Box Score

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - I-25 rival New Mexico State slid past the Lobo volleyball team, 3-0, tonight, extending UNM's losing streak vs. Aggies to seven games, the longest in series history. The undefeated Aggies (11-0) dropped the Lobos to 4-7 overall with 30-25, 30-22, 30-14 wins.

Errors were the only thing that separated the Aggies from the Lobos in game one as both teams recorded 16 kills on 45 attempts, 14 assists and six blocks. Freshman Anna Lehne kept UNM close with six kills and two errors on 14 attacks. She also stuffed back three blocks, providing New Mexico with eight of the team's points.

Nine errors early in game two gave NMSU a quick 10 point edge (18-8) over the Lobos. The Lobos cut the lead to five (21-16) thanks to two kills from freshman Rose Morris and an uplifting ace from junior Tanna Taylor. But errors were costly again for New Mexico, giving NMSU three of its last four points.

The Aggies wasted no time in game three, charging out to an 11-3 lead. Six straight Lobo errors helped extend NMSU's advantage to 13 (19-6). Lehne put down two kills late in the game but it wasn't enough as the Aggies finished off the Lobos with a 4-0 run.

Lehne led the Lobos with 11 kills and three blocks. Sophomore Sarah Kwasigroch dished out 26 assists with 11 digs and three blocks while classmate Gayle Tripp recorded a team-high 12 digs. Amber Simpson and Jackie Choi led New Mexico State with 10 kills and 35 assists, respectively.
