Texas State pushed its winning streak to 11 after defeating Georgia State, 3-0 (25-16, 25-14, 25-21) on Saturday at GSU Sports Arena. 

The Bobcats (16-5, 7-0 Sun Belt) jumped out to a 12-6 lead in the opening set over the Panthers (5-10, 2-3). Texas State rolled to a 25-16 win in the first set. 

The Bobcats saw themselves hold a 16-8 lead midway through the second set. Texas State cruised its way to a 25-14 victory in the second frame to take a 2-0 match advantage. 

Georgia State gave its best fight in the third frame. Early in the period, the Bobcats and Eagles had five ties. But Texas State used an 8-2 run to grab a 16-10 advantage. The Bobcats were leading 20-13, but the Panthers fought back to get within 23-21. Texas State, however, halted Georgia State’s run and claimed the third set 25-21 to win the match.

Junior outside hitter/setter Cheyenne Huskey led the Bobcats with 10 kills. Senior middle blocker Madison Daigle recorded nine kills. Freshman setter Emily DeWalt nearly recorded a triple-double with 29 assists, 15 digs and eight kills.
