ARLINGTON, Texas – UT Arlington volleyball opened the Hilton Maverick Classic with a 3-1 loss to UTSA at College Park Center Friday night.

The Mavericks finished with 10 serving errors and two aces on the night. Shelby Dickson led the Mavericks with 13 kills, while Charmaine Whitmore and Hannah Baptiste combined for 17.

"It's a fine line for a coach to ask your team to be a more aggressive serving team and then yell at them for missing serves," UT Arlington coach Diane Seymour said. "So we walk a fine line with that."

UTSA started with a 4-0 run until Dickson picked up the first point for the Mavs with a kill. The Mavericks went on their own 4-0 run after an Amanda Welsh kill, but it wasn't enough as the Roadrunners took the first set 25-16.

The Mavericks started the second set with a 5-0 run. McKenzie Adams tied it up at 19 with a kill for the Roadrunners, but Dickson came back with two kills for the 21-20 lead. The lead wouldn't last long as Adam tied the score with another kill for UTSA. The Roadrunner came within one, but a kill from Whitmore won the set for the Mavs, 25-23.

Both teams started the third set strong, but UTSA was able to pull ahead early and continued with momentum to a 25-15 set win over the Mavs. The Mavericks stayed within reach of UTSA in the fourth set, but the Roadrunners pushed ahead to win 25-20.

The Mavericks are back in action Saturday as they take on Mississippi Valley State at 1:30 p.m. and Texas A&M Corpus Christi at 7 p.m. to close out the Hilton Maverick Classic.
