Home basketball games at Lamar Community College have been further postponed due to a shipping delay with the new scoreboards. The new estimated arrival for the scoreboards is Tuesday, November 13. If all goes well with the installation, the Lopes will host two home games this week on Wednesday and Thursday, November 14 and 15.
The season's end came sooner than hoped, leaving the Lamar Community College volleyball team to reflect on season full of success while learning from its postseason shortcomings.
The Lopes (18-14) fell to Casper in straight sets (20-25, 20-25, 20-25) on October 31 in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during the first round of the Region IX Tournament. It was a bitter end for a team with eyes on making a third straight postseason run.
