Aug. 17, 2006
GREELEY, Colo. - The University of Northern Colorado women's volleyball team will hold its intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday night at 6 p.m. on the Campus Recreation Center on the Northern Colorado campus. The event is free and open to the public.
The event will be the first true scrimmage for the team since they began practice on Aug. 8. They will open the season the following Friday (Aug. 25) at the University of Arizona Tournament. At that event the team will face off with San Francisco, Siena and host Arizona, who is ranked 18th nationally in the preseason poll.
On Saturday, the two teams will split into Blue and White teams and play five sets, no matter how many sets each squad wins.
The event is being held at the Campus Recreation Center due to the finishing of renovations at Butler-Hancock Sports Pavilion. The Bears have been practicing at the Rec Center since the beginning of camp and are expected to be back in Butler-Hancock near the end of September.
**Note: Some players will switch from team-to-team during different sets.
