Volleyball Drops Opener at Arkansas-Monticello / Jace Aymond
After a historic season last spring that saw the Lady Choctaws make it all the way to the GSC semifinals, the 2021 opener did not go as planned. The Lady Choctaws traveled to Arkansas-Monticello to take on the Blossoms, but ultimately lost, 3-2, in all five sets.
The first and third sets were no problem for MC as they cruised to easily take them by scores of 25-18 and 25-15 respectively. Sets two and four were a different story as both teams could not seem to break away from one another. However, UAM won those sets in tight scores of 26-24 and 25-21. The final set saw the Sweeties break away by a score of 15-7 and handed the Lady Choctaws their first loss of the season.
The Lady Choctaws will be on the road yet again as they head west to Tyler, Texas to compete in the 2021 Dakota’s Patriot Classic. MC plays two games this Friday, September 10, and two additional games the day after. On Friday, the team will start early with a match against Harding University at ten in the morning. Then, they will be back in action against Ferris State just a few hours later at 2:00. On Saturday, the Lady Choctaws take on Southeastern Oklahoma State and Dallas Baptist at 11 and 1:00 respectively.
