In its home opener, the Marshall University volleyball team defeated Eastern Kentucky University 3-1 to remain undefeated at 4-0.

Marshall head coach Mitch Jacobs said getting the win was great for the team, but he is not satisfied with the team’s overall performance.

“We’ve got to work harder on the defensive side of the ball,” Jacobs said. “We are very inconsistent on the defensive side. I thought we were unfocused.”

Senior Ashley Arnold said despite inconsistencies on the defensive end, she thinks the team is improving.

“I feel like we did really good as a team,” Arnold said. “We’re still building and getting better. It’s still early in the season. We did lose focus which is something that we need to work on.”

“We’re still building and getting better. It’s still early in the season.””

Arnold said she is impressed with her teammates chemistry this early in the season. She added that while the team tries not to underestimate its opponents, it is looking forward to its match against conference-foe Western Kentucky University, which is scheduled for Sept. 23.

The Herd’s next match is set for 4 p.m. Friday against the University of New Hampshire. The game will be played in Fairfield, Connecticut and will be the team’s first match of the Fairfield Invitational.
