Schreiner Soccer will be on the road in east Texas this weekend while the Volleyball team returns to Edington Gym to host Sul Ross State in conference action this Saturday afternoon. Next weekend will be a big one for SU sports. Schreiner hosts key matches vs. Mississippi College and Louisiana College and we also host the ASC Crossover Tournament both in Edington Center and at Tivy HS. More info on those events next week.  Here's a look back at the past week+ worth of action and a schedule of upcoming events.

Beat Howard Payne (3-1) at home, beat UT-Tyler (3-0) lost to UT-Dallas (1-3) and beat UMHB (3-2) last weekend at the ASC Crossover Tournament in Dallas. Lost to Our Lady of the Lake. Tiffany Miller was particularly effective in this series of matches. In the Crossover alone, she had 64 kills - including a school-record 39 in the win vs. UMHB. Also had 14 kills. Brittany Alvillar had 81 digs in the tournament - including 32 in the UMHB win - 3rd best in school history.
