Trolls no longer perfect in CCAC volleyball
“You hate to give one away,” Trinity Christian College volleyball coach Bill Schepel said in the wake of the Trolls’ loss to Cardinal Stritch University.
The defeat was Trinity’s first in Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference play. Coupled with victories over Judson University and Illinois Institute of Technology in last weekend’s CCAC Crossover Tournament at Purdue-North Central, the loss left the Trolls 14-1 in league play and 30-7 overall entering this past Tuesday’s match at league doormat Purdue University Calumet.
The idea now is to rebuild momentum going into the playoffs, which are right around the corner. Trinity hosts Indiana University-South Bend (12-4) tonight and the University of St. Francis (13-2) next Thursday. The two South Division rivals are enjoying good seasons, and the Fighting Saints, in particular, are a threat to the Trolls’ quest to capture the South title outright, to say nothing of the overall league banner.
