Volleyball needs student support

Letter to the Editor | Wednesday, November 7, 2007

Dear Students,

This weekend the volleyball team closes out the regular season at the Joyce Center with two very important Big East matches. Friday, before the pep rally, we play Cincinnati at 4 p.m. Please come out early to the pep rally, receive a free T-shirt, and warm up your vocal cords. Cincinnati is 8-4 in the Big East and 17-9 overall. One of our sophomores, Megan Fesl, has a sister who plays for Cincinnati so this match is an important one for our team.

On Sunday at 2 p.m. we battle No. 17 Louisville, which is undefeated in Big East play at 12-0 and 19-4 overall. This is a huge match, as it will air live to a national audience on ESPN U, so bring your friends and be seen on TV. At the Louisville match, one lucky student will win free books for a semester from Hammes Bookstore.

Finally, Sunday is also Senior Day. This will be your last chance to watch our outstanding pair of seniors, Ashley Tarutis and Adrianna Stasiuk, as they take the floor for the final time at the Joyce Center. With wins in the final two matches, we will earn a 13th consecutive berth in the Big East tournament. The team would love to hear our great student body make some noise and cheer us on to victory. GO IRISH!
