St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 29, 2014 - The No. 5-ranked Washington University in St. Louis volleyball team returns home for the first time in more than a month to conclude the regular season by hosting the Bears Invite Friday-Saturday, Oct. 31-Nov. 1.

Washington U. (27-4) enters the weekend with a seven-match win streak. The Bears are set to face Westminster College (Mo.) at 3 p.m. and Transylvania University at 7 p.m. Friday. Washington U. closes its regular-season schedule by taking on Hendrix College at 10 a.m. and No. 19 Millikin University at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
