Volleyball Season Opener This Weekend


#2 Texas Volleyball opens their season at Long Beach State this weekend.  The Gazelles will be facing #23 Long Beach State on Saturday night and #15 San Diego on Sunday evening.

Coming off last year's disappointing national semi-finals loss to Stanford after being up 2-0, the Gazelles are shooting for nothing less than a National Championship.  Having lost only Lauren Paolini, middle blocker; Jerritt Elliott simply reloaded with the #1and #5 national recruits.  6'3" Bailey Webster is the highest rated recruit in last year's class and is expected to start.  Sha'Dare McNeal is a 6'1" middle blocker who is pushing veterans Jennifer Doris and Rachael Adams for playing time.  Rachael Adams was expected to take over Paolini's vacated spot.  Ashley Engle, Destinee Hooker and Heather Kisner are this year's seniors. 

This weekend Texas begins a challenging preseason schedule with their trip to Long Beach.  They are 0-3 versus Long Beach and 0-1 versus San Diego.  They followup the West Coast trip with a trip to the volleyball hotbed of Honolulu, Hawaii where they will face another group of ranked teams: host Hawaii, California and St. Louis.
