The Mean Green finished the Boise State Tournament this weekend with a win over Sacramento State University and two losses against Boise State University and the University of Idaho.

Sophomore Carnae Dillard put on an impressive performance with 14 kills as UNT swept Sacramento State in the first game on Friday (25-22, 25-18, 29-27).

The Mean Green suffered a disappointing loss in its second game on Friday in a 3-1 to Boise State (21-25, 16-25, 29-27, 19-25).

Despite a high offensive effort in the lone game on Saturday, UNT fell to Idaho 3-2 (23-25, 25-22, 20-25, 25-22, 16-14).  Three players for the Mean Green tallied double-digit kills, including a career-high 20 for junior outside hitter Hanna Forst.  Unfortunately, the team could not finish in the final set.

“The girls performed well, especially on offense,” head coach Andrew Palileo said in a press release. “Unfortunately we were not able to pull out the win, but I saw a lot of good things going forward from my team.”

The Mean Green will have a week to prepare for Louisiana State University at the Houston Invitational Tournament on Sept. 20.

Editor’s note: The head coach and players were not available to the media over the weekend.
