Mississippi Stateâ€™s volleyball team lost 3-1, on Saturday to Southeast Missouri in four sets.
The Bulldogs are now 2-2 for the season.
Despite the loss, sophomore Taylor Scott notched a double-double with 19 kills and 15 digs. Joining her teammate in the double-double category was freshman Kimmy Gardiner who picked up 15 kills and 21 digs.
Scott and Gardiner were part of a trio of Bulldogs with double-digit kills totals as Brooke Sassin provided 12 kills to round out the group.
With so many players posting high numbers, coach Jenny Hazelwood says Saturdayâ€™s loss was not about productions, but rather it all comes down to the team learning how to play multiple matches in a short period of time.
â€śWeâ€™ve talked about it a lot with freshmen figuring out how to play a couple matches and do well, then turn around the next day and still play at a high level,â€ť Hazelwood said. â€śWe gave up a lot of points. We had more kills in both matches, more digs in both matches. We were just giving up too many points. At this level, you canâ€™t do that so that is just something we have to learn as a young team and really clean up our side.â€ť
