Volleyball team starts practice - looking to be better than above average
When I interviewed Terah Brown and Cammie Petree (head coach) yesterday as the team started volleyball practice for the 2010 season, both were okay with their second-place vote in the 2010 ASC West Preseason poll. However, both echoed that they wanted more. Brown, a fourth-year player for McMurry is already the all-time leader in blocks at the school and has a chance to move up in the top five in career kills as well. She along with Mandie Moore and Sarah Anding are fourth-year seniors that have made the ASC Tournament in each of their seasons. As freshmen in 2007, they exited in the semi-finals round with a lost to HSU. In 2008, the team exited in the quarterfinals round with a loss to ETBU. Last season as juniors, they fell in the semi-finals round again to HSU. To set themselves up for success, Brown said in the YouTube interview above, that the team would be well off if it could finish first-place in the west during the regular season to give them a better shot at their goal: A conference title.
