St. Louis, MO, 10/2/21 – The Westminster College volleyball team was playing their third game in three days. Some might say they might be tired or run down.

The win was the Blue Jays fourth in a row and their record now sits at 6-9 and 1-1 in SLIAC play. Principia drops to 0-7.
Eryka Wanyonyi (Columbia, MO / Hickman) led the Blue Jays offense with eleven kills followed closely by Haley Menke (O'Fallon, MO / Fort Zumwalt West) with ten kills without an attack error while she hit a sizzling team high .526.
