Senior Rose Griffin was named the Midwest Conference Offensive Performer of the week after leading the Knox volleyball team to two more wins this week.
Both wins, over Rockford University and Iowa Wesleyan University, respectively, came in straight sets. These two victories bumped the team’s win streak to six straight games before falling to MacMurray College in four sets on Monday.
In the win over Rockford University, Griffin reached her 990th career kill, moving her into third place all-time in the Knox record books.
Just two days later, Griffin added to her tally, eclipsing 1,000 career kills.
On Monday, the Knox squad faced off against MacMurray College and Robert Morris University-Springfield in a doubleheader.
After falling to MacMurray, Knox routed Robert Morris in straight sets. Between the two matches, Griffin added 31 more kills to her career tally.
On Wednesday, the Knox volleyball team faced off against Illinois College in their first conference game of the year.
Moving into the conference schedule with seven wins out of their last eight games, Knox volleyball hopes their momentum carries them to a strong conference season.
