KENNESAW, Ga. – The Clemson volleyball team fell in four sets (25-20, 21-25, 18-25, 15-25) to Kennesaw State at the KSU Convocation Center Tuesday night. Freshman libero Torie Frederick registered a match-high 21 digs, tallying her fourth consecutive match with at least 20 digs. With the win, the Owls improved to 6-0 on the season, while Clemson fell to 4-3.
The Tigers grabbed the lead early before securing a comfortable 17-9 cushion midway through the first set. Clemson would go on to win the set, 25-20, as freshmen Ashtynne Alberts and Solei Thomas, and redshirt sophomore Brooke Bailey combined for eight kills. Frederick nabbed six of her 21 digs in the opening set.
Despite gaining the early momentum, the Tigers went on to drop the next three sets, snapping their three-match winning streak in the process.
Up next, Clemson hosts the annual Big Orange Bash tournament Friday and Saturday (Sept. 7-8). The Tigers face UAB Friday night at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Clemson will play host to Troy (12:30 p.m.) and North Dakota (7 p.m.). All three matches are set to stream on ACC Network Extra.
