Aug. 23, 2007
CINCINNATI - The Xavier volleyball team is set to open its 2007 campaign this weekend at the seventh-annual Rocket Volleyball Classic hosted by the University of Toledo. The Musketeers will face Bradley, Cleveland State, IUPUI and host Toledo in the five-team tournament on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 24-25.
The Musketeers open practice just over two weeks ago, welcoming seven returning players as well as six incoming freshmen. A year ago, XU made their ninth consecutive Atlantic 10 Tournament appearance and return all but two starters from that squad, including team-leading blocker senior Jill Quayle and junior setter Jenn Welsh.
Xavier was picked to finished third in the A-10 West in voting by league coaches as announced on Tuesday, August 21. XU completed the 2006 campaign with an 18-12 overall record and a 10-3 conference mark.
