The Rambelles volleyball team is ready for the start of their season Sept. 4 against The University of Texas of the Permian Basin at home in the Junell Center.

“I am looking forward to the atmosphere in our gym,” Outside Hitter, Cerbi Ritchey, said. “We will be pretty powerful offensively this season.”

The team is heading into the season picked third in the Lone Star Conference preseason poll, which reflects the views of conference head coaches, sports information directors and selected media members.

ASU received one first-place vote in the preseason poll after finishing last season with a 21-9 record according to angelosports.com.

"There will be no easy matches," Head Coach, Chuck Waddington, said. “For us, consistency is the key. We can't afford any midseason lulls in play. We've proven over the past few years that we are capable of beating anyone in the country, but at the same time also capable of losing.”

The Rambelles advanced to a program-record four straight NCAA Division II South Central Championships and has played in the past six LSC Championship finals.

Defensive Specialist Katie MacLeay said the chemistry between her and all of the players can lead them to victory.

“When you get along with the girls next to you on the court, things mesh and it’s easier to achieve common goals that way,” MacLeay said. “We need to challenge each other and make every contact count. We’re hungry and need to display that attitude during our practices so it carries into our games.”

The team will continue on a homecourt spree, also playing Chardon State College Sept. 4, and Western New Mexico and Newman University on Sept. 5.
