UMHB hosts and wins ASC Volleyball Championship

To win the American Southwestern Conference Volleyball Championship Tournament (ASC) that UMHB hosted last week, the Cru began by winning the game Friday night, November 2, 2018. Then the Crusader Women’s Volleyball team took two, 3-1 victories on day two of the tournament. In the match against the McMurry War Hawks, the team began strong with two set wins. After the War Hawks took the third set, UMHB fought back and won the fourth.
Later that day, the Cru played the University of Texas at Dallas Comets and took the victory. On Saturday, the team faced the Comets once again to battle for the championship title. Both teams alternated wins in the first four sets, resulting in a fifteen point face-off in the fifth. The Comets took the lead at the start, but the Cru fought back to win the match against UT Dallas and ultimately, the 2018 title.
Three UMHB team members, Jenna Gillean, Corinne Novak and Miranda Klein, received the All-Tournament Team award. Miranda Klein also received the MVP award for the tournament.
The UMHB Women’s Volleyball team will now move on to Regionals this weekend.
Freshman pre-physical therapy major, Kayla Janikula, shared her thoughts about this season so far.
“We have a really special team. We have worked hard all year to win the conference tournament and it paid off. The team can’t wait to go to regionals this coming weekend and bring home some more success back to UMHB!”
