Volleyball wins Butler Classic


The Butler women’s volleyball team concluded a dominating run Saturday in the Butler Classic.

The Bulldogs (12-2) swept the Toledo Rockets for the championship title in three sets (25-21, 25-18, 25-16).

“It feels great to win the Butler Classic,” coach Sharon Clark said. “I think it’s a perfect ending to our non-conference schedule.”

Senior Morgan Peterson chalked up her fifth double-double for the season in an impressive tournament showing, picking up most valuable player honors in the classic.

Juniors Belle Obert and Erica Stahl joined Peterson on the All-Tournament squad, leading the attack in a flawless weekend for the Bulldogs.

Butler finished unbeaten after sweeps of Green Bay and Tennessee-Martin Friday.

Going against the Phoenix in their first match, the Bulldogs capitalized on every opportunity for the three set victory (25-19, 25-14, 25-21.)

The team was able to keep up its momentum going later in the evening, defeating the UT-Martin Skyhawks in three sets (25-18, 25-15, 25-17.)

The team will have a six-day break before making its Big East debut against Xavier (7-6) Friday at Hinkle Fieldhouse.

The match is set to begin at 7 p.m.
