SOMERS, Wis. – The Michigan Tech volleyball team dropped a pair of matches Saturday (Sept. 10) to wrap up play at the UW-Parkside Tournament. The Huskies fell 3-1 to St. Cloud State and 3-0 to No. 4 Minnesota Duluth.
"We had a tough day today," Tech coach Matt Jennings said. "We let the first match of the day get away from us, which was very disappointing. In both matches, we made too many unforced errors and compounded it by not executing."
