The Gulf Coast Athletic Conference has issued its weekly report recapping play from the week of 8/25 - 8/31 and looking ahead at upcoming athletic events.
Jackson, Ms. - With a young team, oftentimes coaches are waiting for that moment when things just "click". Through four games, Southern University at New Orleans had done everything but, losing three straight after a season opening victory over Texas College. The Lady Knights dropped nine consecutive sets over its next three matches against Faulkner, Mobile and Millsaps.
"Just because we have a talented team it didn't mean we could just roll the ball out and expect to win", said head coach Naomi Washington. "They struggled but their attitudes didn't change. They practiced hard and they were competing. The results just weren't what we wanted."
Then suddenly, everything changed. Friday evening, against Lyon College, the "click" may finally have been heard.
