LAKE CHARLES—League-leading McNeese volleyball will play its final two regular-season games this weekend when the Cowgirls travel to Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (10-18, 10-4 SLC) on Thursday for a 6: 30 pm followed by a 10th game at Incarnate Word (6-18, 5-9 SLC) Saturday.

McNeese (15-13, 11-3 SLC) moved into first place with a 3-2 home win over Houston Christian on Tuesday night and will look to close out the season against both the Islanders and Cardinals. The Cowgirls defeated TAMU-CC in five sets and UIW in four sets almost a month ago.

The Icelanders enter the game in a three-way tie for second place with HCU and Southeastern, all three teams are one game out of first place. UIW enters its Thursday game at HCU ranked eighth.

Kendall Glueck continues to lead the Cowgirls with 325 kills, but Skyeler Embry has emerged as another offensive threat for the Cowgirls over the past two games. Embry has recorded a double-double in the past three matches and is coming off a career-high 19 kills and a career-high 21 digs in the win over HCU.

Other Cowgirl leaders are Mia Perales with 627 assists, Bailey Tillman (512 digs) and Sanni Rantanen has a team-high 120 blocks and 32 service aces.

McNeese will close out the regular season next week against Southeastern and Lamar.
