Brecht managed to pick up her first two double-doubles of the season in the tournament. FSU’s Brecht recorded her first double-double this season in a 3-2 loss to non-conference foe Mercyhurst Aug. 31 in Big Rapids. Brecht compiled 11 kills on offense while adding 11 digs on defense. She also had a solo black and three block assists in the match-up.

In the second day of action, Brecht helped the Bulldogs bounce back from an upset to Mercyhurst by posting her second double-double in a 3-1 victory against Clarion (Pa.).

The Bulldogs managed to keep the Golden Eagles nested while Brecht hit 11 kills and added 16 digs.

After the home invitational, the Bulldogs are now 3-1 for the season.
