Sarah Wadsworth led the team with seven kills, while Brynn Brown contributed 19 assists and Peyton Neal had 13 digs.

Marshall found themselves on the losing end once again on Saturday, losing to the Eagles in three sets. Despite the loss, coach Ari Aganus acknowledged the team’s effort and fighting spirit.

“It was a tough weekend for us,” Aganus said. “We battled but came up short to a very aggressive Georgia Southern team. At times, different pieces clicked, just not all at the same time. Pieces we worked on all week showed up. Now, we just have to really focus on consistency. This team has so much fight and belief. We will get where we know we can be.”

The first set featured multiple lead changes and tied scores, but Georgia Southern managed to secure a narrow 25-22 win. The second set saw the Eagles dominating with a 25-15 victory. In the third set, Marshall fought hard but ultimately fell short, losing 25-20.

Brynn Brown took charge on the court with 17 assists, while Peyton Neal contributed with 16 digs and Kylee Stokes recorded nine kills.
