The Lady Blues will play two more matches at home this week as they look to extend a 13-match winning streak and remain undefeated in the MIAA. No. 7 Washburn (18-1, 3-0 MIAA) will host No. 23 Emporia State (13-4, 3-1 MIAA) Wednesday at 7 p.m. and then Northwest Missouri (9-10, 1-2 MIAA) Saturday at 1 p.m. in Lee Arena. The Lady Blues are 4-0 at home and are 12-0 overall in the month of September.
A pair of wins this week would make the Lady Blues 5-0 to start the MIAA season, tying a school record set last year. Washburn will be facing its third ranked opponent in as many weeks after ESU jumped into the national rankings at No. 23 while the Lady Blues and Bearcats will be facing each other for the second straight week after Washburn won, 3-1 in a non-conference match at NWMSU last Tuesday.
Erica Cowhick will enter the week 21 digs away from becoming the first Lady Blue to reach 2,000 digs and the fourth in the MIAA while coach Chris Herron is three wins away from tying for most in school history.
