The ASU Lady Rambelles on Aug. 28 faced off in their first scrimmage of the season against the Hardin-Simmons University Cowgirls and came out victorious. 
   
A packed crowd in the Stephens Arena, including students and members of the community, watched as ASU defeated HSU in all four rounds of play.
     
In the first round, senior Haley Coulter started the game with the first serve for the Belles, but HSU scored the first point.
       
Lindsey Ledyard, junior, eventually made a huge play, which tied the match 4-4.
   
Junior Bailey Drum then made a block to give ASU an advantage, 12-7.
       
Coulter scored the last point, which brought the score to 25-12 and gave the Belles the first round.
     
In the second round, HSU battled back and forth trying to catch up to ASU, but the Belles took another victory. In this round, senior Tulani Titley made vital block, which gave her team a 6-2 lead. Sophomore Morgan Preston then served from the top and extended the lead to 9-2. The match ended 25-11 as Titley scored the last point for ASU.
     
In the third round, senior Meghan Parker served first and gave ASU the first point.
     
However, HSU gave away the last point, which ended the game 25-12 for another ASU victory.
         
In the last round, freshman Kailyn Gilbreath caused a player on the Cowgirls to hit out of bounds, which pushed the score to 14-9 in ASU’s favor. The score then rose to 18-11 after Titley completed a block. Kenzie Jordan, freshman, scored the final point and ended the game 25-15.
 
 After the scrimmage, coaches and players from both sides met in the middle of gym to congratulate each other and say a prayer.
