Men's volleyball earns 5 MIVA honors

The 2022 season was one for the history books for Ball State men's volleyball (20-3, 12-2 MIVA). Following a first outright Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association regular-season championship since 1997, five members of the program have been awarded MIVA honors.

Cardinals crowned MIVA regular season champions

It has been an eventful 10 months for Ball State Men’s Volleyball (20-3, 12-2 MIVA) and head coach Donan Cruz, but Cruz can’t help but focus on one thing: enjoying the moment with the program.  From Cruz being named head coach of the Cardinals June 16 to the Cardinals defeating then No. 1 Hawaii (19-5, 4-3 BWC) twice in three days to, most recently, winning the Midwest Intercollegiate Volleyball Association regular season championship after defeating Purdue Fort Wayne (15-12, 6-8 MIVA) April 9, it's all happened in less than a year.
