NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After opening Atlantic Sun play last weekend with a pair of road wins, the Lipscomb volleyball team opens league play at home this weekend at Allen Arena hosting USC Upstate on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. followed by a 2 p.m. tilt against ETSU on Saturday afternoon.
The Lady Bisons (8-6, 2-0 A-Sun) head into this weekend riding a season-high, six-game winning streak. Outside hitters Kaycee Green and Lauren Ford have been a big part of the offense during the run with both finishing in double-figure kills in each of the six wins.
“As I stated at the beginning of the year, this is what we work our whole season towards,” said Lipscomb head coach Brandon Rosenthal. “It should be good, not only to be back in conference but to also be at home against two teams that are going to give us quite a fight.”
ETSU – The Bucs (7-8, 1-0 A-Sun) come to “Music City USA” after a 10-day layoff in the schedule and will take on the Belmont Bruins on Friday night before coming across town on Saturday. The Bucs lead the A-Sun in blocking with a tough front line that is averaging 2.36 per set. ETSU’s Jamie Stancliff leads the league in the category with a 1.31 blocks per match average. 2010 A-Sun Freshman of the Year Megan Devine ranks second in the conference averaging 4.26 kills per set.
