“The girls played great tonight and got the win!” said first-year Mustangs coach Jennifer Herman. “Overall, I am very proud of their defense and teamwork. We still have a lot to work on, but these ladies never fail to amaze me with their determination and heart.”

Ross Named NSAC Player of the Week!

Our NSAC Volleyball Player of the Week is outside hitter Nora Ross of Christendom College!

In last week’s action, Nora claimed nearly total 20 kills, and almost recorded a triple-triple between kills, aces, and digs. These achievements put the Tulsa, Oklahoma freshman near the top of the standings for overall kills for the USCAA.

Earning honorable mention this week is Mid-Atlantic Christian senior McKenna Griffin. McKenna has led the Mustangs in kills all season and this last week was no different against NC Wesleyan College with 6 kills and 2 blocks.

Congratulations to both of these outstanding student-athletes!
