SFA Never Jokes About Its Work
The Mean Green plays SFA on Wednesday, Sept. 25, before opening up its first season of league play in Conference USA. NT first faced SFA in its inaugural year, 1976, and the two teams have seen each other 40 times since. SFA has the overal series lead, 23-17, and the Mean Green was swept by the Lady Jacks in their last meeting in 2012.


The Name's USA, C-USA
Mean Green volleyball makes it debut in Conference USA on Friday! Its first conference foe is East Carolina, an opponent NT has never faced before. It follows ECU with Middle Tennessee, a familiar opponent and one that NT last faced in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament last November, a four-set victory for the Mean Green.


Taking Care of her Odd-Job
NT hit Houston this past weekend for the Flo Hyman Collegiate Cup, a tourney that saw the Mean Green go 1-2 with a five-set loss to LSU as well as a sweeping victory over the host Cougars in their home opener. Despite the 1-2 record, freshman setter Amy Henard took care of business, and her performance earned her the team's first C-USA weekly award as she grabbed setter of the week honors for her 110-assist weekend (.362 set percentage).


Property of a Freshman
Lone freshman Amy Henard is ranked 37th in the nation in assists per set (10. 94), and she is ranked THIRD among freshmen in the same stat nationally.


The Girl With The Golden Arm
Senior captain Courtney Windham has proven as accurate as the golden gun in recent outings. Against Houston, she posted a .812 attack percentage, the highest single match attack percentage in C-USA this year. The .812 mark was good for the third-highest all time in NT single-match history. She also hit a .750 attack percentage vs. NW State, fifth all-time in the single-match NT records. She added a 12 assisted-block performance vs. TX State, tying the top all-time performance in NT history and cracking the top-10 list in C-USA history.


The Libero Who Dug Me
With her 47 digs in Houston, senior libero and captain Shelby Tamura moved up three spots in
the NT career digs list to 7th.
