Ten kills by junior Kaitlyn Shearer was not enough to slay the Jaguars of Georgia Southern as ULM fell in three straight sets Thursday.

After falling behind 9-4 early in the first the Warhawks tied the game at 14 each.

Despite a brief lead off of kills by junior Hope Pawlik and Kaitlyn Shearer the Warhawks dropped the last three points to fall 25-22.

After a quick 4-0 start by ULM to start the second the Jaguars tied it at six apiece.

Following nine lead changes a kill by Georgia Southern broke open a 13-13 game. The Jaguars went on to make seven more kills and take the set 25-19.

The Warhawks would notch only five kills in the third as the Jaguars rolled to a 25-9 match victory.

Coach Patrick Hiltz was displeased with the

mental fortitude his team showed.

“Physically we’re a great team. We’ve got to get out of our own heads and just play the game,” Hiltz said.

vs Troy

Junior Kaitlyn Shearer recorded a match-high five blocks and junior Hope Pawlik thirteen kills in a 3-1 loss to Troy Friday night.

Coach Patrick Hiltz thought the team made a great stride in the right direction.

“A thought we came out on fire and just had fun. If we can start making better connections, then we’ll get better results,” Hiltz said.

After the first stood tied at eight, a kill and service ace broke the set open for the Warhawks.

A kill by junior Taylor Zaeske iced the setfor ULM 25-21.

The Trojans sealed the second scoring eight of the last 10 points after the set stood at 17 all.

Five straight points in the third gave the Trojans a 18-14 lead which led to a 25-20 set victory.

A 10-4 ULM lead to start the fourth vanished as the Trojans stormed back to win the set and match 25-20.

The team takes the court Monday vs Grambling State in Fant-Ewing.
