WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

No. 23 Angelo State used a precision attack to take out Midwestern State in a sweep in Lone Star Conference play Saturday afternoon at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.
 
It was the third straight loss for MSU which was eliminated from LSC postseason contention while falling to 13-15 on the season and 6-12 in league play.
 
The Mustangs lagged three games behind the trio of Texas Woman's, Eastern New Mexico and Western New Mexico who are tied for sixth with a 9-9 mark in LSC play. Midwestern has just two conference matches remaining.
 
The Rambelles, who improved to 19-8 and 11-7, hit .358 as a team paced by redshirt-freshman Bailey Drum's 13-kill, 11-dig performance. ASU senior All-American Brianna Sotello added 10 kills, but was the only 'Belle among five with 10-or-more attacks to hit less than .231.
 
Midwestern battled in the opening set combining for 13 kills and hitting .235 as a team. Senior Meghan Bettis spurred the early effort slamming home six kills on her nine attacks without error, but the Mustangs were unable to take the first set.
 
Bettis would finish with eight kills for the match and hit .368 overall, middle blockers Addison Semer (.231) and Raven Presley (.500) had six kills each.
 
Angelo State remained steady throughout hitting .379, .361 and .333 as a team for the 25-22, 25-15, 25-12 win.
