The CEU Lady Eagles closed out their regular season on a high note with a 25-8, 25-13 and 25-22 sweep over Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) last weekend.

The win leap-frogs them over the top of Snow in the Scenic Western Conference (SWAC) standing to finish fourth.

The Eagles end with a vastly improved record over last season.

Overall the team ended at 15-15 with a 4-6 conference record.

Last season they were 8-16 overall and 2-8 in the SWAC. The SWAC conference has three of the top four junior college volleyball teams in the nation and the Eagles beat one of them, CSI, this season.

In Friday's win Megan Garvin lead a balanced offensive attack with eight kills.

Sabrina Simas added seven. Julia Potts dished 15 set assists and Katie Palmer set up 11.

Cami Hussey served up four service aces. Alexis Adams scooped up nine defensive digs.

Coach Brent Martindale was glad to have the game behind them, "It was good. We took care of business. I got a chance to put in players who hadn't had much chance to play so far this season."

Salt Lake Community College beat Northern Idaho for the final match and so to the delight of the Eagles, the SWAC conference tournament will take place in Salt Lake this Friday and Saturday. In Salt Lake travel times are greatly reduced for the team.

Despite finishing ahead of Snow, the conference pairings do not change.

The Eagles and the Badgers will do battle for the fourth time this season. CEU has beat Snow twice, but in the last match-up, it was Snow out playing CEU for the win.

"I think we can beat them. We certainly have the ability to do it, but do we want it bad enough. We will find out. All our focus is on getting ready for Snow. After that, if we meet up with SL, then I hope for at least one game. Small victories. The bad thing with getting these victories this season is that no one is taking us lightly any more."

The format is a win or go home tournament. The victor of the match on Friday will face top seeded SLCC for the chance to move on.

CEU faces off with Snow at SLCC Friday at 1 p.m.
