Volleyball finishes season at MWC Tourney

The LU women’s volleyball team finished their season at the Midwest Conference Tournament two weeks ago. The Vikings won one game and lost two in the double-elimination tournament. The Vikings defeated Knox 3-1 and then lost their next two matches to St. Norbert 3-0 and to Beloit 3-0 to end their season. The young Vikings will not graduate a single player this season, so look for them to be more experienced and compete for one of the top spots in the MWC next fall
