The university’s women’s volleyball team breaks the huddle in the second set against the University of New Orleans on Oct 29. The Lady Lions shut out UNO 3-0 to earn their 12th victory of the season.

On Oct. 29 the Lady Lions volleyball team hosted the University of New Orleans Privateers in their 25th game of the regular season.

Southeastern shut out the Southland Conference rivals 3-0, to win their 12th game of the season. 

Jeremy White, head coach of volleyball, explained how it felt to win against the University of New Orleans. 

“It felt really good to get the win with a test this big,” shared White. “It feels good to start to turn the program around and the culture of the team around. You can tell we changed around this team by looking in the win column.” 

White shared what the team’s game plan was against the Privateers.

“We preached on high energy before the game,” said White. “We told them to not make small mistakes and keep the ball in front of us. We told the girls if they had good communication throughout the game we should be able to take the win.” 

Jodi Edo, a senior middle blocker, explained what she thinks she excelled in against the University of New Orleans.

“I think my communication skills were really good tonight,” shared White. “I tried to focus on this game. Swinging was okay tonight I think we need to work a little harder on that, but overall our communication was excellent.” 

With a current record of 12-13 and 6-5 in the Southland Conference the Lady Lions next matchup will be on Nov. 2 against Central Arkansas University.
