INDIANAPOLIS - The Marian University volleyball team came through on Senior Night to send the seniors, who were playing in their final regular season home match, out in style as the Knights breezed through a 25-17, 25-14, 25-12 win over Indiana University-East at the Physical Education Center on Wednesday night.

The seniors have at least one more home match, but close their final regular season with a win to improve to 17-10 on the season.

Senior Becky Gramer led the Knights in attack with a match-high 11 kills and also added eight digs in defense. Senior Kacie Kelly added five kills and a match-high 35 assists, while senior Katie Kaiser notched a pair of kills and nine digs. Senior Morgan Merrill hit the first serve before sitting out the rest of the match.

Freshman Emily Graves was fantastic in the MU attack after she finished with nine kills and a .533 hitting percentage. Junior Megen Ruff added nine kills and had a .438 hitting percentage, while freshman Lauren Gregory added eight kills. Freshman Taylor Greenan led the MU defense with a match-high 11 digs.

With the 11 digs, Greenan became the single-season record holder at Marian University with 533 digs on the season. She surpassed the record of 526 set by J'nai Lefevre in 2000. She is the second Knight to set a record in head coach Ashlee Pritchard's two years at MU.

The Knights will head to Indiana University-Kokomo for the regular season finale on Friday night at 7 p.m. MU has clinched the No. 4 seed for the 2013 Crossroads League Tournament and, due to tiebreakers, will likely face Grace College (19-15; 9-9 CL) in the opening round on Nov. 5. First serve is slated for 7 p.m. and the match will be video-streamed LIVE on the Knights Athletics Network at MUKNIGHTS.com.
