Illini VB off to slow start


CHAMPAIGN — The Illinois volleyball team is two weeks into their season. They sit at 2-3 after facing some tough competition that past two weekends.

“We’re still trying to figure things out,” senior Michelle Strizak said. “We have a lot of new pieces and new roles and this weekend was really frustrating that we didn’t get the results that we want but it exposed some things that we can work on and we’re just going to put that in to practice and hopefully get better this week.”
The Illini head to Oregon this weekend for the Nike Invitational. They will face Oregon on Friday, then Belmont and St. Mary’s on Saturday.
