FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Macy Catlett and Hannah Phillips dialed up an impressive win over Austin Peay’s top duo this afternoon but the shorthanded University of Tennessee at Martin beach volleyball team fell 4-1 at the Franklin Beach House.
Catlett and Phillips powered through for their first win of the season, posting a 24-26, 21-15, 15-11 victory at No. 1. It marked the second straight match and third time in the last six outings that the freshman duo went into a tiebreaking third set.
Jemima Idemudia and Macy Reigelsperger competed at No. 2, falling 21-14, 21-9 while Hayley Gray and Rachel Noffsinger teamed together at No. 3 but was defeated by a 21-12, 21-18 margin. Austin Peay also earned wins at No. 4 and No. 5 via forfeit.
The Skyhawks conclude their first season of beach volleyball this weekend when they travel to Conway, Ark. for their fourth and final tournament of the spring. UT Martin will be matched up against host Central Arkansas on both April 20-21 and will also square off against Louisiana-Monroe (April 21) and Houston Baptist (April 22).
