the set at 26-26 with a kill, but two straight points by Creighton gave them the set 28-26 and the match 3-0.

“We finally started trusting what we were doing in the third set,” A-State head volleyball coach David Rehr said. “It was a rough couple of sets, but we showed that when we trust the process we can play with some of the best teams in the country like Creighton. We will have a solid rest of the weekend if we play it like we did in set three.”

The first set between the two teams was tied 7-7 and A-State only trailed 13-11 after a kill by May, but a 12-4 run clinched a 25-15 set win for the Bluejays. The second set began much the same tied 5-5 after a block by Kenzie Fields and Terrell, but Creighton was able to earn a 13-10 advantage with an 8-5 run. However, the Bluejays used an 8-0 run to jump in front 21-10 and never looked back in a 25-13 set two win.

Arkansas State returns to action later tonight with a 7 p.m. matchup against the host SMU.
