On Friday, Sept. 21, the Belles volleyball team secured a win against Texas A&M University - Kingsville 3-0 to remain undefeated at home.

On Friday evening, the Belles won the three sets 25-9, 25-19 and 25-22.

The team now has a record of 12-4 and are 5-1 in the Lone Star Conference.

ASU started the match hitting .500 and committing only one attack error during a big opening set.

The Belles cooled off to hit .246 overall while holding TAMUK under a .100 hitting percentage in all three sets thanks to the team’s defense.

Juniors Anna Graham and Sundara Chinn led their team offensively along with senior Audrey Fragniere. Graham posted 11 kills with a .526 hitting percentage in the match. Chinn and Fragniere each posted nine.

Chinn and freshman Chloe Robinson led the team defensively; they posted 12 and 17 digs. This was the Robinson’s second straight match recording over 15 digs.

Junior setter Meghan Parker recorded 36 assists, 6 digs and a service ace.

Head Coach Chuck Waddington said the team has put an extra emphasis this year with a new role on sports marketing to get information out to the students and encourage them to attend home games.

"We try to create a fan-friendly environment for everybody," Waddington said.

Waddington said fans make a huge difference for them and are a huge advantage.

"We are trying to get these kids out and the community as well, but students’ sections, we like them to be loud," Waddington said.

ASU will be back at home on Oct. 5 to face Western New Mexico University at 7 p.m. in the Junell Center.
