Saint Mary’s volleyball on HBC this fall
The Saint Mary’s volleyball team return all but two players from a team which finished 20-13 a year ago, and five of its matches will be featured on HBC.
The Cardinals claimed nine of their 11 home contests last season, and with only Molly Grover and Mary Nordick lost to graduation, have serious talent coming back for 2o15.
Seven of Mike Lester’s top nine attackers are back in the fold, led by Macki Fadness’ 621 total attacks, the top seven setters are back with Brittney Hanson paving the way with 5.68 assists per set, Molly Urban leads a group of blockers with 76 and six of the eight top players for kills shall be back on the floor with Fadness once again setting the pace with 2.53 kills per set.
SMU’s defense should be sound as well, with the top nine diggers coming back, led by Lex Krogstad who delivered 4.88 per set.
The Cardinals’ first matches will come during the Ground Round Sugar Loaf Classic against Wisconsin-Stevens Point and Luther College on September 5 only on TV 25.
