Lamar sports information

BEAUMONT — Lamar volleyball showed its ability in the second set and late in the fourth, but front-runner Texas A&M-Corpus Christi showed why it’s in first place when it downed the Cardinals 3-1 (16-25, 25-20, 12-25, 23-25) in Southland Conference action Thursday night at McDonald Gym.

The loss puts Lamar in need of a win Saturday against Incarnate Word – which fell in five at Houston Baptist – or a loss from Southeastern Louisiana at New Orleans to advance to the Southland Conference tournament for the first time since 2011.
