UWM wins volleyball title
Panthers roll into NCAA tournament

The UW-Milwaukee volleyball team punched its ticket to the NCAA tournament Sunday.

Tournament most valuable player Elizabeth Egerer had 15 kills and the UW-Milwaukee controlled the contest from start to finish in rolling to a 25-15, 25-21, 25-16 win over Cleveland State in the Horizon League Tournament championship match Sunday at the Klotsche Center.

The Panthers (25-4) have now won the league tournament title for the seventh time and clinched their ninth NCAA berth.

UWM will find out its next opponent next Sunday at 5 p.m. when the NCAA selection show airs on ESPNews.

UWM, which won the league regular season crown and swept both of its tournament matches, has also won a school-record 18-straight matches overall.

The match never really in doubt as the Panthers led by at least nine points in each of the three sets.

UWM hit .308% while limiting second-seeded Cleveland State (21-7) to a .102% hitting clip.

Freshman Julie Kolinske added 13 kills and joined Egerer on the all-tournament team. Freshman Kayla Price was also on the all-tournament squad after tallying 36 assists to go with three kills and six digs in the victory.

Morgan Potter had 16 digs to lead UWM's defense.
