Women’s volleyball takes fourth in the nation

The Kirkwood women’s volleyball team placed 4th at the NJCAA Division II National Championships on Saturday, Nov. 17. They lost the first two games against Johnson County but then came together before winning the third and fourth games and evening out the field going into the last game. 

In the fifth and final match Kirkwood lost with a score of 15 to 10. KCC’s highest scoring player was Alexa Aldrich-Ingram who scored 21 points. The team was further helped by Lauren Keane who totaled 42 assists.

 Although not bringing home a championship, being 4th in the nation was still a reason to celebrate when taking into consideration this is the best they’ve played since 2003 when they won the national title. In the 2016/2017 tournament they placed fifth showing improvement.

Head Volleyball Coach Jill Williams said, “Looking back at it (the national championship), it was everything that we had hoped for and expected throughout this season, in what we were training for and playing for. You know the competition we had for in this schedule all season long led us to the final four, it led us to believe we could compete in the top four in the country and we did.”
