The South Winn volleyball team (17-12, 7-3 UIC) closed out the regular season with style Tuesday night, defeating Postville 3-0.
The Warriors won by scores of 25-12, 25-9 and 25-8.
"We played very strong and consistent all 25 points, for three sets, which we have had a hard time doing this year," said Co-Coaches Darcy Einck and Robin Gossman. "Our defense has been playing very well, allowing us to generate a quicker offense.
