Alabama A&M win highlights a weekend of champions

Grambling's sports teams have been on fire recently. 

On Friday, Grambling's soccer team got their first win against Jackson State University with a goal scored by Lizbeth Aguero in overtime with 8 mins left on the clock. 

That following Saturday, Gram had their first home game against Alabama A&M. 

The first quarter, Gram remained scoreless with A&M putting 7 on the board but when the second quarter rolled around, Gram caught on fire scoring 24 points and holding Alabama to just 7. 5 turnovers helped Gram get the upset victory over Alabama A&M. 

Sa’Marah Harmon-Grigsby, a freshman from Sacramento, Calif. Who is majoring in psychology, said the energy was perfect for Gramnbling’s first home football game. 

“For our first home game I think it was a great turn out especially since Covid kinda screwed everything up. The turnout from students and fans was amazing really,” 

That Sunday, Gram’s soccer team played again. 

This time against their rivals Southern University. The Lady Tigers put in the work and secured a 6-0 victory against Southern with each goal coming from a different player. Grambling's volleyball squad also brought in back to back W’s with a 3-2 win against Alcorn State on Sunday and another 3-2 win on Monday against those Southern U Jaguars. 

The Gramfam hopes their G-Men and Lady Tigers will continue to get the dubs with the upcoming games. 

This weekend, the G-Men will be facing the Braves at Alcorn State. 

TSU (Texas Southern University) will be hosting the Lady Tigers soccer team this Friday starting at 7 p.m. 

The Bulldogs of Alabama A&M will also be battling the Tigers volleyball team. 

Fans are hoping GSU’s sports teams take the same energy into this weekend’s games to secure wins in each of their respective sports.
