UNO Volleyball and Head Coach Rose Shires started 2010 with an 8-1 record using a mix of new players ready to contribute and reliable veterans who had become established as some of the best in the MIAA.
The UNO volleyball team began gearing up for a new season with the first of four red/black scrimmages last Saturday. The team also welcomed alumni for their annual matchup with former Maverick players.
The UNO women's volleyball team came back from two Friday losses with a pair of wins Saturday, doubling their win total to four on the season. The Mavs bounced back from two four-set losses with a five-set win and a sweep in their final match.
The schedule maker didn't do UNO any favors in the Mavs' opening weekend of Summit League play. South Dakota State and North Dakota State, two teams picked to finish in the top three of the conference, came to Omaha on back-to-back nights.
