Wichita State defeated Kent State in four sets (25-15, 25-20, 23-25, 25-14) to open up the Kansas Invitational on Friday afternoon in Lawerence, Kansas. The victory extended WSU’s winning streak to four games to open up the season.
The victory was WSU’s first action since withdrawing from the SD Invite due to “COVID-19 related issues” within the program last weekend. This weekend, the Shockers are without four starters from their last match and traveled with 12 of the 17 players on its roster.
“I’m extremely happy with our patience and when that team pushed coming back and taking that third set, we were down big and came back,” head coach Chris Lamb said.
