APSU volleyball remains winless in conference play

Senior Aubrey Marsellis dominated the volleyball court for the Lady Govs during APSU’s 11th straight loss on the road.

The Lady Govs lost in three close sets to Ohio Valley Conference opponent Morehead State (25-23, 25-20, 25-22) on Saturday, Oct. 3 in Morehead, Ky.

Marsellis led the Lady Govs with 13 kills and a .706 attack percentage, the ninth-best single game attack percentage in program history at APSU.

Morehead controlled the first two sets, posting 17 kills along with a .500 attack percentage in the second frame.

The Lady Eagles were led by their freshman outside hitter Meredith Jewell with 18 kills. According to letsgopeay.com, Jewell is the top hitter in the OVC.

The Lady Govs “blocking and defense were nonexistent,” according to Head Coach Taylor Mott.

The Lady Govs put together their best effort in the third set when they had a 21-20 lead. However, Morehead went on a 5-1 run to finish the match in three sets.

What the Lady Govs lacked in defense, they tried to make up for in offense.

Not far behind Marsellis was senior Samantha Strother with 10 kills and 15 digs, her third double-double of the 2015 season.

Other notable players include redshirt junior Sammie Ebright with four kills and no errors and freshman Kaylee Taff with five kills and a .400 attack percentage.

The Lady Govs seek to end their losing streak on the road on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at Murray State at 7 p.m.

On Friday, Oct. 9, the Lady Govs return to the Dunn Center for a four game home stand.
