MIAMI, Okla. -- The Cottey College Comets volleyball team went out on the road Wednesday and put on what head coach Marla Kannady Foreman called a "very disappointing" performance.

Against a Northeast Oklahoma roster full of almost all sophomores, the Comets appeared to be simply overwhelmed and ultimately lost the match in three sets by the final scores of 25-8, 25-10 and 25-16. The Comets certainly didn't have a wealth of highlights on the night as they were only able to record a total of 15 kills in all three sets combined. According to Foreman, the best kill percentage her squad put together on the night was 17 percent in the third set.

The Comets worked on blocking for more than a week leading up to Wednesday's match, but it didn't seem to help as they were able to record just four, led by Erica Phillips's two.

Hannah Wilson led the Comets with six assists on the night, while Kasey Hall recorded four of Cottey's 15 kills. Kymee Bair led the defensive effort with 10 digs.

With that loss, the Comets fell to 1-3 on the season and are scheduled to be back in action tonight, returning home to take on Labette County Community College at 6:30 p.m.
