HANCEVILLE, ALA. – Wallace State’s volleyball team swept a pair of conference matches against Southern Union and Lawson State at Tom Drake Coliseum on Wednesday night.

Wallace State sophomore CeCe Hall combined for 33 kills and 11 blocks two days after being named the Alabama Community College (ACCC) Player of the Week, and the Lions (21-4, 9-0 ACCC) remained perfect in conference play, defeating Southern Union 25-11, 25-8, 26-24, and following it with a 25-5, 25-20, 25-15 triumph over Lawson State.

“It’s important to get two more conference wins. We’ve got to continue to improve though,” said Wallace State coach Randy Daniel. “We’ve got to play with more energy and to find our identity.”
