Fourteenth ranked Westmont Volleyball (22-10) found it tough going against the top-ranked team in the NAIA, falling to Texas-Brownsville (33-0) in straight sets (25-14, 25-21, 25-11). The match took place on the second day of Pool Play in the NAIA National Championship in Sioux City, Iowa.
“Texas-Brownsville is a very good team with a lot of heavy arms and a lot of height,” said Westmont head coach Patti Cook. “They definitely showed why they are the number one team in the nation. They have a lot of offensive power and we couldn’t stop them.
“We were hoping to get a little more offense going from our side, but (UTB) had a nice big block and some very powerful servers.”
Ciena Colburn, Madison Serrano and Marie Trudelle led the Warriors’ offense with seven kills apiece.
