COLUMBIA, S.C. – The LSU sand volleyball team fell 3-2 to the College of Charleston in its first road match Friday at the Gamecock Invitational.
 
"We did take another step forward, but really need to understand what it means to truly compete in the sand," associate head coach Russell Brock said. "Tomorrow will be a big test to see if we have the ability to rise to the mental challenge."


Catey Warren and Kari Fidelhotlz of the College of Charleston took the first point of the day with a 21-14, 21-18 win on court four over Malorie Pardo and Mimi Eugene.

Meghan Mannari and Katie Lindelow retaliated with a 21-16, 21-16 first-court victory over the Cougars' Darcy Dorton and Emily Neideffer.

Court three kept the momentum going as Victoria Boraski and Cati Leak notched a 21-16, 21-18 victory on court three over Sloane White and Andi Zbojniewicz.

The College of Charleston gained another point as Emma Hiller and Katarina Raicevic weren't able to overcome the Cougars' Maddie Hills and Callie McKown and fell 21-16, 21-16 on court five.

With all eyes on court two, Kaitlin Hatcher and Helen Boyle fought back from a 21-15 first set loss. Despite overcoming multiple match points, the duo eventually fell 27-25 to Cara Howley and Melissa Morello.

The Lady Tigers will face two competitors Saturday, taking on Oregon at 12:30 p.m. CT and South Carolina at 6:00 p.m. CT.
