The SMU women’s volleyball team hosted UTA and OU on the Hilltop for scrimmages to kick off the spring season on Saturday afternoon.
The Mustangs defeated UTA in just three sets and beat them in an extra fourth set for more practice. After a short break, the team faced OU in Moody Coliseum. The Mustangs won the first two sets then struggled and gave up the third. However, the team remained composed and put away the fourth set for the win.
The team communicated and handled problems as a unit, which helped them defeat their opponents. Despite it being the team’s first time back in action since the fall, they worked together like a well oiled machine.
Last season’s MVP and Best Defensive Player Morgan Heise handled UTA and OU on the defensive end with help in the back from Izzy Sotelo, whose serves were key to disorganizing the other team’s formation.
The Mustangs will play at Texas on April 3, compete in the Collegiate F.A.S.T. Tournament in Houston on April 11, and conclude the spring season at home April 21 against North Texas in Moody Coliseum.
