ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The University of New Mexico volleyball team finished the 2008 spring season with a 10-3 record, following last weekend's 3-1 performance at the UNLV Spring Tournament. The Lobos earned 2-0 wins over Arizona State, UNLV and Montana and lost a tough three-game match to Arizona.
"The UNLV Tournament was very good for us," said Lobo head coach Jeff Nelson. "We had the opportunity to play some very good teams and had a lot of success. I was particularly impressed with our blocking and the way we attacked the ball. Jeanne Fairchild continued her high level of play, while Anna Lehne, Jade Michaelsen, and Kelsi Phillips had great performances. The tournament was a great team effort and a fantastic way to close out our spring schedule."
The Lobos will host one more event before taking finals and preparing for their China Trip at the end of May.
