NM Highlands Tops Lady Aggies in Tuesday Volleyball
by Aggie Sports on 11/02/05
Goodwell, OK – The Cowgirls of
New Mexico Highlands topped Oklahoma Panhandle State 3-0
in volleyball action here on Tuesday night.
Prior to the match, Kirbi Twilligear
of the Lady Aggies was honored. The Leakey, Texas native
is the only senior on this year’s team and is one of
the Heartland Conference leaders in defensive digs.
All of the games were well played and close, but New Mexico
Highlands won all three (30-22, 30-21, and 30-22).
Krista Simpson and Lacy Jones played
well for the Lady Aggies and Twilligear made the most of
her final home court appearance for OPSU. The 5’4” “firecracker” made
some great defensive plays, and fearlessly dove headlong for
saves several times.
The Lady Aggies close their regular season this weekend, on
the road against Dallas Baptist.
