Ravens Take Down Prairie Fire in Day 2 of Illinois College Invitational

The Anderson University volleyball team closed out Day 2 of the Illinois College Invitational with a split on Saturday in Jacksonville, Ill.
 
Anderson (1-3) took down Knox College (1-3) with a 26-24, 24-26, 25-23, 25-17 victory during the first match. Illinois College (3-0) then pulled out a 25-14, 25-17, 30-28 win in the second match. The Ravens finished the weekend with a 1-3 record for the tournament.
 
"This weekend proved to be disappointing, challenging and exciting all rolled into one," Coach Tami Miller said. "Our expectations were set higher than what we were able to achieve. We have work to do in regards to our fundamentals as well as our discipline. However, the potential that we saw on the court from this team does not dampen our excitement for the season and we witnessed some amazing fight in these young ladies that will add to their success."
