NCAA - The 2018 NCAA Division II Women's Volleyball Tournament field is set and three Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) teams will head to Springfield, Missouri and the campus of top-seeded Drury University for the NCAA Midwest Regional with action beginning on Thursday, November 15th.

The Bulldogs, who went unbeaten at 16-0 in league play this season, will face No. 7 Ashland (25-6) in the first round as the Eagles look to avenge an early defeat in last week's league tournament.
