**For Immediate Release**
Lady Aggies Fall to St. Edward’s in Volleyball Action
- by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 9/19/05

Goodwell, OK - The Oklahoma Panhandle State volleyball team played well in their matches over the weekend with Heartland Conference rival St. Edward’s (the Hilltoppers).

On Friday, the Hilltoppers started quickly and won the first two games of the match (30-21 and 30-27), though the Lady Aggies did not make it easy on them.

In the third game of the match, the Lady Aggies played some very good volleyball, and picked up a 30-23 win. However, the Hilltoppers came back strong and won the fourth game (30-23), giving them a 3-1 match victory.

Lacy Jones led the Lady Aggies with eight kills and teammates Krista Simpson and Val Armstrong each had six. The hard working Kirbi Twilligear had 24 defensive digs, and Simpson and Armstrong each had six blocks.

The same two teams met on Saturday for another match. St. Edward’s won the first game 30-18, as well as the second, 30-17. Jones continued to play tough for the Lady Aggies, especially with her serves and defense.

In the third game of the match, St. Edward’s jumped out to a fast 21-8 lead and held on for a 30-18 win, and the match victory.

The next home action for the Lady Aggies will be against Montana State – Billings on October 3.
