East Campus vs Highland CC
Winner: East
Conf: 4-7   Overall Record 18-15
Set #1 – 25-13, Set #2 – 25-19, Set #3 – 25-14

This was a pretty quality win for us all things considered. Highland is a tough opponent, despite their record. They have taken the top teams in the conference right down to the wire. They recently took Kishwaukee, who is undefeated in conference, to 5 sets. They took us to 4 sets a month ago and they were all 2- or 3-point margins. Factor that, along with the fact that we had a 2 hour drive and were missing 2 regulars who are out injured, to sweep in 3 sets by convincing scores is a big accomplishment. We had a few struggles with our energy and communication a few times, but our execution and low error numbers really helped to push us over the top. We close out conference play tomorrow night at home against Sauk Valley with a chance to get our 19th win overall and a very respectable 5-7 conference record.
