For the first time in its history, the CMS women’s volleyball team won the NCAA Division III national championship. Led by a group of seniors who advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals as freshmen in 2014, the determined Athenas swept top-seeded Wittenberg University in the championships match on Nov. 18 in Grand Rapids, Mich.
