volleyball improving withevaylliatch The Wolverines set up a new season in Cliff Keen arena with a team full of fresh faces. Of the 16 women on the volleyball team 12 of them held sophomore or freshman status and seven members of the squad had never participated in a NCAA volleyball match when the season began. Together the team faced a challenging new season and high hopes of receiving a third consecutive bid to the NCAA Championship Tourna- ment. The opening matches frustrated the young team as the women came together for the first time. At the start of the Big Ten Season, with an unfortunate three loses already on the record, the Maize and Bluefell first to Northwestern and then to No. 9 Wisconsin. Head Coach Mark Rosen, admitted that the young team struggled with their intense travel sched- ule. " We play back-to-back nights on Fridays and Saturdays, and ourtravel partners are very spread out. We go from Penn State to Ohio State or Northwestern to Wisconsin or Minnesota to Iowa; we have to make some pretty significant trips with a one-day turn around. After playing on Friday night, somehow you have to get to your next opponent and play on Saturday night. It ' s a huge disadvantage when the otherteam is sitting at home. " Rosen continued optimistically when he said, " I love playing at Cliff Keen. The crowd is rowdy; it ' s fun and entertaining. All teams are the same at their home venues. It makes the players feel more comfortable if they ' ve got a crowd cheering for them. " And his confidence in the team proved to be justified the following week. Cliff Keen roared in celebration when the team returned home, regrouped and earned five straight wins. The Maize and Blue held a solid 8-6 season record and a 4-3 Big Ten Record. Perhaps the most impressive achievement this season was when the Wolverines stepped up to No. 1 1 Penn State. They took the Nittany Lions in a three-game sweep, which marked the high point of the women ' s season, since it was the first time they had beaten Penn State since 1 995 and just the second time ever. It was their biggest win yet, and one that made a difference, earning the team a third consecutive bid from the NCAA Championships with a 6-4 record. They were tied for a 4th-place ranking in the conference and the season ' s goal of a championship tournament bid was within reach. Strong leadership from Coach Rosen, and Associate Head Coach Leisa Rosen was recognized by the conference when they were inducted into the Ohio State ' s Hall of Fame. It was this leadership that brought the fresh faces of the team into the championship tournament. With growing precision, teamwork and dedication to the sport the Maize and Blue pushed to the end of the season.
