MOSCOW, Idaho – The Mavericks fell to Idaho in four, 25-23, 14-25, 28-30, and 17-25. UT Arlington moves to 8-19 overall and 4-13 in the WAC with the loss.

UT Arlington jumped out to an early 5-1 lead in the first set behind the serve of Shelby Dickson. Back-to-back kills from Charmaine Whitmore increased the Maverick lead to eight, 10-2. The Vandals forced UTA timeouts at 19-16 and 21-23 but the Mavs regrouped to close out the set with a win, 25-23.

The second set started out tied 1-1 but that would be the closest the Mavericks would come to leading as Idaho won, 25-14.

Set three began with a back-and-forth exchange of points and leads. A kill from Stacey Koch put the Mavs at set point, 24-23. The Vandals pushed back to force extra points. Taylor Gross knocked down a kill and kept UTA in the mix at 26-26 in the third set. However, Idaho was able to put the ball and the third set away, 30-28.

Idaho jumped out to an early lead in the fourth set and forced a Maverick timeout at 9-2. An ace from Chelsea Rekieta and another kill from Koch brought UTA within four, 18-14, and pushed the Vandals into a timeout mid-set.
