Volleyball (Women's)

Lewis University is proud to announce that this is the first ever Women’s VB club team! Fourteen talented girls were chosen to represent the Flyers to form the first team. Practice has been going great and the girls already are good friends and even better teammates. Tournaments for this year are to be determined, as no one knows that we have a team yet! We will be on the lookout for any available tournament in order to test our strengths and see how we match up against previously formed teams. This will be a huge year for these girls, and necessary preparation for the years to come for this club to remain prominent. Practices are Tuesday and Thursday, 6-8 p.m.

Water Polo

The Water Polo Club team was started two years ago and has slowly grown. It is made up of players who played all through their high school career, and players who have never picked up a water polo ball. Together the team meets up to help teach inexperienced players the sport, work on their skills, get in a workout, and most importantly, have fun. The club has competed against Harper Community College and plans to expand in size to compete against more clubs in the area. Practice is held on Tuesday nights.
