Miner Volleyball falls to UTSA

SAN ANTONIO – The UTEP Volleyball team (7-8, 0-2) fell to UTSA (9-6, 1-1) in four sets (25-18, 13-25, 14-25, 17-25), 3-1, on Sunday afternoon at the Convocation Center.

Mallory Yost led the squad with nine kills on a .500 hitting clip. Kenidy Howard produced five blocks at the net, and Serena Patterson locked in 10 digs for the Orange and Blue defense.

Izela Alvarez and Syenna Masaki both added two service aces each in the effort.

The Miners dominated the first frame from the jump. Howard was a force at the net, racking up four blocks in the set. The freshman’s defensive play helped UTEP cruise to a 25-18 victory.

UTSA bounced back in a big way, defeating the Orange and Blue by a score of 25-13 to even up the set count, 1-1, after two.

The roadrunners carried this play into the third frame, collecting a 25-14 victory to take a 2-1 set advantage.

The Miners could not build any momentum for themselves the rest of the way, as they fell in the fourth frame, 25-17, and dropped the match.

Next up, the Miners will take on the Roadrunners in their first home-conference match of the year on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 1 p.m. MT
