Amongst the cheers of nearly one thousand fans, the Rambelles’ won their Lone Star Conference opener on Wednesday, Sept. 16 in a 3-1 victory over Tarleton State.

The energy was intense in the arena, with swells of people chanting support and slogans for the Belles. Fraternities showed their support for the volleyball team by flying their flags high across the arena. Clubs and organizations similarly gathered in varying fashions, some with exuberant displays of support and solidarity. The team finished the game with 57 kills to TSU’s 49.

“We’re young in the season, we’re still developing as a team but we’ve done some really good things tonight,” Coach Chuck Waddington said.

This victory last Friday only set the stage for the Rambelles to dominate during the American International College Invitational in Springfield, Massachusetts earlier in the week.

The Belles beat three of the four teams in a perfect 3-0 sweep, while they maintained a slick 3-1 victory against Dowling College. Omitting the game on Tuesday, Sept. 22, this puts the Belles at a 12-3 record for this season.

“It’s all about the mindset, pushing in and overcoming adversity,” Defensive specialist Katie MacLeay, who boasts an impressive 313 digs on her record this season, said. “That’s what we’re going to need because we’re going to have some tough matches ahead of us.”

The Belles will face Eastern New Mexico on Friday, Sept. 25 and on Saturday, Sept. 26 they will go up against West Texas A&M at home.

The Rambelles are currently on a five game winning streak and haven’t lost since the match with Missouri S&T. This will carry them high into the upcoming games this weekend and later in the season.
