My name is Ilina Spasova. I am a freshman middle blocker from Sofia, Bulgaria. This week was an adventure for me and the team. We were really busy. We had 4 matches in 6 days and we played our first conference and home matches. We won 3/4 of the games. The first game was on Tuesday. We played against Our Ladies of the Lake and we won 3:1. Then we played on Wednesday against Hutson-Tillotson and we won 3:1 again. Playing in front of the home audience was amazing. On Thursday we travelled to Austin where we lost from St. Edward’s. On Friday we travelled for Dallas where we played against DBU on Saturday. Despite the exhaustion from the past days, we won 3:2 in a really emotional match. It was hard but we went out on the court as a team and fought till the end. We shocked the world. This week we continue with full power against Lubbock Christian on Tuesday and Tarleton State on Friday.
Wish us good luck. Go Rattlers!
Hey Rattler fans!
This is Jaycie Pluenneke #16! This past week has been a busy/exciting one for sure! We recently played four matches and went three for four. Last week was also our first home match, and it was a success. Conference started as well last week! This coming week, we play Lubbock Christian on Thursday and Tarleton University on Friday.
We would love everyone’s support this week and the upcoming ones, but if you’re not able to make it, they are livestreamed! J
Thanks again for all of the support,

Hi everyone, my name is Amanda Lake and I am a junior defensive specialist.
This week was an adventure to say the least. Unfortunately we weren't able to go to Miami due to hurricane Irma. Praying and hoping the people of Florida are safe and keeping them in our thoughts. On the bright side though we were able to go to St. Louis and play in the Lindenwood tournament which was awesome! We played hard the second day. Took a set off the number 9th ranked team in the country and got a win. Go rattlers!
Not only was it a weekend full of volleyball we were also able to have a fun day at the St. Louis zoo. My favorite animal was the gorillas. Fun fact I learned at the zoo , the women lemurs are head in charge and shew the males away when there is a tasty treat near. Here are some pictures throughout the trip.
This weekend was an amazing weekend, consisting of our first tournament at West Texas A&M. We bonded not only on the court but off the court as well with team bonding, team dinner, and film. For team bonding we came up with scenarios to either act out, hum, or draw. For instance, acting out being our GA, Kevin, or laughing like a teammate Amara. It was hilarious watching each other be goofy and free with one another. We also enjoyed some amazing meals such as Frizoli's, Olive Garden, and Subway. Although we had our fun off of the court, we also had much more fun on the court. Although we went 2-2 this weekend, we fought hard together on the court and on the bench. No matter what we always tried to uplift one another by cheering extremely loud and being silly. We fought hard this weekend against every team that we played and gave it our all every game. I know that next weekend we will do a lot better and grow mentally together. This weekend taught us to never give up on ourselves and fight together as a team.
