The Rambelles left the Cameron University Aggies dazed and confused after a successful first match on Oct. 17, setting a good pace for the game that would soon lead them to victory.

The team brought forth a lot of energy coming into the game and it was a good motivator for the team coming back from a tough weekend, Abbie Lynn, freshman starter for the Rambelles, said.

Lynn said she is thankful for every game that she gets to play in that provides an opportunity to help the team succeed.

The Aggies gave the Rambelles a challenge during the second match with some strong defense, but ASU was able to charge through their wall of defense and secure the second match.

Match three showed a constant back and forth battle between the Rambelles and the Aggies.

Lynn’s ability to spike the ball helped the Rambelles achieve victory in match three, stopping the Aggies from advancing into a fourth game.

It’s important that we push to win every game to improve our standing in the Lone Star Conference, Lynn said.

ASU showed what they are known for on the court as they executed team work and overwhelming determination.

“My teammates get me motivated,” Mallory Blauser, sophomore outside hitter, said. “We strive to win every game, and there is no excuse to drop a set.”

Even though the Aggies put up a strong fight during the game, specifically in the second and third matches, the Rambelles were still able to charge forward and defeat them in a perfect 3-0 game.

Lynn scored 9 kills during the game and Blauser performed 13 kills. These were crucial parts of the overall team performance needed to secure the win against a top school like Cameron University.

I thought we played a pretty clean game, Chuck Waddington, head coach, said. We want to stay clean, handle the ball well and work hard on defense, he said.

The Rambelles have continued to improve on the activity of the middle court players, which creates opportunities for the attackers to score, Waddington said.

Overall ASU’s performance in the LSC has been commendable. ASU is currently tied with Tarleton University for third place in the conference.
