Unfortunately, and completely understandably. with Hurricane Irma approaching Florida, the Active Ankle Challenge Tournament which AU was going to play in Gainesville this weekend has been cancelled. The Eagles were to have played #2 ranked Florida and #21 ranked Michigan State in the tourney. Instead, AU will go to North Carolina this weekend to take part in a quickly-arranged round-robin with UNC Greensboro, Coastal Carolina and Florida Atlantic.
Tough break for the team, which has won four straight matches since a tough 3-1 loss to Washington State, currently just outside the Top 25, in the Bender Blue Out a couple of weeks ago. Aleksandra Kazala was voted PL Player of the Week last week after winning tournament MVP at the Harvard Invitational, which AU won after beating Sacred Heart, Stony Brook and the host Crimson.
