SIUE volleyball team was forced off their cloud this past weekend. The Cougars, who were in first place in the GLVC's Green Division, now have a 5-2 GLVC record and a 10-9 overall record after falling at Wisconsin-Parkside and Lewis.
The Cougars play at Quincy University on Friday and then at the University of Missouri-St. Louis on Saturday. Quincy is 1-4 in GLVC play. UM-St. Louis has a conference record of 2-4. SIUE has defeated both of these teams at home, but SIUE volleyball Coach Todd Gober believes that they are playing better now than they were earlier in the season.
SIUE fell to UW-Parkside on Friday 3-1. Then Cougars were defeated by Lewis, who is 5-0 in conference play, 3-1 on Saturday.
"It was a frustrating weekend," said Gober. The loss to UW-Parkside was more upsetting because the Cougars play was flat and emotionless, according to Gober. SIUE hit better in the match with Lewis, Gober said.
"Jenny Franklin (LaSalle) had a big game against Lewis," said Gober. Franklin had 14 digs and 12 kills.
