JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 22, 2015) – The East Tennessee State University volleyball team won its home opener Tuesday evening against Tennessee State, 3-0 (25-11, 25-21, 25-23). With the victory, the Bucs extend their winning streak to six and their record moves to 9-4 overall.

Junior Briana Allmon (Flower Mound, Texas) and sophomore Rylee Milhorn (Kingsport, Tenn.) led the Bucs Tuesday evening as each posted a double-double. Allmon totaled 12 kills and 12 digs, while Milhorn posted 12 kills to go along with 10 digs. The duo of Allmon and Milhorn have combined for 10 double-doubles this season.

ETSU rolled in the first set as it won it by a final score of 25-11. The Bucs’ offense was firing on all cylinders as they hit a collective .652 with no errors in 23 attempts. On the flip side of the ball, the Bucs also held the Tigers’ offense in check holding them to a .077 hitting percentage in the first.

After struggling in the first, Tennessee State rebounded with a stellar effort in the second but the Bucs still won the frame, 25-21. ETSU trailed by as many as five points (11-6) in the stanza but Mariah McPartland (Boone, Iowa), who had three kills in the second, and the rest of the Bucs rallied to take a 2-0 lead.

Unlike the first two sets, the two teams struggled offensively in the third hitting .133 and .026. With neither offense clicking, the two teams exchanged leads several times in the set with the Bucs coming out on top in the end, 25-23. A key for ETSU in the third was it totaled five blocks in the frame after notching just two blocks through the first two sets.

Next Up: ETSU takes its 9-4 record and six-match winning streak to Greenville, S.C. Friday where it opens conference play at Furman. First serve against the Paladins is scheduled for 6 p.m.
