BGSU VOLLEYBALL IS RALLYING AROUND A YOUTHFUL SQUAD THIS SEASON
The Bowling Green State University volleyball team, led by Coach Danijela Tomic in her sixth year at the helm of the program, is eight games into the season. Tomic returns assistant coach Alex DelPiombo for a second season, while Alison Cooke joins the program for her first season as an assistant coach for the Falcons. Evan Antal begins his second season as the director of operations.
They welcome back 11 players from last season’s successful season, which includes just one senior on the 15-member roster. Joining senior outside hitter Nicole Slimko on the court this season will be four juniors, six sophomores and four freshmen. BGSU is 3-5 overall, including a 2-3 record at home, as the Falcons head to Richmond, Virginia, to play in the Virginia Commonwealth University Invitational. BGSU will play VCU at 7 p.m. Friday (Sept. 15), Northwestern University at 10:30 a.m. Saturday (Sept. 16) and Seton Hall University at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
