 The Lee volleyball team fell to No. 20 Colorado School of Mines and Davenport on Saturday afternoon to wrap up the Oredigger Classic.

"We knew going into this tournament we were going to be facing some tough competition.
Each team we played ran a different style of play and we wanted to see that early in the year. The record doesn't show how hard the girls played and made strides these few days," said coach Andrea Hudson, now in her 28th year on the sidelines for the Lady Flames. "We are anxious to get back home and play for our home crowd."

Lee fell to Davenport 3-1 (21-25, 25-22, 11-25, 12-25) in Saturday's nightcap. The loss dropped the Lady Flames to 0-4 on the young season while the Panthers improved to 1-3.

Davenport jumped out to an early 14-7 lead in the opening set before Lee responded by getting the next nine out of 12 points to cut the gap to one at 17-16. The Panthers created separation from there to take the set, 25-21.
 
Set two saw quite a reversal as it was the Lady Flames that quickly took a 9-4 lead thanks to kills from Mary Katherine Givhan, and Quinne Dauost. Kylee Smith wrapped up the six-point run with an ace. Davenport rallied back to tie things up at 13 forcing Lee to call a timeout. Lee quickly righted the ship, took a 21-16 lead. Reuter would bring home the set for Coach Hudson's squad with a decisive kill.
 
Davenport ran away with the third and fourth sets by scores of 25-11 and 25-12 to win the match. The Panthers were paced by Jessica Marvin with 14 kills, followed closely by Haley Kreiger with 13. Sydney Tracer got the second hits with 21 assists, while Kasey Stehouwer got the offense ready with 22 digs.
 
At Colorado School of Mines
