MU roundup: Volleyball team wins at home over Tulane
HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University defeated Tulane, 3-0, Friday in a Conference USA volleyball match at Cam Henderson Center.
Marshall won by scores of 25-17, 25-21, 25-17.
Laura Der had 15 kills and Katy Schad made 10 defensive digs for the Thundering Herd, now 17-12 overall and 7-8 in the conference.
"I felt like we put a lot of pressure on Tulane in the service game," said Marshall head coach Mitch Jacobs. "We were able to come out and play defense consistently. Bigger than that, we were good on both sides of the ball. We played decent on offense and defense. When mistakes we made, we didn't harp on them we moved on. We executed in key times."
Grace Weaver of Tulane (6-20, 4-11) had 12 digs.
Marshall Senior Day for Katy Schad and Andrea Snipes-Booker is Sunday when the Herd plays UTEP at 1 p.m. to close the regular season.
HUNTINGTON -- Vanderbilt visits Marshall for a women's swimming and diving meet at 11 a.m., Saturday, in Frederick A. Fitch Natatorium at Cam Henderson Center. Admission is free.
