The Eastern Oregon volleyball team defeated College of Idaho in five sets, (16-25, 25-23, 22-25, 25-22, 15-7) Friday night at Quinn Coliseum.

EOU took a early lead and never looked back, as they would knock off the No. 1 team in the conference in the final game, 15-7.

“Tonight was a great night for Mountie volleyball. We not only accomplished our goals but we played the high level of Mountie volleyball that we have been meaning to play and have had the potential to play all season” said head coach Kaki Morehead.
