STARKVILLE – The Mississippi State volleyball team dropped a four-set match to Ole Miss on Wednesday night in the Newell-Grissom Building.

The Bulldogs took the first set 26-24, but the Rebels came back to take the next three sets [25-18, 25-18, 25-23].

“I think we just were trying to find consistency,” head coach Julie Darty Dennis said. “We’re not doing the same thing over and over for long enough periods of time. We just keep talking about being consistently good volleyball players and following our game plan, and tonight we didn’t do that.”
