No. 11 Rambelles subdue Zias

For just a moment Friday night, it looked like Eastern New Mexico University's volleyball team was bent on a major upset.

The Zias jumped on No. 11 Angelo State for a 15-3 lead in Game 1 at Greyhound Arena, but the Rambelles rallied back to pull out the set and went on to a 25-23, 25-7, 25-12 Lone Star Conference victory over the Zias at Greyhound Arena.

Already leading 3-1, senior defensive specialist Emily Lubbers stepped to the service line and earned six points to extend the margin to eight, and junior middle blocker Kaitlyn Maddams converted three consecutive kills to help cap the early surge.

ASU (13-2, 6-0 LSC) stormed back, though, pulling out the game with seven of the final eight points, then dominating the rest of the way.

Shelbi Goode had a match-high 10 kills for the Rambelles, while Kaelen Valdez added 23 diigs and setter Alex Woolsey posted 35 assists.

Junior outside hitter Lindsey Barron led the Zias (5-9, 1-4) with seven kills, and she added 10 digs.

ENMU jumps back into action with a 7 p.m. LSC matchup today at Greyhound Arena against Tarleton State.
