Tarleton State senior libero Emily Klein moved into second place on the school’s all-time digs list Tuesday with a 27-dig performance against St. Edward’s, giving her 1,474 for her career.

Teammate Stacie Murrah notched 18 kills in Tuesday’s four-set win to move her within six kills of becoming the school’s seventh player to reach 1,000.

“Everyone wants to be like these two players,” coach Mary Schindler said. “Emily and Stacie have not been concerned about the feats, but the players around them have been trying so hard to help them get there. Everyone wants to be like them and respects them.”

The TexAnns (12-8, 5-3 in the Lone Star Conference) travel to Midwestern State (11-9, 3-7) at 7 p.m. Friday and take on Cameron (6-15, 0-9) in Lawton, Okla., on Saturday. The TexAnns play six of their final eight games away from home. They are 7-5 on the road.

“Anyone will tell you that our gym is a tough place to play, so it is tough going on the road,” Schindler said. “Going on the road is something that we will be lucky to have these four seniors and their experience. We have been successful already on the road this season.”

Tarleton State football

After losing for the first time this season, the Tarleton State football team fell from 14th to 23rd in the AFCA Division II Coaches Poll.

Delta State kicked a 33-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining Saturday for a 38-36 nonconference win.

The Texans (5-1, 4-0) return to Lone Star Conference action at 6 p.m. Saturday against Texas A&M-Commerce at Memorial Stadium.

With a win, Tarleton would clinch at least a share of the LSC title for the first time since 2009.

Rams’ final stretch

Ending a three-game losing streak, the Texas Wesleyan volleyball team begins its final stretch toward the Sooner Athletic Conference tournament.

The Rams sit in fourth place in the SAC and begin a run of three of four games on the road, including a trip to third-place Oklahoma City on Saturday and a matchup against No. 17 Wayland Baptist on Nov. 2.
