Eagles looking to get back on track
The University of Southern Indiana volleyball team will return to action Tuesday as it travels across the Ohio River to take on Kentucky Wesleyan College. Match time is slated for 7 p.m. at the Woodward Health and Recreation Center in Owensboro, Kentucky.
After falling to the University of Indianapolis, the Screaming Eagles are looking to get back on track. They enter the match with a 12-4 record, but are 2-2 in the GLVC.
