The Miss. Valley State Devilette volleyball team finished second place in the 2010 Texas Southern Season Opener over the weekend.  After falling to St. Thomas (TX) in four sets (26-28, 25-23, 23-25, 22-25), MVSU downed Arkansas-Pine Bluff in four sets and host Texas Southern in five sets.

During their tournament opener, Lonnie Hoff had 17 kills and 15 digs while Maura Moed added 16 kills and five blocks.  However, close set scores did not lead to a win for the Devilettes.

In the win over Texas Southern (25-15, 22-25, 25-21, 21-15, 15-11), a tough contest went back and forth on scoring and momentum.  Moed had a match-high 21 kills while Hoff and Bry Williams had 18 and 11 kills respectively.
