WINONA, Minn. – The Gustavus volleyball team ended the regular season Saturday with a five-set loss at Saint Mary’s. The Gusties lost by set scores of 21-25, 25-21, 23-25, 25-17, 12-15, dropping to 21-7 overall and 9-2 in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Gustavus now prepares for the MIAC Playoffs as the No. 2 seed and will host the winner of No. 3 St. Thomas and No. 6 Concordia on Thursday.

“Today was a tough battle with long rallies,” Head Coach Rachelle Sherden said. “It was a close one that went their way. We weren’t ourselves in serve receive and defense. We talked about how important our mindset is about getting better and having a sense of urgency each day in practice leading up to playoffs. We are super excited for next week and today made us hungrier.”
