The Belles and fans celebrate after winning the Lone Star COnference Tournament at home. Their record is 31-3.

Rambelle volleyball won its second consecutive Lone Star Conference Volleyball Tournament Championship after they swept the Tarleton State University TexAnns Nov. 19 in the Stephens Arena at the Junell Center.

"I feel great," Volleyball Head Coach Chuck Waddington said. "My team played exceptionally well against a really talented team. Tarleton has got a really talented team, but we came out with a game plan today and executed it well. The match was tight all the way through, and we made the plays that we needed to so we could create gaps and close out the sets."

The Belles started off strong, immediately winning the first two sets of the game.

With a 2-0 set lead, the Belles started the third set with an early 10-7 lead.

However, the TexAnns fought back, and the match eventually came to a tie at 15 points.

Then, a service error from the TexAnns began 7-2 Belles run that put several more points on the board in favor of the Rambelles.

However, near the end of the set with a 22-19 lead and a close victory, a service error from the Rambelles made the score 23-20, and gave the ball back to the TexAnns.

It was freshman middle blocker Tulani Titley who got the team back track with a kill.

Finally, junior outside hitter Brianna Sotello made the final kill, winning the LSC Tournament Championship.

"I am just so grateful for this team," Sotello said. "Now, it’s time to prepare for the regional tournament."

The Rambelles will compete in the NCAA Division II South Central Regional Tournament which began on Dec. 1 against Texas A&M University-Kingsville in the Stephens Arena at the Junell Center. If the team wins, they will move onto the NCAA National Championship Dec. 8.
