Saints volleyball looks forward to beginning season on Aug. 23


The volleyball team played a scrimmage at Trinity University on Saturday. The Saints will play their first regular season game on Friday against Schreiner University.

The volleyball team, led by Head Coach Mark Lee, is getting ready for another competitive year as preseason is set to start on Aug. 23. The Saints will host NCAA Division II St. Mary’s University for a scrimmage. The Saints finished the 2012 season in fourth place in the Red River Athletic Conference and suffered a tough loss in the conference tournament quarterfinals against Texas Wesleyan University. The Saints fought hard, but lost 3-1 (25-21, 20-25, 25-20, 27-25). According to Lee, last year’s team was a very young team that had a season filled with close games that resulted in a lot of tough losses. He hopes that his returning players learned a lot from previous mistakes and will be able to turn tight games into victories this year. “I feel confident that the players returning to the team will come back with their heads in the right place,” Lee explained.
