Volleyball falls in three sets at Fort Wayne
“That’s a tough loss tonight against a very solid and aggressive IPFW team,” head coach Phil McDaniel said. “Unfortunately we did not have enough fight in us to battle.”
The loss drops the Jackrabbits to 5-21 on the season overall and to 3-10 in The Summit League, it also puts to rest any hopes of qualifying for the league tournament next weekend in Indianapolis. The host Mastodons improve to 16-13 overall and to 8-5 in the league.
The only player in the match to record double figures kills, reining Summit League Player of the Year Emily Spencer finished with 14 kills, adding eight digs and a pair of blocks, one solo and one block assist. Jen Milligan led the IPFW defense with 13 digs, and Sarah Heckman added a match-high three block assists.
The Jackrabbits close the 2013 season on Saturday in Indianapolis against IUPUI at 5 p.m. ET, 4 p.m. CT.
