HANCEVILLE – Wallace State Community College's volleyball team returned home Tuesday night for the first time in three weeks and produced a familiar result.
Another convincing victory against an Alabama Community College Conference (ACCC) foe.
Sophomore Kierra Outlin paved the way with nine kills and six digs, freshman Kris Lawson had eight kills and five blocks and the 19th-ranked Lady Lions rolled to a 25-6, 25-9, 25-11 victory over Lawson State at Tom Drake Coliseum. Wallace State improved to 35-1 on the season and to 13-0 in league play.
Wallace State continues its supremacy during the ACCC regular season. The school hasn't lost an ACCC regular-season match since the 2008 season, dropping just one that year. The Lady Lions were also the ACCC Tournament champions last season, advancing to the national tournament for the first time in seven years.
Wallace State's only loss this season is to Loyola University, a four-year institution in New Orleans.
"We were happy to get back out on the court. We had a nice break since we took last weekend off. I used a lot of different lineups, we tried some different things and the girls executed it well," said coach Randy Daniel. "We've got to continue to play hard, play consistent and find our rhythm. That's what I want to see the most. I want to find which girls are going to play the hardest and the most consistent in our matches before the conference tournament."
Sophomore Jessica Wilburn of Gaston High finished Tuesday's match with seven digs, four aces and three kills, Lesley Bemis had eight kills and three blocks, Skylar Key contributed five aces, five blocks and four kills and Amelia Moore added five kills, four blocks and three digs.
Stephanie Andrews and Caelin Light combined for 23 assists.
Wallace State heads to Cape Fear, N.C. on Friday for a weekend tournament.
"This tournament should be good for us. We're going to see some strong competition the next two weekends," Daniel said. "It will help us prepare for our remaining conference games and the conference tournament."
Wallace State returns home on Oct. 21 for sophomore night vs. Northwest Shoals and Jeff Davis.
