The Bobcats beat Nicholls State, 3-0 (25-18, 25-11 and 25-15) on Oct. 22 before sweeping Southeastern Louisiana (25-20, 25-21, 25-20) on Oct, 24.
With those victories, the Bobcats improved to 12-12 overall and 6-3 in the Southland Conference. They are tied for third in the league with Stephen F. Austin. Central Arkansas (10-0) leads the league, followed by Sam Houston State (9-1).
Amber Calhoun and Jessica Weynand both finished with eight kills against Southeastern Louisiana, while Matti Schumacher added six.
