TROY, AL. - The Troy University volleyball team heads north to Normal, Alabama Wednesday night to face the Bulldogs of Alabama A&M at 6 p.m., in the final non-conference match of the season for the Trojans.

Troy is led on the season by senior Megan Henderson, junior Natasha Kolunija and sophomore Devin Von Pingel
