CANYON, Texas - The Lady Buffs (24-4, 8-0) remain undefeated in the Lone Star Conference after defeating Cameron University in four sets with scores of 25-10, 21-25, 25-11, and 25-18. Cameron broke a 27 set winning streak by the Lady Buffs against conference opponents, dating back to Oct. 27, 2007 when WT lost sets two and three to Cameron.

Melissa Harper (Junior, Peoria, Ariz.) totaled 17 kills in 21 attempts with no errors for a career high hitting percentage of .810. She is now ranked eighth in the school records for hitting percentage in a match. Laura Prinsen (Junior, Spring, Texas) led the team in kills 19 in 39 attemtps for a hitting percentage of .410. Defensively, Ashley Dyer (Junior, Perryton, Texas) led the team in block assists, tallying a career high of eight block assists and tying for tenth in school records for block assists in a match.

"Our offense was effecient and our block was strong," said head coach Tony Graystone. "We didn't manage the second set very well, but we got back in control in sets three and four and played good volleyball. Melissa was good in transition and controlled the net and Laura was unstoppable on the backside. Ashley's job is to block and help protect the serve and she works very hard at that."

The Lady Buffs are on the road next week, traveling to Portales, New Mexico on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 8:00 p.m. to take on Eastern New Mexico for more Lone Star Conference action. WT will then take on East Central University on Thursday, Oct. 30 and Southeastern Oklahoma on Saturday, Nov. 1.
