Kirkwood Community College - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

No.8 Kirkwood spikers top Southwestern

The eighth-ranked Eagles settled down and rallied for a 21-25, 25-22, 25-18, 25-20 victory with a balanced attack to remain undefeated in the conference.

No.8 KCC volleyball team ready to go

The Kirkwood Community College volleyball team has been ranked No.8 in the first poll of NJCAA Division II teams for the 2013 campaign.

As far as Coach Jill Williams is concerned, the No.8 ranking is perfect. It's not too high and not too low. It shows respect for the program, yet tells the Eagles they have work to do to reach the upper echelon.

In other words, it's perfect.

Kirkwood opens the season Friday and Saturday with four matches at the Southeastern Volleyball Jamboree in West Burlington against good competition.
