New coach Dahl gets her 1st win as ISU coach as ISU beats Lipscomb (picked 2nd in the Atlantic Sun) in the afternoon match 3-2, in the morning the ISU women lost 3-1 to Morehead State (picked 1st in the OVC).
ISU now 1-1 with a match vs. Western Illinois on Saturday.
I'm encouraged by the performances yesterday at Morehead. Lipscomb won the 2007 Athlantic Sun Conference tournament and was an automastic qualifier for the NCAA tournament, where it lost to Dayton at Dayton in the first round. Morehead State, the host school, is favored to win the Ohio Valley Conference.
VB won again today against Western Illinois (picked 4th preseason in the Mid-Con). So now they're 2-1 on the season. Just think, 1 more win and they equal their win total from all of last season. This new coach seems to be doing pretty well so far.
Odd, they travel to Louisville for a match w/ the Cardinals at 7pm now.
VB loses to Louisville tonight 3-0 (25-10, 25-19, 25-19). Louisville was ranked 31st in the country and picked to win the Big East in 2008, so after the trip over from Morehead ISU didn't do too bad. They were competitive against a very good team. Long day I would assume.
