Posted on September 17th, 2016 by

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – The Gustavus volleyball team competed in the UW-Eau Claire Invite on Saturday and came away with a pair of victories to improve to 10-2 overall. The Gusties opened the day with a shutout win over Lakeland and followed with a four-set win over Dominican.

“We served aggressively today,” Head Coach Rachelle Sherden said. “We were a little up and down and needed to make some adjustments offensively and defensively to slow Dominican down. But it was great to come away with a couple wins.”
