ELIZABETH CITY, NC - In a match that took less than an hour, the Elizabeth City State University volleyball team polished off Virginia Union University in three sets 25-8, 25-4, 25-13 Tuesday night at the RL Vaughan Center.
With the win the Lady Vikings capture their third straight Division title while finishing with a perfect 8-0 record in the CIAA East over that same time span.

The 50 minute match was the sixth time this season that the Lady Vikings disposed of their opponent in under an hour. They have now wrapped up their CIAA schedule and will enter next weekend’s CIAA Tournament in Hampton, VA as the top seed in the Eastern Division.
Senior Jennifer Hendy finished with a game high 9 kills while Xie’Ara Maybank-Smallings contributed 7 kills versus zero hitting errors and 5 solo blocks.
