The polls are in and the new No. 1 seed for the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division 2 South Central Conference are the Rambelles.

Volleyball reached a new height as they added another victory to their undefeated home record at the Junell Center on senior day, Nov. 6 with the set scores 25-16, 25-17 and 25-16 against the Texas A&M -Kingsville Javelinas.

The Belles have a seven match winning streak and continue to practice hard, remaining determined.

“Against Kingsville we served pretty tough, we had them on a system and made our job on defense a lot easier,” Head Coach Charles Waddington said. “Coming into this week playing Cameron and Midwestern it’s important that we don’t lose focus. We have to keep our eyes focused on what we are trying to do.”

Junior and outside hitter Mallory Blauser led the kill count with a total of 16 kills and was selected for Offensive Player of the Week by the Lone Star Conference. The Round Rock native improved to 392 kills this season.

Sophomore and right side hitter Abbie Lynn tallied a total of 11 kills during the match against the Javelinas. As of now, Lynn has a total of 272 kills.

Senior setter Maggi Jo Keffury gave 34 assists in the match, which brought her to a career total of 2,776. Keffury also completed her 13th double-double of the year with 330 digs.

Belles’ defense led a strong match with sophomore outside hitter Brianna Sotello and senior libero Katie MacLeay both contributing double-digit digs. MacLeay had 14 digs, giving her a record of 1,740. This puts MacLeay at second place in ASU history for most digs.

Sotello had 19 digs, a block, 9 kills and a service ace.

By the second set of the game, Mallory got the Belles on a 6-2 lead in the first set. The Belles took the second set with a 25-17 win.

MacLeay serviced the start of the final set while Seaton and Mallory contributed to the 5-1 lead Sotello added six more points to the Belles. The match ended with a kill by Kelsey Blauser with a score of 25-16.

The seniors were recognized for their hard work and leadership on the team.

“Our seniors mean a lot to us Katie [MacLeay] and MJ [Maggi Jo Keffury] have played a huge role of what we are doing here, Kelsey [Blauser] has played a little bit smaller role but still very important to what we do,” Waddington said. “We look to them for leadership.”

The Belles will play again in Lawton, Okla. Nov. 13 at 5:30 p.m. against Cameron University.
