Volleyball drop six in a row

The Lady Tigers volleyball team is currently on a six-game losing streak, with its most recent coming against Mississippi Valley State 3-1. 

The match won against the Lady Devilettes was the Lady Tigers’ first match won since they played Alcorn State University on Sept. 10.

Friday night, GSU lost to Texas Southern University 3-0. The Lady Tigers fell to a six-point deficit early, then came within seven points until TSU scored 11 straight to win the set by 25-10. 

The Lady Tigers went score for score and trailed 13-11 until TSU outscored GSU 12-4 and won the set 25-15. In the third set the Lady Tigers faced a 16-10 deficit early but the Lady Tigers scored seven unanswered points lead 17-16. TSU then answered with nine  straight to win the set 25-17 and match.

Against Prairie View on Monday, though the Lady Tigers lost all three sets, the games where close except the last set. The Lady Tigers lost the first  set 25-19, the second set 25-22 and in the last set the Lady Panthers came out with an early lead of 15-7. As the Lady Panthers looked to close out the match, the Lady Tigers crawled back but unfortunately they fell to a 25-13 lost. 

Despite the 2-8 start to the  Lady Tigers’ season, some players believe that they can turn the season around. 

“We are working towards a huge turn around,” said  Nyausha West, freshman hitter who plays left back. “We just need to play with our hearts, continue fighting, leave everything on the court and play together as a family. We can bring  Grambling’s old winning tradition back.”
