NCAA Volleyball: Troup product a defensive ace for UT-Tyler



Jessica Ross, a Troup High School product, is off to a hot start as a member of the University of Tyler volleyball team.

The junior defensive specialist amassed 25 digs in nine sets as the UT-Tyler ladies opened the season over the weekend by going 2-1 in the Texas Lutheran Bulldog Classic.

The Patriots logged 3-0 wins over Concordia-Austin and St. Joseph's of New York, while losing, 3-1, to host Texas Lutheran.

The Patriot spikers will home the home portion of their schedule at noon Friday by hosting Centenary College in the first game of the UT-Tyler Tournament, which runs through Saturday at the Herrington Patriot Center.
