THE BASICS

Score: Central Arkansas 5, ULM 0

Teams: ULM (19-11)

            Central Arkansas (14-3)

Location: Conway, Ark.

CONWAY, Ark. - The ULM beach volleyball team fell 5-0 to tournament host Central Arkansas on Saturday afternoon in the Warhawks' final regular season match of the spring.

NOTABLES

-The Warhawks fell to Central Arkansas in two sets at each of the top five positions.  

-Despite falling short of a 20-win season, ULM closed out the season with one of its best seasons yet. The 19-win season this spring is ULM's most in a single season in the program's now five-year history, eclipsing the 15 win 2015 campaign.

FROM COACH HILTZ

About today: Obviously not the result we were hoping for, but I have to give UCA credit. They are a very good, highly underrated team. Not unlike we were in our first year when we went to Nationals. I feel like they deserve and will at least get consideration for Nationals with their resume this season. We made a few errors that hurt our flow or ran into a long rally that didn't fall our way.

Looking forward: I'm extremely proud of this team. We improved every week and we ended with more wins than any team in ULM Beach Volleyball history. It's tough to see our seniors go. The silver lining is that the door is now open for new leaders. New energy and a continued push for an appearance at NCAA Nationals. Now, we get back to the books and finish the semester in the classroom strong. There are still awards to be won in the classroom that we can attain.
