NEVADA, Mo. - After dropping the first game, Northeastern A&M's Lady Norse reeled off three straight victories to win a volleyball match Monday night over Cottey College in the Hinkhouse Activities Center.
Coach Eric Iverson's Lady Norse conclude the home portion of their schedule today by hosting Allen County, Kan., at 6:30 p.m. in the Student Activity Center.
The Lady Norse are 5-8 on the season while Allen County stands 17-23 on the year.
After the Comets (17-7) won the first game 25-20, the Lady Norse reeled off 28-26, 25-21 and 26-24 scores to win the match.
“This was an important match for us because it completed the seeding for the Region XVI post-season tournament,” Iverson said. “We get the third seed and Cottey is the fourth.”
The Region XVI Tournament will be Nov. 7-8 at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley.
Two-time defending regional champion and seventh-ranked Metropolitan Community College-Longview, Mo., received the top seed while No. 8 East Central Community College of Union, Mo., received the second seed.
“We're playing real solid as a team right now,” Iverson said. “We're trusting our defense and we're making smooth transitions from offense to defense.”
NEO concludes the regular season Wednesday by traveling to Northern Oklahoma-Enid for a 6 p.m. match.
