Goodwell, OK – The Oklahoma Panhandle State volleyball team opened their season last weekend in Lakewood, Colorado in the Mile High Classic hosted by Colorado Christian University. It was a tough field and Lady Aggie coach Cindy Hughes was proud of the Lady Aggie effort.

On Friday morning, OPSU played Chadron State and lost three games (19-30; 21-30; and 20-30). Later that day, they played a very tough Central Oklahoma squad and also lost three (15-30; 10-30 and 22-30).

On Saturday, the Lady Aggies faced two more good teams (New Mexico Highlands and Colorado Christian).

In their first match, they lost three to NM Highlands (10-30; 18-30 and 13-30).

In their final match, they showed great determination and very nearly came up with the first victory of the season. They won the first two games by identical 30-28 scores, but lost their next two (24-30 and 23-30). In the rubber game for the match victory, they lost 9-15.

Hughes added that she was pleased with the team performance and said the Lady Aggies showed some very good hustle. The second year coach noted strong performances by Kirbi Twilligear, Lacy Jones and Val Armstrong. Twilligear was last season’s OPSU Volleyball Student Athlete of the Year.
