Another outstanding season ended one game too soon for the Viterbo volleyball team. The V-Hawks fell to Missouri Baptist University 3-0 on Saturday in the NAIA Volleyball National Championship in Sioux City, Iowa. Viterbo finished the season 40-5, the second-most wins in school history.
The V-Hawks also fell in the national semifinals in 2014 after a 3-0 loss to University of Texas at Brownsville.
Viterbo spent the entire season ranked inside the NAIA Top-25, ascending to its first-ever No. 1 overall rating in October. The V-Hawks captured the North Star Athletic Association regular season and tournament titles and received a No. 2 overall rating in this year's tournament.
Viterbo loses three seniors - Erin Mulcahy, Jennifer Krentz, and Jess Jerde - to graduation.
