12 Straight Road Matches for OPSU Volleyball; Home this Week

—By Scott Puryear of OPSU Sports on 10/10/2011 Goodwell, Okla.—The hard working members of the Oklahoma Panhandle State volleyball team are finishing up a stretch of a dozen consecutive road matches, but will be back on their home court later this week.

Last week, they played three matches in three states. On Wednesday they lost a 3-0 match in Edmond to a tough team from Central Oklahoma, and on Thursday they fell 3-0 at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith.

On Saturday, they were in Wichita, Kansas to go against Heartland Conference rival Newman University and the Aggies dropped a hard fought match by the score of 3-1. They won the first set 25-21, and worked hard in the next three sets, though Newman won all three of them (25-14, 25-15, and 25-18) to get the 3-1 match win.

In addition to their tough schedule, the Aggies (now 3-20) have suffered several injuries, but not one member of the team is leaning on that as an excuse. Against Newman, they again worked for a victory with Brianna Drayer getting ten kills, April McCain getting 31 assists, and Alani Hoffer being credited with 11 digs.

On Tuesday the Aggies will head to Portales for a match with Eastern New Mexico. They will be back on their home court on Thursday for a match against Texas A&M International and the first serve is set for 7:00 p.m. On Friday night, they will host another Heartland squad—St. Mary's University, and the match is set to start at 7:00 once again.
