Links Available For Weekend Volleyball Tournament At St. Kate's

VB celebration

Like the adage of getting back on your bicycle after you have fallen off, the Hamline volleyball team looks to shake off a 3-0 loss to Concordia Wednesday when they travel to St. Catherine's for a tournament this weekend. The Pipers will play two matches each day. On Friday, the Pipers will play back-to-back matches, facing Luther (5-4) at 5:00 p.m. and coming back to battle Bethany Lutheran (1-8) at 7:00 p.m. The next day, HU will see two teams they saw last weekend in their own tournament. At 10:00 a.m., HU tangles with Crown (2-5). After a quick respite, it's a 2:00 p.m. rematch with Wis-Stout (4-5). Last weekend, these two teams staged a memorable five game battle with Hu winning the deciding game, 15-5, to claim a 3-2 margin for the match.

Although there will be no live stats for Hamline's matches in this tournament, there is a website that will place boxscores up as they become available. To access the site, click here.

Hamline will take an 8-1 won-loss record into the tournament. The win total is just one shy of the team total for the entire 2011 season.
