PEORIA, Ill. -- Playing its first non-conference match in more than a month, the Eureka College volleyball team earned a 25-19, 25-17, 25-20 victory over Robert Morris-Peoria, Saturday afternoon at the Riverplex in Peoria, Ill. The victory was Eureka’s third straight in the all-time series against the Eagles.
Sophomore outside hitter Peyton McAtee (Morton, Ill./Morton H.S.) led an efficient Eureka (6-15) offense with eight kills.
