The Wildcats were on the road this week and lost to both Incarnate Word, 2-3 and Texas A&M Corpus Christi in straight sets.
The volleyball team is struggling as they are coming to the near end of its season. They are 3-11 in the Southland Conference and are currently in last place in conference standings.
In the UIW game, they put up a tough fight but lost in five sets. In the first set, the Wildcats lost, 24-26, but quickly bounced back winning the second set, 26-24.
In the third set they still had the momentum winning, 25-17, but couldn’t keep it up losing the fourth set, 16-25, and the fifth set, 13-15.
Lindsey Toney, sophomore right side and outside hitter, led the team with 17 kills. Lorin McNeil, junior middle blocker, led the team with 11 blocks, and Madison Rohre, sophomore setter, led the team with 28 assists.
Sofia Resendiz, senior labero, said that despite the loss there was positives that came out of the game.
“Our hitters are all finding their kills a lot quicker in the matches which allows us to score points earlier,” Resendiz said. “Our pursuit for balls on defense has improved and we are making impressive plays on defense to keep the ball alive to score.”
The second road game volleyball played was against TXAM-CC and lost in straight sets. In the first set they lost, 15-25, and in the second and third set they lost, 23-25.
They have had a tough time winning games in conference but Resendiz said that she is still proud of her team.
“The position we are in right now for conference is one none of us want, but the resilience and work ethic on our team has stayed consistent which is something I am proud to be apart of because not a lot of teams keep fighting when in this position,” Resendiz said. “Our mentality this week is to play hard and finish on a winning note together as a team, especially for us seniors having only two more games left in moody.”
The Wildcats play its next game against McNeese on Nov. 14 in Moody at 6 p.m..
