North Texas sweeps UTEP Volleyball 3 – 0

The UTEP volleyball team fell to North Texas 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-21) on Friday night in Memorial Gym.

UTEP is now 6-10 overall, and 0-2 in Conference USA as North Texas moves to 10-7 and 2-0 in C-USA.

Sophomore Coline Coessens paced the Miners’ offense with a team-high 12 kills while pitching in nine digs and an assisted block. Junior Lindsey Larson aided the offense with 27 assists while senior Ashley Peak led the team with 11 digs.

North Texas stormed out to a 15-9 lead over UTEP.  Senior Talia Jones hammered in six kills to bring the Miners to a two-point differential at 17-19. However, it would not be enough to stop the Mean Green, as North Texas took the stanza, 25-19.

The Miners picked up their intensity and applied more pressure as the second set had 15 tied scores and five lead changes.  A kill by Coessens tied the set at 21’s but the Mean Green pulled a 4-0 run to close out the set, 25-21.

Much like the second set, the teams fought point-for-point as the score tied eight times. A service error by the Mean Green tied the score at 19’s but a 6-2 run allowed the Mean Green to extend their lead and ultimately claim the set 25-21, and the match 3-0.

North Texas has had amazing year so far and we expected them to come out fired up,” head coach Holly Watts said. “We wanted to come out aggressive ourselves and we were unable to do that even though our hitting percentage ended up better than usual”.

The Miners will continue in action on Sunday as they host Middle Tennessee State at 12:30 p.m. (MT) in Memorial Gym.
