At the end of practice on Aug. 26, the LMU volleyball team circled up. Much of the discussion was typical post-practice talk, such as strategy from coaches and logistics for an upcoming road trip. But the players also did something unusual — they wrote journal entries in notebooks.
In the 2018 season, the LMU volleyball team made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2015, reaching the second round in the process. As the 2019 season begins, the team wants to not only replicate that result but to improve upon it as well.
The women of LMU’s club volleyball team won one of the National Club Volleyball Federation’s (NCVF) national tournaments in Denver, Colo. on April 20. The Lions competed in the Division IAAA bracket of the competition, posting an undefeated record of 9 and 0 on their way to gold.
