After finishing 9-2 in conference play, the No. 21 Cornerstone volleyball squad finished third in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference and are the number three seed heading into the league tournament from Nov. 13 – Nov. 16. No. 4 Madonna University claimed the regular season volleyball title and the first WHAC automatic bid to the NAIA Nationals after posting a 11-0 league record. With the top spot, Madonna will host the quarterfinals, semis and championship on Nov. 15-16.
Cornerstone will receive a bye in the first round to join Madonna (1), Davenport (2) and UNOH (4) in the quarterfinals. The Golden Eagles will face the winner of Wednesday's, Nov. 13, match when Siena Heights (6) and Concordia (11) square off. Cornerstone will play Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. in Livonia, Mich.
Last year, Cornerstone fell to the number one conference seed, Madonna, in the WHAC semifinal match (0-3). The Golden Eagles are eager to get back to the hard court for redemption from the 2012 campaign.
The winner of the conference tournament will receive an automatic bid to the NAIA Women's Volleyball National Championship. Should Madonna also win the tournament, the tournament runner-up receives an automatic bid. Follow the Golden Eagles journey through the tournament on the WHAC website.
