LSC VOLLEYBALL - From the LSC Office
Texas A&M-Commerce and West Texas A&M lead the Lone Star Conference standings at 2-0 to start league play.  LSC games continue this week with two games Tuesday, one Wednesday, and five each on Friday and Saturday.
LSC volleyball teams are 55-47 overall this season.  The squads are currently 15-16 combined versus Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference teams, and 6-5 against the Heartland Conference, which are the other leagues in the NCAA South Central Region.  LSC schedule and results available here:

Roberts continued her strong senior campaign as the Cedar Park native landed 62 kills in three matches, leading Tarleton to two wins last weekend. Roberts went for a double-double in all three matches for the TexAnns last week and topped the 20-kill plateau against Dallas Baptist and Texas A&M-Commerce. For the week, Roberts hit .279, including a .447 clip at Texas Woman's Friday night, to go along with two assists, five service aces, 42 digs, six blocks, and 70.0 total points.
