PORTALES — When the Eastern New Mexico University volleyball team hosts Lone Star Conference South Divisin foe Texas A&M-Kingsville on Thursday night, the Zias are shooting for the moon.

ENMU athletiec director and volleyball coach Mike Maguire said a cookout is planned outside the arena at 6 p.m., with the match starting at 7 p.m. Breaking the record is a tall order — the mark of 5,025 was set in last year’s national championship match between Grand Valley State (Mich.) and Neb.-Kearney.

Neither team is in contention for the LSC South title, but each of their last three matches have gone a full five games.
