MSU Volleyball Wins at SWOSU

Kat Molloy and Leah Lychock notched season highs as Midwestern State snapped a 10-game skid on the road with a 25-14, 25-22, 15-25, 25-21 win over Southwestern Oklahoma Monday night at the Pioneer Cellular Event Center in Weatherford.

Molloy notched her third double-double of the season with 16 kills and 18 digs, while Lychock put down 11 playing in just her 11th match of the season to lead MSU to its first road victory since taking down Dallas Baptist in five sets on Sept. 9.

Midwestern did it with defense led by senior libero Casey Fletcher, who logged 30 digs for the fourth time this season to lead back row play as the Mustangs limited the Bulldogs to a .069 team attack percentage.

The Eddy, Texas native moved into sixth place on the school's all-time digs list with 1,440 moving past former standout setter Allison Schreiber, who notched 1,432 digs from 2005-08.

With 560 digs this season, Fletcher also jumped into sixth on the program's single season chart as only former standout defensive specialists Shay Velasquez and All American Kiara Jordan have logged more.

Fletcher needs 40 to become just the second player to log 600 digs in a season and the first since Jordan posted 687 in 2011.

Redshirt-freshman Angel Summers logged six total blocks to lead the Mustangs at the net.

The Mustangs survived 15 total team blocks by SWOSU, which was paced by Kiley Brennfoerder's 10-block effort.

Midwestern State closes the regular season Friday night at Texas A&M-Kingsville. First serve from Steinke Center is set for 7 p.m.

The Mustangs must win Friday night and Texas A&M-Commerce must lose matches at Eastern New Mexico and West Texas A&M this weekend for MSU to advance to LSC Postseason Tournament play.
