Excitement takes over the belles after another point against East Central University. The belles swept this game three to zero.


The first loss of 2018 came to the Belles volleyball team on August 29 as they fell short to the Colorado Christian University Cougars 3-2.

The Belles hit .170 against CCU, their lowest hitting percentage so far this season.

“CCU did a great job of exposing some weaknesses of ours, and we certainly didn’t help ourselves from the service line,” Head Coach Chuck  Waddington said. “I would have liked to see a better response to their pressure, but this is an opportunity for our team to learn and get better.”

In the first set, the Belles got an early lead with a kill from redshirt sophomore Bailey Drum.

The Cougars, however, took the lead until ASU caught up to tie them at 14. CCU got a six- point run, which lead to their victory in set one.

At the beginning of the second set,    Angelo State scored the first five points. With errors from the opposing team, their lead increased to eight and then 10 after blocks from the Belles.
Sophomore Baleigh Allen hit the double-digit kill mark for the second straight match with 10 against Colorado Christian.

The Cougars were unable to catch up, giving the second set victory to ASU.

In the third set, the teams traded the lead back and forth.

Junior Sundara Chinn got a kill on an assist, starting a rally for the Belles.

Chinn led her team’s attackers with 13 kills and a .344 hitting percentage.
The Belles pulled through for  another set win, putting them 2-1.

In the fourth set the Cougars kept the lead and won the set.

The fifth and final set started with a CCU lead, and they fought to keep it, ending the game with a 3-2 victory.
