Ole Miss took the first set of the match 25-18 and recorded 17 kills in the frame. Chattanooga was limited to 10 kills while freshman Allie Davenport (Tyrone,Ga.) led with three kills on 10 attacks. Junior Melissa Green (Boca Raton, Fla.) collected four digs and both sophomore Callie Hildebrand (Signal Mountain, Tenn.) and freshman Kendall Sexton (Orlando, Fla.) blocked an attack.

The Mocs edged a bit closer with a 25-20 effort and totaled a match-best 12 kills. Sophomore Briana Reid (Houston, Texas) took the bulk of points with three kills while sophomore Lauren Gainer (Boca Raton, Fla.), Sexton and Davenport each recorded two kills each. Hildebrand was UTC’s defensive leader in the set with six digs.

The third and final set of the match would resemble the first set closely with Chattanooga falling 25-18. The Mocs were held to seven kills with Davenport recording four of them. Sexton stood tall at the net against the Ole Miss offense, blocking three Rebel attacks.

The Mocs enter Southern Conference play Friday in Greenville, S.C., as Chattanooga takes on Furman at 6 p.m. Saturday’s match begins at 6 p.m. as well with UTC visiting Spartanburg, S.C., for a match with Wofford.
