The Eutectic volleyball team concluded the 2014 season last night, Thursday, Nov. 7, with a loss to Lindenwood University-Belleville, 3-0.

Fourth-year leaders Kaitlyn LaBoube and Kelsey Toler were honored before the match for their four years of commitment and contributions to the team. Teammates and family showered them with gifts and love on the court as fans applauded their accomplished STLCOP careers.  

Once the match began, the Euts pulled ahead of the Lynx early, when first-year defensive specialist Thao Nguyen served five points in a row. But the Lynx had their own serving machine in outside-hitter Stephanie Cathcart, who served seven in a row to lead the Lynx to a 25-21 first-set win. The Lynx dominated the second set 25-14, winning fourteen points in a row under setter Kacie Wahlig’s difficult serve. In the third set, the Eutectics appeared to re-focus and trade points with the Lynx, but would end up losing 25-20.

Fourth-year setter Kaitlyn LaBoube had three aces on the night, tying the STLCOP record for Career Service Aces at 176 – a record held by Chrissi Glastetter since 2002. LaBoube also had 14 digs and 24 assists in the match, finishing her Eutectic career as the STLCOP career record holder in both categories. Second-year hitter Katie Krajczar led the team with nine kills in the match.

The Eutectics finished the season with a 9-14 record overall. They finished 11th of 13 teams in the AMC with a conference record of 2-10. LaBoube’s season statistics ranked in the top-ten in the conference in four different categories: assists (sixth), assists per set (sixth), aces per set (ninth), and digs per set (fifth). Third-year hitter Alyssa Hitpas ranked fifth in kills per set and third-year libero Mallory Mensing was ninth in digs per set.
