WKU opened the match with a 21-7 lead in the first game, but hitting errors brought the Lady Raiders back into the game. Despite a charge by MT, Western held on to take a 30-19 win in the opener.
The two teams traded point-for-point in the second game, playing to a 21-all tie late in the game. With the score knotted at 28-all, Lady Topper Crystal Towler came through with a kill to put Western ahead by one. Middle Tennessee followed with a hitting error to give WKU a 30-28 win in the second game.
Game three was close as well, with the Lady Toppers holding a slim 15-14 lead midway through the game. Western pulled away with a 12-7 run prior to a MT timeout to seal the game and earn the Lady Toppers their eighth sweep victory of the season.
Middle Tennessee's KeKe Dekard recorded a team-high 12 kills in the losing effort. The Lady Raiders return to the road next weekend for a swing through Arkansas taking on Arkansas-Little Rock and Arkansas State.
