On Saturday, they will look to continue their winning streak as they take on Georgetown College at 8:30AM and Trinity Christian at 12:30PM.
A look at Cornerstone
Cornerstone Head Volleyball Coach Ryan Campbell enters his fourth season at the program's helm.

The Golden Eagles return seven players from last year's squad and addition to its returners, Cornerstone welcomes six newcomers on the roster-Cailie Johnson, Murphy Heyer, Becky Albrecht, Johanna Egerer, Megan Newhouse, and Chelsea Lake.
