Bumping through we Competition The Wolverine volleyball squad entered the season with high hopes for the veteran team. The Maize and Blue returned five of six starters from the 1 999 team that enjoyed one of the best seasons in the program ' s history. The Wolverines stormed into the season ranked within the pre-season top twenty-five for the first time in the program ' s history. The Wolverines seemed to be ready to fulfill the expectations set by the pre-season polls when they opened the season by winning eight of their first nine matches. However, the team could not maintain the momentum of their first ten matches throughout the season. The Wolverines torrid start was tempered by a lackluster mid-season performance. In the middle of October the team went on a four game conference losing streak. Losses against Iowa, Minnesota, Penn State and Indiana seemed ready to topple the season. November, however, saw the team turn the season around again, as the Wolverines won their first three games of that month against Illinois, Michigan State, and Ohio State, respectively. The streaky season was a result of having a very difficult schedule. Of their first 31 matches, 20 were against teams that participated in the 1999 NCAA National Championship Tourna- ment. Despite the extremely difficult schedule the team still man- aged to finish the season well above the .500 mark. The Wolverines were led by fifth year senior Sarah Behnke and senior Shannon Melka; the pair were returning captains from the 1 999 squad. When healthy, Behnke had been a consistent starter for the Wolverines since her freshman year. Behnke entered the season needing 483 kills to break former teammate Karen Chase ' s school record of 1261. Melka led the 1999 squad with 1374 assists, the second highest tally in the program ' s history, by Jon Hammer and Caelan Jordan A Maize and Blue defender dives to dig a spike and save the point.
