EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - Cait Egan led all players with 13 kills Monday as Western Illinois defeated Southern Illinois University Edwardsville 25-18, 25-21, 27-25 in college volleyball action.

The Leathernecks used seven service aces to keep the Cougars on their heels. "They served well. They had a good serving strategy," said SIUE Coach Todd Gober.

The Cougars were poised to take the third set at 25-24 only to drop the next three points to the Leathernecks. Egan led WIU with a .429 hitting percentage while teammate Katie Hosteng added 11 kills on a .400 hitting percentage.
