The Javelinas have a new sport on campus this semester, Beach volleyball. The team is set to start its inaugural season Mar. 3, by taking on Stevenson here at home on their new courts.
“They built us a great facility. We have six courts and a beautiful layout,” said head coach Tanya Allen.
The Javelinas new facilities will be a key factor in them having success as the Hogs will be the only team on campus to compete at the Division 1 level all season.
“Coming from playing at a D1 school, I feel like I know what to expect and I know it’s not going to be easy,” said Lexi Wick.
The Hogs have been practicing in their new facilities since September, and although they are inexperienced, coach Allen is confident that her team is ready to compete.
“We have an inexperienced, but very physical squad. The more they play, the better we will get. Each time they step on the court, they get a little better and I can’t wait to see them compete.”
When asked if the thought of playing D1 talent every week intimidated anyone Lexi Wick responded, “I’m not too focused on the fact that they are D1, I know we are going to play some big competition and we are doing our best to prepare for everything.”
Javelinas host their first game at home as part of the Newman Hall Invitational against Stevenson University on March 3.
