The Aggies scored the first four points in set three off the hands of Michaela Redding, who had a kill, a service ace, and then two serves the Dustdevils could not get back over the net. TAMI finally answered to tie the score 5-5 and the lead changed hands throughout the entire set, but the Aggies won it 27-25.

Despite the momentum going into set four, the Aggies never led as the Dustdevils surged ahead to win it 25-17. TAMI improved their season record to 9-6 overall and 2-3 in conference play while OPSU is 3-12 and 0-5.

For the match, Shaina Eddings led the Aggies with nine kills while teammates Lexi McAdam, Alex Schmitt, and Michaela Redding contributed eight each. Kayla Schwartz and Terra Madden had 18 and 17 assists, respectively, while Nora Pulaski had 20 digs.

The women take to the road next week to play two conference matches and one non-conference match. They take on Dallas Baptist on Oct. 4 at 7 p.m., Huston-Tillotson University, an NAIA team in Austin on Oct 5 at 6 p.m., and St. Edward's in Austin on Oct. 6 at noon.
