2013 Volleyball Season

Recommended Posts

This volleyball team has amazing potential. They've shown for stretches that they can stick with quality teams from major conferences, they just lose focus at times and have a tendency to tighten up and force things when they lose a couple points. When that happens they give up points in bunches and that's the turning point of the matches they lost this weekend. Reduce and play through those and this team could make some noise come end of the year.

Texas A&M Press Release

http://www.aggieathletics.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=27300&ATCLID=209248226

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Texas A&M fought off a feisty North Dakota team in front of a rowdy crowd of 1,375 to win 25-17, 23-25, 25-16, 25-23 in the final match of the UND Classic at the Sioux Center.

Texas A&M Head Coach Laurie Corbelli quotes:

(On coming away with the win)

“I had to take a lot of deep breaths during that match. It was incredibly tight and that was a team that passed beautifully to their setter, so they were almost always in system. It just put a lot of pressure on our block. We didn’t get very many blocks, so we had to really dig down deep for our defensive play to pick up. It didn’t start out so great, but I was really proud of the total team effort that we showed tonight, especially on a visiting court with a good crowd against a team with all juniors and seniors. This was UND’s premiere match for the weekend. This is the one they really wanted, and we took it from them, and that feels really good for this young group.”

UND's three game attendance so far is 3603, which puts them well on their way to averaging more than 1000 per game. With NDSU and the Big Sky season still to come, think they will make 1000 / game with a lot to spare.

The UND gals rallied to pull out a 3-2 win over Florida A&M University at New Orleans tournament this morning.

Nice! Not sure what kind of team Fla. A&M is, but a road win is always good.

Good to hear that the vball team was able to come away with the W against Montana State. For whatever reason last year they couldn't seem to get over the hump when it came to the lady Cats (both games last year were 5 set heartbreak losses).

Lets see how much this team has improved tonight against Montana, UND was not able to get a road sweep last year and this would be a good chance to get one (although it might be tougher than it looks after Montana shocked UNC last night by sweeping them).

After a back and forth 2nd set, UND with a bit of a run. 15-11 UND in 2nd set

TO Griz.

Our blocking has looked strong in this set, making it difficult for Montana to get it across.
