HOUGHTON, Mich. – The Michigan Tech volleyball team completed the season sweep of Lake Superior State with a 3-0 win over the Lakers Friday (Nov. 9).
“I was glad to win tonight in three,” said head coach Matt Jennings. “We knew Lake State is a young team and prone to mistakes, but they have playing really well lately. I told our team after we were down in the third that they need to go get what they want.”
The Huskies hit a match-high .310 to win the first set 25-19. Tech’s offense continued to dominate hitting .233 to win the second 25-17. The Black and Gold rallied from an early deficit to win the third set 25-19.
