This past Friday our Bearcat volleyball team beat Truman in an exciting five set match. Our team deserved this win. The players have been battling in practice every day and have lost several very close matches in the past few weeks. Last Tuesday, we lost a close five set match to the Missouri Western Griffons. It was really tough to be edged out at the last second and the girls proved that they were hungry for the win on Friday. Our team is starting to find our identity and proving that we are a team that will fight until the final point. We have about a month left for the volleyball season, and we still have so much to prove.
This Wednesday marks our annual “Pink Out” game against Central Missouri, who is nationally ranked. This exact match last year ended in a thrilling five set win over Washburn, who was ranked number 2 in the nation at the time. Bearcat Arena was packed with fans in pink that were there to support the athletes as well as those who have battled breast cancer. We hope to have a similar outcome at the match this year. Our fans have truly been amazing this season and have supported this team through everything. We hope that we continue to receive the support and watch this team reach their potential. So everyone, please come to Bearcat Arena this Wednesday at 7 p.m. and wear pink!
