The Jackson State women's volleyball team continues its recent dominance by beating rival Alabama A&M 3-1 in Southwestern Athletic Conference Tuesday night at the T.B. Ellis Gymnasium. During JSU's Dig Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness night, the Lady Tigers held off a tough Lady Bulldog team. JSU won by a score of 25-19, 25-21, 25-27 and 25-22.
The match pitched two of the better teams in the SWAC against each other. AAMU won the conference championship two seasons ago and JSU captured the title last season.
JSU's Christine Edwards dominated, as she finished with a season high 30 kills to go along with her nine digs. Jenna Siddiqui recorded 48 assists and 13 digs.
Clairissa Moore led AAMU with 17 kills.
