Volleyball team has strong opening with first-year coach

(09/19/16 4:00am)

In just a mere three weeks, Dartmouth’s women’s volleyball team (6-4) has already accumulated half as many wins as it did last season (12-11). The Big Green closed out five of their six wins thus far in straight sets, already beating their 2015 record of sweeping only two games. With such a promising start and 15 matches left in this season, the team is currently on par with a promising trajectory. The question thus remains: why is the women’s volleyball season finding success so early on in this season compared to last year’s?

He has been to the final at every single Grand Slam: Wimbledon, Roland Garros, US Open and Australian Open. He has given every concession speech there is to give.
