Lady Cards to host Nicholls on Tuesday
Oct. 15, 2012
BEAUMONT – The Lamar volleyball team will be looking to avenge a loss earlier this season when they play host to Nicholls on Tuesday evening at McDonald Gym.
The Lady Cardinals (9-14, 1-8 Southland) saw a late comeback attempt spoiled by the Colonels in the SLC opener in Thibodaux, La. After losing 25-22 in the first two sets, LU came out of the break strong, hitting .484 and getting five kills from freshman Rebekah Rightnour to win 25-18. Lamar nearly forced a deciding set, but Nicholls made the necessary plays late to win 27-25.
Nicholls is entering play on Tuesday with an 8-12 record, including a 3-6 mark in conference play. The Colonels are 8-22 all-time vs. the Lady Cards, but the mark is worse in Beaumont, with LU taking home 11 of the 14 matches.
First serve on Tuesday is set for 7:00 p.m.
