Coming off of an emotional victory against West Texas A&M (3-0) last weekend, the Wildcats are now preparing to go up against the toughest teams in the conference, Angelo State (18-3) and Tarleton State (16-5).

“Both of them are going to push us,” said head coach Kellen Mock. “We are really going to have to work well as a team to overcome their strengths and be able to highlight our own.”

The team hopes to carry their momentum and confidence from last week’s victory into this week’s battle.

Confidence is something that senior Kalynne Allen, middle blocker, has been focusing on.

“We are trying to build the confidence of the freshmen up,” Allen said.  “The days we can get them to believe that they are that good, are the days we’re usually successful.”

The outcome of the matches this weekend will play a large role in determining if the ‘Cats go to the playoffs.

“We have to play the game, play as hard as we can, hopefully win and then win or lose, let it go and move on,” Coach Mock said.

The ‘Cats have seven more games, including matches between Texas Woman’s and Texas A&M Kingsville, before the conference tournament.

Things are looking up for the team, especially with not one, but two players of the week on the court this weekend, Jennifer Loerch, co-offensive player of the week and Sarah Siemens, setter of the week.

Head Coach Mock is confident and looking forward to this weekend.

“Its our team stepping up, taking care of business and playing ACU volleyball,” Mock said. “If we do that we should get a win.”
