College Volleyball: UC Riverside Falls in Straight Sets at UC Davis

Next Up for the Highlanders is Cal Poly

The UC Riverside Women's Volleyball Team (5-8, 1-1) fell 3-0 on the road at UC Davis (10-5, 2-0) Sunday afternoon in a tough matchup that saw the Aggies hit an efficient .418 compared to the Highlanders' .077. UC Davis would take the three sets by scores of 25-14, 25-13, and 25-17.

In a contest that featured only two tie scores and one lead change, the Aggies made an early statement, hitting a match-high .433 in the first set. The Aggies continued to roll in the second, scoring the set's first 11 points and leading by as many as 14 before UCR punched back, but the Highlanders could not overcome the early damage. Errors would hurt the UCR in the final set as UC Davis picked up its second conference win.

Junior Kat Lowry led the Highlanders with nine kills, followed by freshman Amarachi Osuji who added six. Junior Morgan Kline led all players with 27 assists, and sophomore Renata Bath scooped up seven digs.

The Highlanders will look to bounce back this weekend as their road stint continues. They will see a tough pair of opponents on back-to-back days in Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara.
