SAN ANTONIO - It was a tough situation to be in for the Benedictine University Mesa women's volleyball team, having their opening trip cut short by severe weather in the region.
They tried to make the most of it on Friday, but couldn't pull out wins in either of their matches at the Hotel Indigo Saints Classic hosted by Our Lady of the Lake University, falling to Texas Wesleyan, 3-0 (17-25, 19-25, 22-25), and Wayland Baptist, 3-2 (25-21,18-25,25-23,16-25,14-16), in their first two matches of 2017 season.
BenU Mesa was unable to get much going against Texas Wesleyan in the first match. The closest they came to taking a set came in the third frame, where they held a 20-16 lead late in the set, but were unable to hold it.
Savannah Ekis led the way in the loss, tallying nine kills for the Redhawks.
Match 2 against Wayland Baptist was much more competitive, with both teams going back and forth right up until the final points. However, the Redhawks couldn't find the final two points to finish off the match and fell to 0-2 on the season.
Ariah Evans paced the offense in the second match, recording 10 kills. BenU was strong defensively, as Caitlan Sammons tallied 31 digs, while Hayden Boucher and Olivia Ortiz each chipped in with 19. Ortiz also added 29 assists in the loss.
The Redhawks are back in action on Sunday, August 27 for their home opener against the University of the Southwest at Heap Gymnasium. Match time is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. and it is a Red-Out!
