Well that’s because it was the Lady Stangs volleyball team sweeping NMHU on the road! The Lady Stangs found themselves tied at 5 in the first set before a kill by Malayzha Dinkins started a 7 pt run that included 3 kills by Angelina Pulu and one from Heather Rux. The Cowgirls did claw back to within 2 at 21-19 before the Lady Stangs rallied and Pulu finished the set with emphasis to give WNMU a 25-19 win.

In the second set was much closer as the teams battled back and forth but the Lady Stangs were just toying with the Cowgirls. Jordan Johnston nailed two kills to put the Stangs up 23-20 and after a NMHU service error, Ziona Verhulsdonk provided another emphatic win with a kill that sent the Cowgirls reeling and put the good guys up 2-0.

WNMU was ready to get back to the hotel and after spotting the home team an early lead Johnston capped a run by the Lady Stangs to retake the lead and they never looked back. A kill by Dinkins gave Western a 5 pt lead at 16-11; Verhulsdonk and Johnston teamed up for some solid defense forcing errors by the Cowgirls opening up an 8 pt lead. The Cowgirls couldn’t get much closer than that and the Stangs came away with the sweep. It was a solid all around team effort. Western is back on the court tonight in Alamosa CO to face the Grizzlies of Adams State College.

We said the Lady Stangs would have to improve over last season on the road to be able to compete in the RMAC and they are; last year the team only won 4 games on the road all season; they have now won 3 on the road including 2 in the RMAC. It’s another key match as the Grizzlies are only 1/2 game behind the Stangs in the West Division at 5-2; the Stangs lead the West at 6-2…
