Previous Result: N/A
Match Report: Volleyball wc 02/10/2017
It’s a new season for BU Volleyball teams beginning with our first fixtures this Wednesday. Both squads have seen the addition of a number of American recruits, who have already boosted the overall level of training in the first weeks of practice. Both teams have been training hard and are looking forward to competing. This season both teams are hoping to bring home student cup titles and qualify for BUCS Finals, but there’s work to be done in the league first, starting with our game against Essex!
Last year saw both teams fall to Essex on multiple occasions, which we are determined to reverse this year around! Adjusting to new squads and systems will be key factors of both games.
On the women’s side, outside hitter Taylor Treacy will be one to watch, who joins BU after finishing her first pro-season last year in Finland. Captain Brenna Wagner will also be looking to bring her experience into this new team after her successful collegiate career at the University of Utah. The defensive work of Libero Rachel Waters will also be something to keep an eye out for.
For the men, returning captain Minos Agathacleous and outside hitter Harry Jones, as well as new recruit Ross Bricklemiar will be looking to lead the team forward with experience from last season; the middle works of new recruit Elliott Alison and club-president Luca Valtteri will also be a key factor.
Both teas are looking forward to competing and building through this season to reach our end goals! We hope to see as many supporters there as possible to cheer on TeamBU.
