ORLANDO -- The Illini Elite volleyball club is getting used to transporting hardware from Orlando back to Central Illinois.

The most recent in a long line of trophies comes back to the Land of Lincoln after a third place finish at the Wide World of Sports Complex's national tournament. There the 14U Cardinal squad beat out clubs from much larger cities to take home hardware.
