After three wins over the weekend against Hunter, Mt. St. Vincent, and Newbury, we have been gearing up for one of the biggest tournaments of the year, the Juniata College Invitational. We will be playing four matches, including two matches against Juniata and Nazareth, two of the tougher teams in Division III.
The preparation in practice has been difficult as the team has been pushing each other to achieve a higher level of play. Between practice and working with our strength and conditioning staff, the team has been getting stronger everyday.
In addition to our volleyball prep, a couple of the guys had exams, papers, and class work has been rescheduled and assigned for later dates. It was important to take care of the academics commitments especially since SCVB departs on Thursday night after practice for a 7 hour road trip to Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.
This is a huge weekend for us as we get a chance to compete with two teams that are ranked in the top 10 nationally in matches that could have major playoff implications come April. Let’s crush it SCVB!
