The Lady Tigers volleyball team played over the weekend in the second round of the SWAC Round-up games.

Game one on Friday saw the Tigers face off against a tough Jackson State team. The  JSU squad was able to pick up the win in 3-1 sets.

The JSU team is 8-2 in the SWAC and is dominating on the court.

Three players added eight kills each in the loss.

The team bounced back in the second match of the day against Mississippi Valley State, winning the game in straight sets.

With seven ties and lead changes, the downfall of Mississippi Valley came at the hands of their errors, marking down 22 out of their total 116 attempts. 

Saturday’s action saw Alabama A&M take the victory over the Tigers in straight sets.

The loss comes right before the match-up of the Lady Tigers and Alcorn State, who suffered losses at the hands of Grambling.

The day’s action wrapped up after the tough win for the Lady Tigers.

Ahead of them was  Sunday’s matchup against Alabama State. 

At game time, the Hornets proved to difficult to beat and swept the Lady Tigers in the last game of the conference.

The team walks away with a 2-3 record from the weekend. 

Next week, the Lady Tigers will head on a three game road stint against Tougaloo College, Prairie View A&M, and Texas Southern.

Following that, the team will return home for the final two games of the season against Southern University and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.
