Big Blue Volleyball looking to make deep run in 2017

The Millikin University Volleyball team is off to an impressive start in 2017 with an overall record of 12-3 and 2-0 in College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) play. The team is ranked 12th in the nation in the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) NCAA Division III Top 25 Poll.

The Big Blue Volleyball team is coming off back-to-back CCIW regular season championships, including a run to the Sweet 16 in the 2016 NCAA Division III Volleyball Tournament.

We caught up with the team to capture a 360 degree virtual experience of one of their practices. Seniors Alora Goodey, a communication major from Lincoln, Ill., and Meredith Artime, a nursing major from Forsyth, Ill., also took some time to talk about the Millikin Volleyball program and why they chose to come to Millikin.
