Volleyball wins again-now let's beat #20 Purdue Sunday!

Today they beat Oakland in South Bend, a team that was 3-1. So far the team with a new coach has been doing great and is now 4-0 winning all 12 sets. Most wins have been very easy except for when they came back from down 24-19 in the second set of the Golden Dome championship match to Northern Kentucky to fight off 5 set points to win 28-26.

Junior Jemma Yeadon is leading the team with kills as expected, but seniors Nunge, DeJarld, & Morningstar are still making a big impact. The big news is the impact of three Freshman, setter Zoe Nunez (named ACC co-freshman of the week her 1st weekend), Charlie Niego (2nd on the team in Kills), and Sydney Bent. Also Sophone Hannah Thompson has played well on the block.

The Purdue match at West Lafayette will be a real test and it is on nationalTV (ESPU). Luckily the ACCN matches are still free (with ESPN) as I watched today's match live and got caught up on the other three matches on replay. It would be great to hear other folks impressions of this year's team if you've seen them live or on TV.
