The St. Mary’s volleyball team continued conference play against Lubbock Christian University on Thursday and Oklahoma Panhandle State University on Friday. The Rattlers endured a six hour bus ride to Lubbock, Texas early Wednesday morning to play them the following day. The girls on long bus rides typically like to spend their down time doing homework, watching movies, studying volleyball film, and sleeping. The following day, the team engaged in team bonding by going to Main Event. They also went shopping and eating as a team that morning and early afternoon. Later that evening, the girls prepared to compete against Lubbock Christian. After battling point for point, the Lady Rattlers fell to Lubbock Christian in the 5th set. The Lady Rattlers had a phenomenal game, however, the Chaparrals found a way to win the conference game that night.
On that same night after the game, the team traveled to Guymon, Oklahoma to rest up and prepare for another important conference match against Oklahoma Panhandle State University for Friday. Despite the loss against Lubbock Christian, the St. Mary’s volleyball team defeated Oklahoma Panhandle State in 4 sets leaving them with a 1-1 record for that weekend. The Lady Rattlers will play Newman University on Thursday October 6th for Professor Appreciation Night and University of Arkansas-Fort Smith on Saturday October 8th.
