KU volleyball falls to Iowa State

The Kansas volleyball team suffered its second straight loss Saturday afternoon at Horejsi Family Athletics Center when Iowa State took the match in straight sets (25-16, 25-23, 25-16) during a clash between conference foes.

Kansas (13-6, 6-2 Big 12) was forced to alter its game plan early when freshman setter Camryn Ennis exited the match in the first set with an injury to her ankle. Iowa State (11-10, 4-4 Big 12) stuck to its defensive approach and used its blocking effort at the net to disrupt the Jayhawks’ offense that swung .075 on the day with 22 attacking errors.

“We had to completely change our system with Camryn (Ennis’) injury,” head coach Ray Bechard said in a team release. “We played a team that offensively was playing at a high level. When we could not create opportunities on our first contact our passing was not good.”

Kansas travels to Baylor at 12 p.m. Saturday.
