Third-year outside hitter Alyssa Hitpas broke the St. Louis College of Pharmacy record for Career Kills on Thursday, Oct. 16, during a Eutectic win at MacMurray College. The record, held by Eutectic alumnus Chrissi Glastetter since 2002, was 917. With three matches left in the regular season and another year of eligibility left next year, Hitpas has already racked up 955 career kills and is averaging 13.65 kills per match this season. Hitpas joins teammates Kaitlyn LaBoube (assists and digs) and Mallory Mensing (serves received), who each hold STLCOP career records of their own. LaBoube, in her final year of eligibility, is chasing the STLCOP career service aces record, and currently needs only eight to tie it.

The Eutectic team has had a strong second half of the 2014 season. Despite a tough conference schedule, the Euts have persevered, finding wins when they need them.  The team claimed its first-ever win over Kaskaskia College early in the season at home, and then reaffirmed that outcome with another win over the Blue Angels on the road on Oct. 27. The team has also enjoyed wins over AMC teams Harris-Stowe State University and Benedictine University-Springfield, along with NCAA Division III MacMurray College.

Hitpas leads the team in kills, but is backed up by fourth- and second-year blockers Kelsey Toler and Ashley Walter, along with second-year outside hitter Katie Krajczar – each with over 100 kills on the season so far.  Walter leads the team in blocks with 29 (1.45 per match), while Toler has 28, and LaBoube has racked up 287 digs (14.35 per match), followed closely by Mensing with 267.

The Euts are now 9-11 for the season (2-6 in the AMC) with three matches left in the regular season schedule. Next up, the Eutectics host AMC’s Freed-Hardeman University on Saturday, Nov. 1.
