BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Eastern Florida’s volleyball team dropped to 6-10 overall and 0-2 in the Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference on Tuesday, falling in straight sets to Miami Dade College.
The scores were 17-25, 18-25 and 21-25 at the Titan Field House on the Melbourne Campus.
Miami Dade improved to 5-5 overall and 2-0 in the conference.
Eastern Florida made a run at the perennial conference and state power in each set but could not press its advantages, falling victim to well-placed volleys and unforced errors.
“We still need to be able to close things down,” said Eastern Florida head coach Andrea Rasmussen. “We had numerous opportunities to get ahead and put things away but we let them slip away.
“This is the time of the season when you have to kill a volley, a point, a game, a set. We’ve got to get to where we can do that.
“That being said the players put forth a good effort and we can build on that. There is a lot of volleyball left to play.”
Statistically for Eastern Florida sophomore Treasure Ingram had 11 kills and classmate Mariana Dal Pozzo had nine. Sophomore Juliana Torres and freshman Malvis Ortiz had five each.
The Titans next make conference visits to Palm Beach State at 6 p.m. Thursday in Lake Worth and Broward College at 7 p.m. Friday in Davie.
They return home to face non-conference foe Polk State College at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29. Admission is free.
