CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Junior outside hitter Aubrey Dondlinger (Palos Heights, Ill./Parkland CC) and senior outside hitter Brittany Hastings (Wichita, Kan./Circle) each tallied double-doubles in leading Southeast Missouri State volleyball to a 3-0 (30-24, 30-26, 30-21) win over Tennessee-Martin in an Ohio Valley Conference contest this afternoon at Houck Fieldhouse. The Redhawks improve their record to 6-8 (3-2) with the win and the Skyhawks dropped to 7-8 (1-4) on the season.

Dondlinger posted a match-best 17 kills with 11 digs and a season-high four service aces, while Hastings added 13 kills and 11 digs. Sophomore right side hitter Karleigh DeLong (Corona, Calif./Santiago) also contributed 13 kills, sophomore libero Molly Davis (Muncie, Ind./Burris) produced a match-high 18 digs and junior setter Alyssa Aston (Franklin, Tenn./Franklin) notched a career-best 46 assists.

Tennessee-Martin snapped an early 8-8 tie in the first game with four quick points to claim a 12-8 advantage and later increased its lead to 14-12 on a block from senior Kathryn Sprague and junior Megan Hitt. Southeast then outscored the Skyhawks by a 10-5 margin with three kills coming from Dondlinger to post a 22-19 lead. After a kill from Hitt brought the visitors to within 26-24, the Redhawks scored the final four points, including two kills from DeLong, to gain a 1-0 lead.

In the second game, Southeast used a 5-3 run with three kills from Hastings to break an 11-11 tie and capture a 16-13 lead. The Redhawks later broke another tie at 20-20 with a 6-2 scoring drive for a 26-22 advantage, but Tennessee-Martin sliced its deficit to 27-25 on a kill from sophomore Lauren Montague and a Southeast hitting error. A Hastings kill helped the home team score three of the final four points and take a 2-0 lead.

The Redhawks recorded an early 4-1 lead on a kill from DeLong and later hiked their lead to 11-6 on a Skyhawk hitting error. Tennessee-Martin scored three straight points to close within 11-9, but six consecutive service points from Aston helped Southeast increase its advantage to 18-9. A service ace from freshman defensive specialist Kelly Benacka (Algonquin, Ill./Jacobs) gave the home team its biggest lead at 26-16 and the Redhawks later scored four of the final nine points to nail the win.

Sprague's 10 kills and six blocks from junior Sarah Jett led Tennessee-Martin. Senior Anna Gautreau recorded 17 digs, senior Shelby Knose added 17 assists and Montague posted eight kills and 11 digs.

Southeast continues its homestand Wednesday night with a non-conference showdown against Memphis beginning at 7 p.m.
