RICHARDSON – The UT Tyler volleyball team was eliminated from the American Southwest Conference Championship tournament with a four-set loss (25-13, 26-28, 14-25, 21-25) to Concordia on Friday at the UTD Activity Center.

The Patriots (22-8) came into the postseason ranked No. 8 in the NCAA Division III West Region, but with two losses in the ASC tournament will need some other teams to also lose to hear their name called when the NCAA Division III Championship tournament announcements are made on Monday at 11:30 a.m. on UT Tyler opened the ASC tournament with a four-set loss to Hardin-Simmons on Thursday and are now 5-14 all-time in eight ASC tournament appearances. 

UT Tyler senior Brieanne Brown led the Patriots with 12 kills and also had three blocks in the loss, while Samantha Lee contributed seven kills and blocks. Brown now has 949 kills in her career as the lone senior on this year’s team. Reighanna Guzman had 30 of the 33 UT Tyler assists in the match and also had seven digs. Defensively, Makenna Bartlett, Kyana Alvarez and Brianna Bellehumeur led the team with 12 digs each and Emily Robison added eight more.

The Patriots jumped out to an impressive start with the 25-13 first-set win that came with a .370 attacking percentage. That would slip though as the Tornados took the final three sets with UT Tyler hitting .048 in the second set, -.143 in the third and being limited to a .023 attack in the final set. Concordia also had a 13-11 advantage at the net and a 74-59 dig margin over the Patriots.

The Tornados were limited to a .122 attack by the Patriots, but overcame it to improve to 18-13 and advance to play ETBU at 7:30 p.m. in their second elimination match of the day. The Tigers advanced out of a Friday morning elimination match with a five-set win over Hardin-Simmons.
