An ode to Cougar volleyball

What other sports could potentially follow after the domino of football?

Good morning, Coug fans! It’s been a full week already, hasn’t it?

The prospect of football has returned once again. And while that does make me excited, I have to think about the prospect of volleyball returning as well. Which would be very exciting.

It’s no secret we had a killer team last season, and while games are played inside- I would like to vote playing volleyball as soon as it’s safe. This video of them practicing gave me endless joy.

With the team made up mostly of underclassmen, it’s not life or death in terms of losing seniors with eligibility, which is good. However, I’m pointing out that I would like to see volleyball dominate just as much as I would like to see football do... whatever football does best.

Volleyball has two 6’5” players- a sophomore opposite Alexcis Lusby, and freshman outside hitter Julianna Dalton.

Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself, but the prospect of football has me dreaming that one day we’ll see Cougar volleyball, and hopefully even Cougar soccer, again. There are obviously several factors that would go into organizing that, and keeping everyone as safe as possible, but it’s worth hoping for.

I hope everyone is staying safe, staying inside, and staying hydrated.
