NC State grabs second win against Sam Houston, wraps up K-State Invitational

https://www.technicianonline.com/sports/nc-state-grabs-second-win-against-sam-houston-wraps-up-k-state-invitational/article_80892390-2637-11ed-ae23-9b02b64457e8.html


The NC State volleyball team defeated the Sam Houston Bearkats in five sets, two of them requiring extra points. The Pack succeeded in the K-State Invitational with two wins and one loss.

The Wolfpack alternated wins and losses in the first four sets, dropping the first 27-25, then winning 25-23, followed by another 27-25 loss and won the fourth 25-19. The Pack won the match in another close set, 15-13.

Both teams nearly matched in kills, with State barely holding a 63-61 lead. The teams were also almost identical in attack errors with NC State at 31 and Sam Houston at 30. However, the Pack had double the amount of service aces as the Bearkats with 12.

Senior defensive specialist Hannah Wander notched five of those aces, giving the Wolfpack that small edge to win the match. She played in all five sets and contributed 10 digs as well.

Freshman outside hitter Ava Brizard had the most amount of kills on the team with 20. She also tallied four blocks and eight digs in an all-around solid performance.

Sophomore middle blocker Jada Allen saw five sets of action as well, tallying 14 kills in the match. This double-digit performance was higher than both of her totals the previous day, so she will likely see more action because of it.

The two-day K-State Invitational results in two wins and one loss for the Pack. It will travel home on Sept. 2 to play Colgate in Reynolds Coliseum. The home opener will begin at 7 p.m.

NC State volleyball beats Elon, falls to Tennessee in doubleheader

https://www.technicianonline.com/sports/nc-state-volleyball-beats-elon-falls-to-tennessee-in-doubleheader/article_bf96a27e-2bfa-11ed-88a6-aff599da8476.html

The NC State volleyball team beat Elon 3-1 but fell to Tennessee 3-0 in the Wolfpack's first home doubleheader of the 2022 season on Saturday, Sept. 3.

After cruising past Elon (1-5) in the early match for its fourth win of the season, NC State (4-2) fell to Tennessee (3-3). Despite its 3-0 scoreline, the match against the Volunteers was competitive through and through, largely due to sophomore opposite hitter Amanda Rice's amazing 17-kill performance.

Elon

Despite losing the first set 25-21, NC State won three straight sets to send the Phoenix back home in the first match of the day.

Freshman outside hitter Ava Brizard, redshirt sophomore outside hitter Madison Williams and Rice immediately stood out for the Pack in the early match both on the court and in the stats as the trio ended up in a three-way tie for most kills with 12. With all three making plays in every set, it's safe to say they made the difference for the Pack against Elon.

Brizard and Williams made crucial kills at the end of the second set to tie the match at 1-1. Two kills from Brizard increased the Pack's lead to 10 as Williams followed up her teammate's kills with one of her own, putting NC State in position to clinch the set.

After winning the second set 25-15, the Wolfpack continued to rely on Williams and Brizard for the remainder of the match. Meanwhile, Rice also played a big role in the third set as she made two kills early on, helping the Pack gain the lead in what ended up as a close 25-23 win.

Up 2-1 in the fourth set, NC State put the game away thanks to more clutch end-of-set plays by Brizard and Williams. Shortly after Williams scored two straight points to put the Pack up 24-19, Brizard put the match away with a kill, winning the set 25-20 and clinching the match 3-1 for NC State.

But while Rice, Brizard and Williams stood out against Elon, it was Rice that stole the show against the Volunteers in the latter match.

Tennessee

Compared to the first match against Elon, the Wolfpack didn't fare nearly as well against the Volunteers, losing in three straight, closely contested sets. After losing each of the first two sets 25-22, the Wolfpack almost came away with a win in the third set, but the Volunteers prevailed 27-25 to complete the sweep.

For the duration of each set, NC State managed to trade points with Tennessee but couldn't find a way to command the contest and hold onto its lead. Despite short bursts of energy, the Wolfpack ultimately struggled to gain momentum throughout the match. Head coach Luka Slabe commented on the Wolfpack's inability to perform well consistently throughout the entire weekend.

"Regardless of who was on the other side of the net, we struggled," Slabe said. "We were battling uphill for all three sets".

After narrowly losing the first two sets, the Pack's loss in the third set was as close as it gets. With each team trading points all set long, extra points were needed for Tennessee to come away with the win. The Pack was able to position itself on the verge of victory, but couldn't conjure points at the end of sets when it counted the most.
