Islanders Volleyball Knocks off Conference Favorite

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - The Texas A&M-CC volleyball team picked up a huge win on Thursday night in its home match of the season at the Dugan Wellness Center.

The Islanders handed unbeaten Central Arkansas its first loss of the season with a determined effort in front of a raucous crowd in the Southland Conference opener for both squads. Coach Tony Graystone's team won the first two sets in front of home fans, but Central Arkansas stormed back to force a fifth and deciding set. A&M-CC fell behind 2-7 before rallying to win the set and the match, 3-2.

The victory upped the Islanders' record to 8-4 on the season. They move into a four-way tie for first place in the Southland Conference.

The Islanders will try to up their conference record to 2-0 as they host Oral Roberts at 1pm on Saturday in a Southland Conference match at the Dugan Wellness Center.
