Bearcats ready for the MIAA

Wednesday marks the first MIAA Conference game for the Bearcat Volleyball team.  We play at Emporia State University on September 14 at 7 pm, and we are definitely ready to show the Hornets that we are not a team to be taken lightly.

We have displayed some promising talent through our preseason tournaments at University of Nebraska Omaha and Southwest Baptist University.  Our record is currently 3-5, but I do not believe that is a true representation of how well we have played.  Yes, some matches were better than others, but that just means that we have room for improvement.  We have lost some close matches to some talented teams, but we have grown and learned from each of those losses.  Currently, we are trying to find our team identity and really discover what our team is capable of this season.

This Friday we are having a Green and White Scrimmage at Bearcat Arena at 7 pm that you won’t want to miss!  Fans will have a chance to see the girls in an intense scrimmage, meet the players, learn the rules of the game, and participate in some fun activities as well.

Our home opener is against No. 4 Washburn on Tuesday, September 20 at 7 pm.  Last year’s match-up with Washburn (ranked No. 2 at the time) resulted in an exciting 5 game win.   We hope to see a big crowd and defend our home court!
