Executing a play that ranked No. 9 in SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays and earning a spot on the All-Southland Sports Tournament Team was the perfect end to conference tournament play for SFA middle blocker Makenzee Hanna before the Ladyjacks were knocked out of the first round of the NCAA volleyball tournament by University of Texas at Austin last week.

SFA Ladyjacks advance to the NCAA Volleyball tournament after sweeping the Sugar Bears of Central Arkansas with set scores of 25-21, 25-9 and 25-23 in the Championship of the Southland Conference Volleyball Tournament. 

A difficult and meaningful game is what the SFA Ladyjacks volleyball team played on Friday morning against eighth seed Texas A&M University Corpus Christi Islanders to win the game after four sets 25-21, 27-29, 25-23 and 25-14.

Throughout the season, the SFA Ladyjacks have kept the purple lights on and have brought pride to the fans and community. To keep the excitement going, the Ladyjacks will compete in Natchitoches, Louisiana, in the Prather Coliseum on Friday against Texas A&M University Corpus Christi at 11 a.m. in the Southland Conference Tournament Quarterfinals.

The last two home games at Shelton Gym were dominated by the SFA Ladyjacks volleyball team. To end the season, the team is heading out to play Nicholls at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Thibodaux, Louisiana, and the University of New Orleans at 1 p.m. Saturday in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Two more conference wins against the UNO Privateers and the Nicholls State Colonels allowed the SFA Ladyjacks volleyball team to leave Shelton Gym with a 20-game winning streak, .920 winning percentage and a record of 23-2, 10-0 in conference games. The Southland Conference tournament is less than a month away, but SFA must finish off the regular season with matchups against McNeese State University at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday and Lamar University at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Fourteen games are left in the Southland Conference volleyball season, which means there are only 14 games left in Peyton Redmond’s collegiate career.
