BOONE, N.C. - Middle Tennessee volleyball (1-0) opened the 2006 season with a 3-0 (30-20, 30-27, 30-19) win over Radford (0-1) in the Mast General Store Appalachian State Classic on Friday.
"This was a good win for us," said Head Coach Matt Peck. "The team was excited to play someone other than themselves and I saw a lot of positive things in the first match of the season."
Sophomore Ashley Adams led both teams with 10 kills and recorded a .412 attack percentage. She also had four block assists.
As a team, the Blue Raiders committed 19 errors and forced Radford to log in 30 errors to just 31 kills. Middle Tennessee ended the game with 43 kills.
Four newcomers, including three freshmen, saw action in the match. Transfer Jessica Robinson played in two games and recorded five kills. Freshman Ashley Waugh played in all three games and had five digs. Setter Leslie Clark notched 12 set assists in the game she played in and in one game Ashley Mead had one service ace and one block assist.
"Ashley Asberry had a really nice match," Peck said. "Overall I think we passed really well and that is what this team has to do since we have such strong hitters."
Middle Tennessee returns to action on Saturday as the Blue Raiders face Marshall at 11 a.m. and host Appalachian State at 6 p.m.
