The Wildcat’s Volleyball team is approximately halfway through their season and their current overall record stands at 9-14 and 3-4 in Heart of America Conference play.

The Wildcats opened conference play against tough opponents in no. 17 ranked Central Methodist University and no. 7 ranked Grandview University. After dropping the opening conference games, the Wildcats got back on track by going on a three-game winning streak defeating William Penn University, Missouri Valley College and Culver-Stockton College.

The Wildcats will look to get back on track on Oct. 1 at Benedictine College after dropping their last two games to MidAmerica Nazarene and Evangel University. The Wildcats currently stand in fifth place in the Heart of America- South division. Only the top five teams in the North and South division in the Heart of America earn spots in the Heart of America Conference tournament. The Wildcats will need to finish their season strong in order to maintain a spot in the conference tournament.
