SAN ANGELO — Junior right side hitter Josie Santos had a career-high 16 kills, but it wasn’t enough as the TWU Pioneers dropped a four-set match Friday at No. 12 Angelo State, losing by scores of 25-19, 25-22, 22-25, 25-13.
The Pioneers are now 13-4 on the season and 7-2 in the Lone Star Conference.
Santos also added 15 digs to record her third straight double-double. Juniors Marcela Alves and Courtnee Davis added 12 and 10 kills, respectively, with Davis adding a game-high 23 digs. Sophomore Hannah Marshall recorded 21 assists and 11 digs.
“We had lot of hitting errors,” TWU head coach Shelly Barberee said. “At the beginning we were little nervous, and we didn’t serve as aggressive as we typically do. We didn’t play bad in the first three sets but fell apart in the fourth.”
The Pioneers play again at 2 p.m. today at Tarleton State.
