Hoosiers slam Southeastern Louisiana

The Hoosiers won their season-opening match Friday, beating Southeastern Louisiana 25-13, 25-18, 25-17 in their first of three matches in this weekend’s Flo Hyman Invitational in Houston, Texas.

IU totaled 42 kills to 10 errors in their straight-set victory, amassing a .386 hit percentage. Southeastern Louisiana only managed 25 kills and recorded 15 errors for a .114 hit percentage.

Senior middle blocker Ashley Benson led IU with 11 kills. Freshman outside hitter Jordan Haverly shined from the service line in her IU debut, leading the Hoosiers with four aces.

Two of Haverly’s aces came in the first set, with fifth-year senior and former women’s basketball player Whitney Thomas adding four kills in the match’s initial contest.

The second set stayed close early with the score at 15-15, but two kills each from Haverly and Thomas, along with a Southeastern Louisiana attack error, allowed the Hoosiers to pull away.

Haverly added another ace and five more kills in the third set, and sophomore setter Mary Chaudoin added eight assists.

The Hoosiers’ next match will take place Saturday at 12:30 p.m. against New Orleans, and they will play again at 8:30 p.m. against host Houston.
