The Texas A&M University-Commerce volleyball team will serve it out with home court advantage as they take on the Western New Mexico Mustangs Nov. 4 and the Eastern New Mexico Greyhounds Nov. 5.

With a current 15-11 record for the season, the objective for the team is to keep pushing.

“We’re at home this upcoming weekend, so that’s really important,” said head volleyball coach Craig Case. “Everybody’s coming in at this point of the year either fighting for a higher spot in the league, fighting to get in the tournament, or the top teams; we’re all fighting for possibly being ranked nationally. So, everybody at this point of the year is just coming in and just really having a lot to fight for. You’re going to see a lot of really good volleyball in this part of the year.”

The fighting spirit led to two Lions road wins against Texas Woman’s University and Texas A&M University-Kingsville Oct. 25 and Oct. 28.

The Lions took the win against Texas Woman’s University with four straight set wins (25-20, 25-23, 27-29, 25-16). Team leaders were Taryn Driver and Neka Nelson with 11 kills each; Layne Little with 10 kills; Sydney Reyes and Shantel Norton with nine kills; and Jaslyn Wacker with eight kills.

The Lions played catch up with A&M-Kingsville after falling behind in the first two sets (17-25, 19-25) and won the match with set scores of 26-24, 25-22, and 15-10. The team was lead by Taryn Driver with 16 kills; Layne Little picking up 15 kills; and Jaryn Wacker adding 14 kills.
