After dropping the opening set 25-21, JSU (29-9) rallied to take the next three 25-17, 25-21, 25-22. In the fourth set,

A&M looked to be on the way to forcing a fifth and deciding set after jumping out to a 6-0 lead. But, with A&M leading 16-10, JSU went on an 11-3 run to take a 21-19 lead. The Lady Tigers never trailed again.

  1. Was great to be there supporting the Lady Tigers bring home the tournament tittle. Congratulations to the players and the outstanding coaching staff. The parents and the fans were also amazing. Off the NCAA tournament… and all I can say is GO TIGERS!!!

  2. I attended this year for the first time, 3 home volleyball JSU of the Lady Tigers and they awesome. Way to go and enjoy the victory of success!

  3. Congratulations, Lady Tigers!!! Awesome season, Awesome tournament! You looked great on the broadcast. I apprecate how fundamentally sound the team is. The passing was outstanding, and that foundation really pays off when you have LaToya’s excellent setting and a couple of fire hitters in Lady Chyna and Queen Christine. Coach Rose, what can I say? You have brought it home for your school, and we appreciate you so much! Maybe we’ll have better fortune getting some recruits from the Atlanta area now.
