Green Sweeps Gold in SLU Intersquad Green and Gold Match

HAMMOND, La. – The Green team posted a .336 attack percentage on the way to a 25-16, 25-22, 25-20 win over the Gold team in the Southeastern Louisiana University volleyball team’s preseason intersquad Green and Gold match Thursday night in the University Center.
Jolie Hidalgo highlighted the Green team’s attack with 12 kills, while reigning Southland Conference Freshman of the Year Cicily Hidalgo posted a double-double with 11 kills and a match-high 18 digs. Peyton Stokely contributed 39 assists, while Crispin Adams hit a blistering .636 for the match with eight kills in 11 total attacks.  
2020 SLC Freshman of the Year Kailin Newsome paced the Gold team with a double-double effort (12 kills, 11 digs) of her own. Kenzie Smith nearly joined her and Cicily Hidalgo in the double-double listings, finishing with nine kills and eight digs. Gracie Duplechin finished the match with 30 assists for the Gold, which finished with a .175 attack percentage – including a .308 mark in the final set.
“Green passed well throughout the match and Gold flipped the switch in the third set, which led to the high attack percentage,” Southeastern head coach Jeremy White commented. “Peyton Stokely got a lot of different people involved and did so efficiently. We need to hit .250-plus as a team to win the Southland Conference and what we saw tonight gives us confidence that we can do so.”
Next up for the Lady Lions will be a 3 p.m. exhibition versus ULM Saturday in the University Center.
“We need to a little better job blocking against the outside,” White said. “We just need to do a better job in general reading the game on that side of the court.”
The season officially opens Aug. 26 with SLU facing Tulane (1 p.m.) and Prairie View (4 p.m.) on the opening day of the Katrinka Crawford Invitational in Beaumont, Texas.
Hammond will also serve as the host for the 2022 Southland Conference Tournament, set for Nov. 17-20.
