The Truman volleyball team put together a 17-win campaign in 2015, highlighted by a 2-1 weekend at the Midwest Regional Crossover and a home win against nationally ranked Lewis (Ill).

The Bulldogs went 5-3 through the opening two weekends of non-conference tournament play before going on a run that put the team at 13-6 in mid-October. However, a 1-6 stretch through late October put the squad in a tough spot, with a late-season rally not serving as enough to qualify for the NCAA tournament.

Senior middle hitter Ali Patterson was named All-GLVC, joining the second team and earning a fourth all-conference selection. The two-time All-American hit .330 on the season with 2.14 kills and 1.12 blocks per set. Junior outside hitter Kayla Bastian averaged a team-best 2.97 kills per set and added 3.97 digs per set.

The Bulldogs graduate five seniors and will open the 2016 season on the road, Sept. 1.
