MILWAUKEE - The Marquette University women's volleyball team closed out its spring schedule Wednesday night in a four-set match with in-state foe, Wisconsin, at the Al McGuire Center.

The Golden Eagles are now finished with their four-match spring season, and will look towards their 10-day European Tour which will test their skills in international competition. The squad will have multiple days of practice leading up to the trip.

"One of our major goals for spring was to sustain good play," said head coach Ryan Theis. "We felt our good was pretty good but our bad was pretty bad."

Taylor Louis led the squad on the offensive end, registering 15 kills, and hit .227 during the match. The redshirt freshman finished the spring season with 36 kills in the three contests in which she played. Jenna Rosenthal also performed well, tallying seven kills while hitting at a .375 clip.

"Jenna had a really nice night, and Taylor led us in kills and made a few big plays," said Theis.

On the defensive end, junior libero Lauren Houg finished with a team-high 16 digs in the contest. She finished the spring with 51 digs in MU's four matches.

"There were some positives to take into the summer and our Europe training tour. We can always get better, but ultimately we will have to serve at a higher level and pass better as a unit to compete for a BIG EAST championship next season."

The Golden Eagles will now set their sights on their upcoming European trip this summer, which begins June 1 in Rome, in preparation for the 2016-17 season.
