The Southern Miss volleyball team lost its first contest in four sets against the Oklahoma Sooners, but rebounded to sweep Nicholls State in three sets at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Classic in New Orleans on Saturday.

Southern Miss won the first set against the Sooners by a score of 29- 27. Despite the early positive start, nine blocks and a combined 60 kills for the Sooners allowed them to win the last three sets by scores of 25- 18, 25-17 and 26-24, respectively.

Catherine Repsher lead the Golden Eagles in kills against Oklahoma, while Alexis Coombs provided two solo blocks and five block assists for the team. Rachel Manriquez, Alyssa Enneking, and Madison Drescher gave the Sooners a boost over four sets with 19, 18, and 11 kills, respectively.

The Golden Eagles fortunes turned around in their second matchup against the Nicholls State Colonels. Behind 10 team blocks and 10 kills from Chandler Marshall and Alexis Coombs, Southern Miss defeated the Colonels 25- 17, 25-11 and 25-18 in three sets.

Coombs also provided a boost with six block assists against the Colonels. Kylie Grandy added two more service aces to her season total during the matchup, giving her 19 on the season.
