Mavs disappoint in home finale

The UNO volleyball team played its final competitive home match of the season Tuesday night, losing in straight sets to South Dakota.  Before the match, the Mavs honored the personal and athletic achievements of their three seniors- Brittany Hanssen, Emily Myers and Angie Reicks.

That's where the good feelings ended.

Finding peak performance

Place a plank on the floor and walk across it.  Not too difficult, right?  Now grab two six-foot ladders and place the plank across the tops of both ladders. Try walking across the plank this time.


Sorensen Shines in Denver

The UNO volleyball team traveled to Denver for the Colorado Premier Challenge last weekend, earning their second win of the season but dropping three others to go 2-10 on the year.  The Mavs' lone victory came in a 3-2 set win in Friday's 3:30 p.m. match against Cal Baptist.


Still searching for consistency

The UNO volleyball team played four matches in last weekend's UNO Showcase tournament, only managing one win over two days.  For a team that normally begins each season on a roll, the Mavs are in a very unfamiliar position.
