Cameron Gliddon was the named the NAIA national tournament MVP after the Eagles won the second national crown in school history by winning five consecutive games in six days, culminating with a 72-69 victory over Oklahoma Baptist in the championship game last March.

Dan Fisher is well aware that the performance of his women's volleyball team at Concordia University last season has raised expectations. A 36-match winning streak and reaching the championship match in the NAIA national tournament have a funny way of doing that. But whatever is expected of his team outside of their practice gym pales in comparison to the expectations inside that gym. "The best thing about this year is we don't need to talk about what our goals are," Fisher said.

Being hit by a drunk driver and watching her parents divorce doesn't sound like the recipe for creating a business that fosters romance, but that's what happened for one 19 year old. Alyssa Shapiro has used her negative experiences to start Seaside Romance. "If it only affects 10 to 15 couples, that's OK with me," the Concordia University student said.
