SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Hofstra entered the day with a perfect 7-0 record, but fell to Kansas State earlier in the day, and then ran into a red-hot South Dakota State squad in the evening, as the Jackrabbits handed the Pride their second loss of the day and the season with a 3-0 sweep.
“We were more focused tonight defensively, and we were sharp in our offensive execution,” head coach Phil McDaniel said after the win, which boosts the Jacks record to 8-2 on the season by the set scores of 25-19, 25-18 and 25-19.
Kelli Fiegen again led the Jackrabbit attack, posting 14 kills with one error in 22 total attacks for an impressive .591 attack percentage. She also added six block assists. Kaitlin Klingemann added 11 kills, with a .474 hitting percentage (11-2-19)-.078.
Kelsie Wills led the Pride with nine kills in the loss, which drops Hofstra to 7-2 on the season.
The Jackrabbits return to action with two more matches on Saturday, starting with Kansas State at 2 p.m., followed by a match against tournament host Missouri State at 7:30 p.m.
