FORT MYERS, Fla. (Sept. 27, 2008) - The ETSU volleyball team dropped a hard fought match to Florida Gulf Coast Saturday afternoon at Alico Arena in Fort Myers, Fla., 3-1 (9-25, 25-23, 24-26, 22-25).

 

The Eagles jumped to an early lead taking the first set, but the Bucs looked to have taken control of the match after taking the second set and jumping out in front in the third set. With the serve for set point in the third set, the Bucs made a couple unforced errors and let the set and match slip away as FGCU took advantage of the ETSU errors.

 

The Bucs (5-9, 2-5 A-Sun) were led by McKayla Barber (Columbus, Ind.) who tallied 13 kills in the match and had a .478 attack percentage. Junior Amanda Youell (Middleburg, Fla.) had another double-double as she collected 19 assists and 11 kills.

 

Whitney Cogburn (Kingsport, Tenn.) led the team with 20 assists and had seven kills, while Jen Neice (Allen, Texas) led ETSU in the back with 19 digs.

 

The Bucs are back in action on Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. as they will face Kennesaw State at home in Brooks Gym. Please visit www.ETSUBucs.com for more information on ETSU volleyball or any other Buccaneer athletic team.
