UMSL senior Weslie Gaff hit a career milestone this weekend after achieving her 1,000th career kill. Only six UMSL players have reached four figures in kills since the program's inception.

The University of Missouri–St. Louis volleyball team was held to just .088 hitting in a 3-0 loss at No. 23 University of Indianapolis Sunday afternoon (Oct. 9) in Great Lakes Valley Conference action.

The loss overshadowed a career milestone by senior Weslie Gaff, who became the sixth player in program history to tally her 1,000th career kill in the contest. The middle hitter finished with five kills, pushing her four-year career total to 1,005.

The host Greyhounds won by set scores of 25-16, 25-15, 25-12 and improve to 12-4 overall, including 10-1 in the GLVC, while UMSL slips to 12-6 and 7-4 in the league.

Senior Erin Higgins led all players with 10 kills, while sophomore Anna McNulty dished out 28 assists and finished with three blocks. Junior Katie Haseltine had a team-best nine digs.

The University of Indianapolis recorded 42 kills, while hitting at a .348 clip and held a 6-5 edge in blocks.

UMSL returns to action Friday and Saturday (Oct. 14 and Oct. 15) at the GLVC-GLIAC Crossover Tournament in Aurora, Ill.
