Conference action continues this weekend as Little Rock volleyball travels to ULM and Louisiana for a pair of matches this weekend. The Trojans will play the Warhawks in Fant-Ewing Coliseum on Friday at 6:30 p.m., before traveling to Earl K. Long Gymnasium to take on Louisiana on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

Little Rock will be playing for its 30th consecutive win against ULM — a streak that began in 1992. The Trojans own an all-time record of 29-2 against the Warhawks and are undefeated at 14-0 when playing in Monroe. ULM’s only two wins in the series came in the first two meetings in 1991 and 1992.

Against Louisiana, Little Rock owns the series lead at 37-9 and has won four of the past five meetings. Last year, the Ragin’ Cajuns took a five-set win in Little Rock before the Trojans overcame a 2-0 deficit to win in five sets in Lafayette. Little Rock is 13-4 all-time against Louisiana in Lafayette.
