ST. LOUIS -
For the second straight season, Missouri-St. Louis found a way to
upset Northern Kentucky University on the volleyball court.
Louis attacked at a .343 clip Thursday night and stunned No. 22
NKU, 30-25, 30-27, 30-22, in the Mark Twain Building. The Tritons
- who had never beaten the Norse until a three-game victory last
season - improved to 8-11 overall, 5-4 in the GLVC.
NKU, which impressively
won two big home matches against Southern Illinois at Edwardsville
and Southern Indiana last weekend, dropped to 17-5 overall, 6-3
in the GLVC. The Norse hit .260 for the match, including just .194
in the opening game. Missouri-St. Louis closed out the victory by
hitting .395 in the third game.
Liz Holmes paced
NKU with 15 kills and a .406 hitting percentage. Kristina Eisenmenger
and Tristen Dye each added 13 kills for the Norse offensive attack,
while Elizabeth Droessler attacked at a .667 clip with four kills.
NKU junior setter
Natalie Forbes finished with 41 assists and 11 digs. The Norse now
lead the all-time series with Missouri-St. Louis, 17-2.
NKU plays at
Missouri-Rolla at 8 p.m. Friday night, and concludes the road trip
Saturday afternoon with a match at Quincy. The Norse return home
next week and will meet Rockhurst at 7 p.m. Thursday in Regents
Hall. NKU also plays host to Drury at 7 p.m. Friday.
