FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – The women’s volleyball team will begin its preparation for the 2010 fall season with four scheduled play dates over the next month. The 2010 Lumberjacks lose just one senior and will return eight players who appeared in at least 20 of the 25 matches played in 2009.
The women will play on four consecutive weekends beginning on March 27th at Arizona and ending with their annual Alumni Game on April 17.
In Tucson, NAU will play five matches in a field of 11 teams from across the southwest. The Lumberjacks play matches against UTEP, Wichita State, New Mexico, Yavapai College, and Grand Canyon University. Wichita State and New Mexico earned postseason berths advancing to the NCAA Tournament last fall.
NAU will also play a tournament at New Mexico on April 3 and play Yavapai College the following weekend on April 10 before closing the spring season with the Alumni Game on April 17.
