Quick Hits
COMING IN: SIUE has lost its last two matches to Illinois State and Evansville. Four of SIUE's five losses have been at the hands of Missouri Valley Conference opponents.

TOURNAMENT OPPONENTS: This is the first meeting between the Cougars and Wofford (7-6 record) or Stetson (1-9). This is the third meeting between SIUE and USC Upstate (3-7). The two teams played each other twice when both were at the Division II level. SIUE won both contests in 1997 and 1998.

TOURNAMENT VICTORY: SIUE collected its first tournament victory in the Division I era at the Drury Inn ISU Classic in Terre Haute, Ind. The Cougars lost to Indiana State in five sets but came back for a four-set win over Montana State and a three-set sweep over Western Carolina. With SIUE, Indiana State, and Montana State all finishing with a 2-1 record, SIUE was handed the tournament's first-place finish with tiebreaker rules in effect. SIUE had three players listed in the All-Tournament team. Sydney Winslow was named the tournament Most Valuable Player after hitting .341 with 40 kills. Freshmen Lexi Cibuka and Kelsey Augustine also were named All-Tournament.

AIMING FOR 1,000: Sydney Winslow needs 59 kills to become the seventh player in school history to record 1,000 kills. Winslow is eight overall currently and next must pass Emily Rahn, who recorded 976 from 2005 to 2008.

FRESHMEN STEP UP: Cibulka and Julia Whitfield are just behind senior Sydney Winslow for the team lead in kills. Winslow has connected on 83 kills followed by 69 from Cubulka and 64 from Whitfield.

NEXT UP: SIUE returns home for a Tuesday match against in-state rival Chicago State. Match time is 7 p.m. at the Vadalabene Center.
