CSU Volleyball scores third Horizon League championship win and brings home MVP title

Cleveland State University women’s volleyball won the Horizon League Championship on Nov. 22 against Valparaiso University, shutting it down with a 3-0 game.

This is the third Horizon League Championship for Cleveland State volleyball, under the same coach, Chuck Voss. Voss has been the team’s coach for the past 15 years.

“Those guys [CSU], they’ve done this all year for us,” Voss said. “When they do make mistakes, they always come back with a positive play — they’ve been consistent all year.”

The Vikings had commanding wins in each of the three matches: 25-13, 25-16 and 25-18.

Gina Kilner was a strong player throughout the game as she assisted with 35 of the 42 kills.

After this match, three of Cleveland State’s players earned a spot on the Horizon League All-American team. This includes players Grace Kauth, Dayna Roberts and Alexis Middlebrooks.

Middlebrooks also earned Horizon League Tournament MVP, after making 23 kills and 14 blocks throughout the two tournament games last week.

The game was broadcast live on ESPN 3. The Woodling Gym was full of Cleveland State supporters.

Fellow Cleveland State students and family members wore Viking colors to create a sea of green and white in the stands.

As Horizon League Champions, the Cleveland State volleyball team will advance to the NCAA regional championships.

They will be fighting against the University of Southern California in San Diego on Dec. 3.
