Rambelles’ volleyball continued their winning streak at home against Midwestern State on Oct. 9 and Cameron on Oct. 10 winning 3-0 in both games and pulling a double sweep, making it their eleventh sweep this season.

These were two important victories for the Belles as they follow up from the loss against Kingsville back on Oct. 2. This being their first loss in the conference, the team has shown resolve and determination in their ferocious comebacks against Midwestern and Cameron.

“I’d like to think we’ve recovered from the Kingsville match,” outside hitter Mallory Blauser said. “It was a momentary lapse. We’re bouncing back now.”

Blauser held 13 kills on Friday’s game and 12 kills on Saturday.

Middle blocker Morgan Seaton said the team has used the loss as a chance to work harder in the gym. There were a couple of instances against Midwestern where Seaton was already in the air before the setter had set the ball up for her, making her sudden hits all the more surprising for both the opponents and the audience.

“Every match Morgan is getting better and better,” Head Coach Chuck Waddington said. “We still have a lot of work to do in the conference this season, but I think we’re working in the right direction.”

Wishing to go undefeated, Seaton said, “I’m not a very powerful hitter, so I have to be quick.”

The high energy within the Junell Center undeniably worked in the Belles’ favor, psyching out their opponents and giving them confidence.

Junior Austin Gibson said he tries to make it to all the home games, and is hopeful for their season.

“I like watching the Belles’ play, they’re really good and they have some strong hitters,” Gibson said. “I think they have a chance to make it all the way through the conference this season, and I don’t think anyone’s tied with them right now. I think they’ll beat Kingsville next time too.”

These wins put the Belles 17-4 for the season and 6-1 in the Lone Star Conference.

The Rambelles play again Friday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. in the Junell Center and again Saturday, Oct. 17 at 1 p.m.

“We can’t just show up and win, we have to compete,” Waddington said. “Every team that faces us wants to beat us. We have a target on our back now. If we come in the wrong way, with the wrong mentality, we’ll lose.”
