Rambelles stand strong after a 3-0 loss to Lubbock Christian University on Nov. 8.

Zoey Hanrahan, sophomore, led the charge in the first match by scoring two points for the Rambelles.

“It was hard to get middle sets today because our passes weren’t on target,” Hanrahan said.

She said it was hard starting out the game without enough momentum because of the emotions being felt by the players after witnessing senior day moments before the game began.

The Rambelles looked strong going into the second match, and they maintained a resilient presence on both defense and offense. Both teams were tied for a majority of the match, which created a great deal of anxiety for spectators.

Abbie Lynn, freshman, gave a great performance with her spikes during match two.

The anticipation continued as LCU trailed behind by one point after every volley finally leading to a 22/22 tie between both teams. Once LCU broke the tie, the Rambelles showed constant determination to close the gap, but unfortunately LCU reached 25 points first and secured their second win.

We gave a good effort but we could have played better, Kaylin Troxell, junior, said.

The Rambelles showed strong defense and determination in the third set. ASU was ready to show what they are known for, not stopping until the game was finished. LCU took set 3 with the final score of 21 to 25.

Even though the Rambelles lost the game, they are still motivated and are looking towards the future as they enter conference play next week.

We need a lot of rest going into the conference championship Hanrahan said. We are going to work on serving and receiving the ball, as well as getting our line shots in bounds.

Going into conference play we want to focus on improving our errors and giving everything we have to win, Troxell said.

This being the final home game of the season, the Rambelles acknowledged their senior players Troxell and Shelly Wilt.

Troxell is graduating early with a degree in Kinesiology and Nursing. She is also a member of the National Honors Society.

Wilt is ASU’s all time digs leader with 1,862 carrier digs for the Rambelles. She was also placed on the Loan Star Conference Commissioners honor role.

It hasn’t sunk in yet that this is my last season, but I still have conference play to look towards and we will go in playing at our best, Troxell said.
