Winona State volleyball opens NSIC play tomorrow night
The Warriors are undefeated and ranked 9th in the
nation in this week's A-V-C-A poll.
Both marks are the best in program history.
With more here is News 8's Charlie Clifford.
Nine Warrior wins in nine tries.
And the 9th best team in the country..
Still yet to drop the first or second set of any match
9th is a good way to get in the door.
It is a good way to get on the map.
But it is not really a big thing with the team.
We just get in the gym and work hard everyday.
Outside hitter Taylor Goar GORE, an all-Northern Sun
first team selection as sophomore despite a nagging
Already owns ten plus kills in six seperate matches
Goar's the leader of an impressive group of juniors..
That walks into one of the toughest conference schedules
of any sport in the country.
It is frusturating to know that every game we have
to step up our game.
No matter how good we play, nothing is good enough.
We know we have to show up every night.
It makes every night meaningful.
Doesn't matter if it is the 16th team or 4th ranked
team -- you better bring your A game.
I think that is why the Northern Sun has had a lot
of success in volleyball.
Joe Getzin's goal for the regular-season:
If that's the case, a second straight 20-win season
is a good bet.
And after falling in the NSIC title game and narrowly
missing out on the school's first NCAA tournament
bid in 20-15.
Just the experience of being there.
At that level and knowing that we are good enough
to play at that level.
That was our taste of it which gives me a lot of confidence
to take the next step and make the tournament.
Reporting in Winona, Charlie Clifford, News 8 Sports.
And it's a tough conference alright -- six Northern
Sun teams right now ranked in the top 10 in the country.
