The Albany State volleyball team has won nine straight conference titles and is ready to extend that number at the SIAC tournament this week.

 

Albany State did win the SIAC crossover tournament in September.

Head coach Robert Skinner believes his squad is ready for the conference tournament.

The Lady Rams have won their last four matches and their quality of play has also improved.

 

Robert Skinner said. "We are hitting the ball extremely well right now. Our hitting percentage over the last three ballgames has been over 32%. That is an improvement for us from earlier in the year. We are passing the ball and we are playing better defense."
