CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Cortney Moore put together yet another strong performance for the Lamar volleyball team on Thursday evening, racking up 11 kills at a .375 clip to go along with a pair of aces and four blocks, but it wasn’t enough for the Lady Cardinals as they were bested in 3-1 (21-25, 15-25, 25-23, 22-25) fashion at Dugan Wellness Center on the campus of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
The loss dropped Lamar to 10-21 this season and 2-15 in Southland play. TAMUCC improved to 11-6 in the SLC and 20-10 overall.

Megan Schwartz led the team in digs with 15, and both Alex Morford and Erika Rojas added 11 as well.
