Winning at home has not been a problem for the Texas State volleyball team since conference play started, but a different attitude was in place as the Bobcats entered the third set against Georgia Southern on Saturday.
“The last two or three times we’ve been at home, we’ve won the first two sets and then come out sluggish and lost the third set,” Coach Karen Chisum said. “I asked the team in the locker room, ‘When is the last time we’ve swept someone here at Texas State?’ And they said ‘Well, tonight is going to be the night.’”
The Bobcats won their eighth-straight home game, improving the team’s Sun Belt Conference record to 10-3. Georgia Southern never gained a lead in the second and third sets, mostly due to the Bobcats avoiding errors.
