Volleyball Claims Second Conference Crown

For the second time in program history, the Truman volleyball team can call themselves Great Lakes Valley Conference champions after sweeping McKendree at the conference tournament in East Peoria, Ill., Nov. 20.

Following wins against Drury in the quarterfinals (3-1) and No. 15 Lewis in the semifinals (3-2), Truman capped its remarkable run with a 3-0 victory to improve to 18-16 overall and two games above .500 for the first time this year. The win gives the team its second GLVC championship, its first since 2014.

The Bulldogs are now in the field of 64 for the Division II tournament. They are one of eight teams competing in the Midwest region and will take on Ferris State, Dec. 1 in Big Rapids, Mich.
