Jenna Markey, senior, jumps high to spike the ball. Markey had a total of three blocks during the game.

The Volleyball team finished its regular season with a sweep of Western New Mexico University and recognized its 2017 senior class.

The Belles finished their regular season with a 21-8 and 13-7 LSC record.

The Belles will compete next in the Lone Star Conference Championship Tournament.

The team turned in a .348 clip for the match; seniors Brianna Sotello, Morgan Seaton and Leiyona Young led them in kills.

"I feel really good that our seniors played well and got some quality time," Head Coach Chuck Waddington said.

Waddington said Young and Senior Jenna Markey played great for them.

"It was nice to see them step up in a challenging match and against a team that has beaten us before," Waddington said. "They rose to the occasion, and I am really proud of them."

Sotello said they had people play that normally don’t play and thought they did an amazing job.

In the second set, WNMU had a 17-12 lead.

The belles caught up to win the set 27-25.

"We were down, they should have won that," Waddington said. "We made a lot of errors in that second set."

Waggington said the other team played with a lot of energy and the Belles didn’t match that energy so he challenged them to do so and the players responded well.

"I think we just got super undisciplined and kind of relaxed a little bit, but we brought it back in and focused on our side," Sotello said.

Waddington said they are starting to play better volleyball and every match they are playing a little bit better.

"We’re doing good things, and we just want to keep doing that," Waddington said.

Sotello said the match was fun and the energy was exciting.

"It was just a really fun last time to be here," Sotello said.

The Belles will be in Stephenville for the LSC Tournament facing Texas Women’s at noon on Thursday, November 16. The Belles are 1-1 against Texas Women’s this season. ASU is the third seed and TWU is the sixth seed for the tournament. The tournament will conclude with the championship match on Saturday, Nov. 18.

"I’m excited," Sotello said. "It’s another chance to go back and get redemption on some teams we lost to earlier in the season and prove that we are a good team."
