The Rambelles took control of their court, winning all four of their matches at the Angelo State Invitational.
They swept Dallas Baptist, Colorado State Pueblo and Colorado Mesa, but had to put up a fight against University of Arkansas - Fort Smith, winning 3-2.
“These first games showed us where we stand in region,” sophomore Haley Bianco said. “The last game could have gone a little better but we still won it. Our defense is our strength and we are getting a lot better at blocking.”
The ‘Belles are in Colorado, Sept. 13, for the Colorado Premier Challenge. They will take on University of Nebraska at Kearney and Metropolitan State University of Denver and move up from there.
“We have a chance to play some teams that are a part of the top five in the nation this weekend and win, so it is definitely something to look forward to,” red-shirt freshman Cerbi Ritchey said.
One of their goals is to host the regional tournament this year, Ritchey said.
“This weekend’s games will determine where the region tournament will be held, so it is important for us to get in there and win them,” Bianco said.
