Aggies edge Jayhawks

October 16, 2003


— Four Kansas University volleyball players had double-digit kills Wednesday night, but Texas A&M; proved too powerful in a 3-2 win over the Jayhawks at G. Rollie White Coliseum. The Aggies won, 30-18, 32-34, 30-24, 29-31, 15-11.

The Jayhawks (12-7, 4-4 Big 12 Conference) are 0-16 all-time against Texas A&M.;

Sophomore Josi Lima led KU with 17 kills, and she added a career-high 16 digs. Senior Sarah Rome added 16 kills, and juniors Ashley Michaels and Lindsey Morris added 13 and 12.

Sophomore Andi Rozum earned 50 assists, and libero Jill Dorsey added 19 digs.

KU was without leading hitter Janaina Correa, as the freshman continues to battle an undisclosed injury.

"I was proud of our balanced offense with four players having 12 or more kills, and how they really battled in such a hostile environment," KU coach Ray Bechard said.

The Jayhawks play host to Iowa State at 7 p.m. Friday at Horejsi Center. Fans who attend will have seats saved for KU men's basketball Late Night in the Phog. At the conclusion of the match, fans will be given wristbands, escorted into the fieldhouse and seated in sections 16 and 17.
