Bakersfield, Calif.—For the third consecutive match, Hanah Blume hit above .300 for the San José State volleyball team, but the Spartans lost a non-conference match at CSU Bakersfield, 3-1 (19-25, 25-22, 25-14, 25-21) Sunday night.
Blume hit .326 for the match with 19 kills on 43 attempts and just five errors. She led the team with 19 kills and had her 10th double-double of the season with 14 digs. Blume also had two block assists in the match.
Mary Alice O'Reilly was the other Spartan in double-figure kills with 10. She hit .474 in the match with 19 attempts and only one hitting error. She also had two digs and two block assists.
“Hanah is having a great senior year,” said Spartan head coach Oscar Crespo. “I am proud of the way she is playing and really carrying our team and the points we are scoring right now.
“However, we need everyone else to step up on the court for us. We need to get everyone involved in the match and mature quickly. We had leads in the final three sets and either fell apart or could not answer back to runs our opponent made. We have the physical ability to play with any team, we just need to sustain our intensity throughout the match.
San José State returns home for two matches later this week. The Spartans host Air Force on Thursday at 7 p.m., and New Mexico on Saturday at 1 p.m. Both matches will be played at The Event Center.
CSU Bakersfield def. San Jose Sate – 3-1 (19-25, 25-22, 25-14, 25-21).
