Cougars Next Take on Bradley, Western Illinois

Oct. 2, 2009

EDWARDSVILLE, ILL. - Illinois is the theme for the next two matches for the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville volleyball Cougars.

SIUE, 1-15, travels Sunday to take on Bradley in Peoria. The first serve is set for 2 p.m.

"We have enjoyed some time off to be able to prepare for our games against Bradley," SIUE Coach Todd Gober said.

Bradley comes into the match with an 8-9 record.

The Cougars return home to play host to Western Illinois on Monday at 7 p.m. at the SIUE Student Fitness Center. The Leathernecks enter the weekend with a 5-10 record this season.

SIUE junior Sydney Winslow (Farmington, Mo.) leads the Cougars with 160 kills and 16 service aces. Junior Karie Downing (Ottumwa, Iowa) has 112 kills and 151 digs in 16 games.

"Sydney gives us a consistent performance every game." Gober said. "Downing has adjusted well after making the move from middle hitter to the outside."

Gober said he believes the details are an important piece to producing wins.

"We have to continue correcting some of the mistakes we have been making," Gober said. "When we do the little things on the floor, it makes a huge difference in the outcome."
