UTEP women’s volleyball falls to 2-7 this season after the NMSU Aggies swept the Miners in three sets.

New Mexico State University (8-2)  swept the Miners quick after a 12-3 advantage in the first set.

UTEP was not able to come back from the early deficit causing NMSU to win it 25-11.

However, UTEP stepped up in the second set in back and forth action between the Aggies.

The Miners were able to turn the game around and gain the lead throughout the set thanks to kills from senior Maddie Morgan (9), junior Macey Austin and sophomore Cheyenne Jones each had seven kills for the Miners.

Freshman Kristen Fritsche was a major impact on offense and defense, setting a career-high three blocks.

Unfortunately, the Aggies came back snagging the second set away from the Miners,25-22.

In the third set, the Miners put up a good fight with consecutive kills by Jones and Morgan, but the Aggies took the set 25-21

Not all bad news for the Lady Miners. Morgan led the way for the Miners and set a season-high with nine kills and a high .643 hitting percentage.

Fritsche made a name for herself on the court with 22 assists during the match along with seven digs.

The Miners have not won a game against New Mexico State since 2012.

UTEP volleyball will hit the road this coming weekend to compete at the SDSU/USD Challenge and will face Oregon State, California Baptist, and San Diego State.
