The Redbird volleyball team picked a good night for an epic comeback.
The Illinois State volleyball team dropped the first two sets but stormed all the way back to earn a hard-fought, five-set win over visiting Valparaiso on Saturday night before a season-high crowd of 1,575 in its annual Pack the Arena match. The Redbirds won by scores of 19-25, 21-25, 25-22, 25-19, 15-12.
It was Illinois State's first comeback from a 0-2 deficit in a match at Redbird Arena since 2014.
GLT's photo intern Carleigh Gray was there and shared these photos from the big night.
The Redbirds are back in action Friday, Oct. 13, at home against Bradley.
