Laurendine Makes History n Dominant Win / Jace Aymond

The Mississippi College volleyball team return home after a two-game road trip where they took on West Alabama. The Lady Choctaws cruised to a victory, winning in straight sets which puts them at 5-6 on the season with a 3-3 GSC record. The Tigers are still winless on the year and have dropped the last six meetings between the two teams. 

The first set saw the Lady Choctaws easily slide into a 25-18 victory and even started the second set hot with a 12-3 advantage. The Tigers didn’t go down quietly, but MC still easily handled the second set, 25-16. The third and final set saw UWA lead for almost its entirety, but the Lady Choctaws ended the match on an impressive 10-1 run to seal the victory.

The big note of the night though, was Lexie Laurendine becoming the new leader in assists in program history. With a team-best 21 on the night, she passes Sydney Chandler with a patriotic 1,776 assists in only her junior year. She also led the team in kills with 10 against the Tigers. Three Lady Choctaws had double digit digs on the night, including Missy Beber, who is second in the Gulf South Conference in that category, averaging 4.7 per set. Stevie Nesbit led the squad in blocks with three as well.

The Lady Choctaws sit in fifth place in the conference standings and will stay at home to take on Union, who are in fourth, this coming Saturday morning at 10. The volleyball team also will be hosting Digs and Donuts, where fans can grab a donut before watching what’s expected to be an even match between the Lady Choctaws and Bulldogs.
