Winning streak replaces losses

The UNM volleyball team won its third straight game, which stands in contrast to its four-game losing streak earlier this month. Head coach Jeff Nelson said some of that improvement is thanks to senior Kelly Williamson.

New lineup fails in overtime

In the fifth and final set against San Diego State, the UNM volleyball team needed just one more point to take the win, but it came too late. The Lobos lost by 16-25, 25-23, 27-25, 21-25, 15-17 Sunday afternoon at Johnson Center, after having five consecutive match-points go to waste.

Young squad must step it up

The UNM volleyball team has 11 games left in its regular season, and there’s still one starting position to fill. This season, the Lobos have been shuffling through players trying to find the perfect complement to middle blocker Ashley Rhoades in the attack. “We’re really struggling in the outside hitting position in terms of people stepping up and being consistent,” head coach Jeff Nelson said.

Loss a matter of lost focus

The UNM Volleyball team won game one, and then it was done. The Lobos (7-4) fell to Texas Christian University (14-1) in three of four games: 25-18, 16-25, 21-25, 19-25, in front of 2,272 fans on ‘Jam Johnson’ and ‘Love Red, Live Green’ night Friday at Johnson Center.

3-game sweep signals comeback

The UNM volleyball team is finally over the tournament hump. The Lobos won their first tournament of the season at the Comcast/Sheraton Lobo Invitational over the weekend, going 3-0 against UC Irvine, Portland State and Montreal. In two previous tournaments the Lobos had failed to finish first, but head coach Jeff Nelson said everything came together this time around.

Breaking the slow start habit

For the UNM volleyball team, the third time will hopefully be the charm. After losses in the championship matches against Nebraska and Northern Arizona University (NAU) in each of the team’s first two tournaments, the Lobos host the Comcast/Sheraton Lobo Invitational this weekend as they try to win their first tournament of the season.

After historic season, team celebrates re-berth

It’s tournament time for the UNM volleyball team – again.

'Old' coach retools culture

Jeff Nelson just wants to talk about volleyball — nothing more, nothing less. The fourth-year head volleyball coach is on the cusp of a tremendous accomplishment: his 500th college match as a head coach. But when Sports Information Director Frank Mercogliano reminded Nelson about that piece of trivia, Nelson tried to dodge the topic with a clever quip. “So old,” he said.

Lobos swept the Falcons

Housed. The UNM volleyball team cruised Thursday with a 3-0 win over Air Force in Mountain West Conference volleyball action. After being away from Johnson Center the past two weeks, the Lobos swept the Falcons in three sets for their first MWC win of the season. The Lobos dropped a 3-0 decision at San Diego State in their conference opener last week. Head coach Jeff Nelson said it was pleasant to see UNM return to its winning ways. “We knew (the Falcons) were going to come out hard and put up a fight,” he said.
