VU Volleyball gets 2016 season rolling with pair of victories at Malcolm X Tri-Match

The Vincennes University Volleyball Team claimed both of its season opening matches over the weekend at the Malcolm X College Tri-Match in Chicago.
The Trailblazers (2-0) defeated both Malcolm X and Elgin in straight sets as VU prevailed over Elgin by scores of 25-22, 25-11, 25-20 before returning to the court later in the day to post a 25-18, 25-17, 25-23 victory over the hosts. The pair of victories launched VU's first season at the NJCAA Div. I level.
In the match-up with Elgin, VU registered 40 kills (led by freshman Erica Kik's 10), while turning in 30 assists (freshmen Gabrielle Medrado (pictured) and Cali Topolski both had 15) and 44 digs (11 by freshman Hannah Bullock and 10 by Medrado).
Against Malcolm X, the Trailblazers had 37 kills (eight by Medrado), 26 assists (Topolski with 13 and Medrado with 11) and 15 digs.
Up next for VU is a trip to Sinclair on Thursday for a 5 p.m. match. From there, the Trailblazers will travel to the Owens Invitational in Toledo, OH, for two matches on each day on Friday and Saturday. At Owens, VU will face the host Express at 11:45 a.m. on Friday. Later that day, the Trailblazers will take on Grand Rapids at 5 p.m. On the second day of the event, VU will hit the court vs. Lansing at 10 a.m. and tussle with Monroe at 3:15 p.m.

The Vincennes University Athletic Department hosts Play4Kay and raises donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund annually. VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State. He had the pleasure of meeting her while he was an assistant coach at Western Carolina University. This left a lasting impression on him and made this cause important to him and the Trailblazers.
