Undefeated Lady Vikings repeat as CIAA Eastern Division Champions
April Emory October 29, 2008
The Elizabeth City State University volleyball team clinched the 2008 CIAA Eastern
Division Championship with a three set sweep of the Virginia Union University Lady
Panthers (25-12, 25-12, 25-20) Tuesday night at the RL Vaughan Center.
ECSU has now captured back-to-back (2007, 2008) divisional crowns, the only two in
school history. They also continue to increase their school record for wins in a season
(24) and with one conference opponent remaining in the regular season they have not
lost a CIAA match this year.
Led by Chelsea Amick's game high 12 kills ECSU made quick work of the Lady Panthers,
sweeping the match in just one hour.
ECSU (24-9 overall, CIAA 12-0) will hold their final home game of the season on Thursday
at 6:00pm when they host Peace College in a non-conference volleyball match. Saturday,
they will travel to Virginia State to wrap up the regular season before entering the
CIAA Volleyball Tournament November 7-9 in Hampton, VA. For more information on ECSU
