Mocs Volleyball Falls To No. 4 Kansas 3-1

Friday, September 9, 2016
The Chattanooga Mocs volleyball team dropped a 3-1 decision to undefeated Kansas, the fourth-ranked team in the country, during the Bluejay Invitational in Omaha, Neb., hosted by Creighton University on Friday.

The Mocs tied the match at the break by picking up a win in the second set 26-24 after dropping the first set 25-12. Kansas claimed the match in sets three and four by winning 25-17 and 25-13, respectively.

Chattanooga was led on offense by their senior leaders Kristy Wieser (Lincoln, Neb.) and Allie Davenport (Tyrone, Ga.) Wieser, playing in her home state of Nebraska for the first time as a Moc, completed the match with a team-high 00 kills on a .200 hitting percentage while adding four blocks.
Davenport posted a double-double with ten total kills at a .200 clip and collected 14 digs in the loss.

Aiding to the offense was junior Lauren Greenspoon (Houston, Texas) who led the Mocs with 26 assists but also recorded four total blocks to help the defense. 

Six different UTC student-athletes posted a kill in the match including sophomores Miranda Elpers (Louisville, Ky.) and Emily Plumlee (Chesapeake, Va.) with five kills each and freshman Brianna Anderson (Austin, Texas) who collected three kills and two blocks.

On the defensive side, three different Mocs finished with double-digit digs. Davenport with 14 digs, starting libero Rachel Petkosh (Merritt Island, Fla.) also ended with 14 digs and Elpers collected ten.

The Mocs will return to action tomorrow with two matches. They face-off with TCU at 1 p.m. and then close-out the Bluejay Invitational against tournament-host Creighton at 8 p.m. Both matches will be streamed LIVE and can be found on the schedules tab.
