MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University volleyball team travels to Lubbock, Texas, for a Big 12 Conference match against Texas Tech on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 2 p.m., at the United Spirit Arena.

“We are looking forward to getting back on the court and competing again,” says coach Jill Kramer. “Our team is doing a great job of staying disciplined, communicating well and being aggressive at crunch time – things that great teams and competitors do.

“Those are just a few of the behaviors we need to continue to define our team by. Tomorrow’s match gives us another opportunity to do so.”

The Mountaineers (14-2, 1-1) fell at TCU on Wednesday night, while the Red Raiders (7-10, 0-2) were swept at home by Iowa State.

“Our team has really enjoyed our time together on the road this week,” Kramer says. “These extended trips allow us to spend quality time with one another, which I believe strengthens relationships within the team.”

Junior middle blocker Evyn McCoy had a career-high 11 blocks against the Horned Frogs on Wednesday, while joining sophomores Nikki Attea and Hannah Sackett with double-digit kills.

Sophomore Caleah Wells leads the Mountaineers with a .294 hitting percentage, and sophomore Brittany Sample has 596 assists for a 10.46 assists per set average on the season.

The Red Raiders, who will be looking for their first Big 12 Conference win of the season, are led by junior outside hitter Breeann David’s 4.12 kills per set average.

Texas Tech leads the all-time series between the two schools 4-0, claiming both matches last season by a score of 3-1.
