Winning streak lasts

Despite only having seven players on the team this year, Florida A&M University’s volleyball team won its eighth consecutive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference volleyball championship, winning against Maryland Eastern Shore in a 3-2 (17-25, 25-15, 23-25, 31-29, 15-10) Sunday.

Head coach Tony Trifonov was named Outstanding Coach for the eighth straight year.

“It feels awesome to win the title with this team due to the adversity and injuries we have had this year, said Trifonov in a press release.

Florida A&M will advance to the NCAA Volleyball Tournament, which opens the weekend of December 4-7, for the eighth straight year and the ninth time in 10 years.
