UT Volleyball 2017
VBall season starts this Friday the 18th with an exhibition match against Oakland at Savage. OOC schedule starts on the 25th, playing at a tournament at Fort Wayne.

Unfortunately, looking at the roster, Gracie Tuifua is no longer on the team. Some searching finds that she has transferred to Weber State - she's from Utah so hopefully that's just cause she wanted to be closer to home.

Gracie was a huge contributor her 1st 2 seasons, as the #2 outside hitter. That leaves a big hole to fill, so some younger player is gonna have to step up.

Oh the bright side, we won't have to hear Balbinot mispronounce her name 6 different ways every game.

Also, it appears the Rockets lost 2 players to transfers in the off-season. In addition to Tuifua, Machayla Leonard has transferred to Illinois State, which is in her home town of Normal, IL.
