Women’s volleyball team looking to next year, everyone else just looking

I don’t want this to appear to be a “dig” on the Terp women’s volleyball team, but despite being “set” up for a potentially bright future, the team hasn’t yet “netted” a “spike” in the win column. Shazam.

Sophomore Michelle
Kenning is ready.

Okay, but seriously now. Women’s volleyball is no laughing matter. It’s not. Just a few days ago the team fell to 1-5 on the year after a tough loss to national powerhoue St. John’s. To preemptively answer your question, yes, we still have Maggie Schmelzle, who recently took sole possession of fourth place on the school’s all-time Digs list. But sometimes, having Maggie Schmelzle is not enough, as I’m sure even Maggie Schmelzle would tell you.

with her powerful haunches.

Only four returning players plus a new coaching staff means it’s safe to say they’re rebuilding right now. Freshwomen Lisa Scott and Maddi Lee are particularly promising.

Excitingly, the team has its own blog as well, and it’s actually pretty good, although it sometimes seems to be more a diary of the team’s information director than a chronicle of the team itself. For example, did you know that volleyball statistics are among the most difficult to compile? I wonder how your next cocktail party will react to that

So as you can see, despite its slow start there are plenty of reasons to get excited over this team.  So let’s go ladies!  We hope to be checking you out in person very soon.

    With a name like Schmelzle it has to be good.
