Orangeburg, SC--After the first full week of practice, things are looking up for the South Carolina State women’s volleyball team, who finished with a 12-20 overall record and 2-8 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference while missing the conference tournament. The first week of practice showed promise for the Lady Bulldogs who has no where to go but up.
“I see progress in the team, they are really working hard but we still have lots of work do,” says first-year head coach Millicent Sylvan. “There is improved team unity and cohesiveness across the board and if we continue in this direction it will definitely lead to team chemistry on the court which will lead to success throughout the season.”
Sylvan didn’t mention any names, but noted that there were “three or four players who show consistency, dependability, and effort no matter how tired or what state they are in.”
Sylvan also noted that there were some players who are still trying to find their place on the team and that no matter what, she believes that everyone to can contribute to the success.
The team, which will play a 29 match schedule this regular season, opens the 2007 campaign the weekend of August 24-25 at the North Carolina Central Tournament in Durham, NC.
