24-game schedule ahead for volleyball

The Emporia State volleyball team has a busy schedule ahead of them this fall, with the most games on their schedule since 2003. The 24-game lineup has the Hornets at home 12 times this season.

Bing Xu, head coach, brought in four new prospects for the team, including three junior transfers and one freshman.  The Hornets are also returning nine players from last season, after losing three to graduation. 

“I think we have a great group right now,” Xu said. “All our returners are impact players and we have some good prospects coming into the program. I think they will present themselves well on the volleyball court and give their best each game.”

Practices began last Wednesday. Xu had the team doing three practices a day until school started Monday. 

“We want to get some things down, like ball handling, before school starts, and then we will go back to two practices a day,” Xu said.

The Hornets start out their season with the UIS invite, a three-game run in Springfield, Ill. the first weekend in September, before starting MIAA conference play. They kick off MIAA play with a home opener against William Jewell College Sept. 9.
