Redhawks volleyball finally comes home

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - The Southeast Missouri State University women’s volleyball team is off to a slow start this season with a 4-10 record. But a strong start to conference play provides hope for a winning season.

The women’s volleyball team opened their season with a thirteen game road trip, finally playing at home on Tuesday night.

The Redhawks came into the game against conference rival Murray State with a 1-1 conference record.

Despite the slow start, Coach Julie Folliard says different players took the lead each game.

"I think Emily Coon’s doing a great job in the middle, she’s coming alive now. She was picked for the preseason All-OVC team," Folliard said. "Our seniors have really done a great job. Paige Dossey’s played great defensively and Holly Reynolds had a great night last night with her blocking. So I think they’re doing a great job leading us."

Folliard said sophomore Julie Shives had a great night on Tuesday, recording a rare triple-double, with 10 digs, 10 kills and 46 set assists in the 5 set win for the Redhawks.

The Redhawks host Jacksonville State,1-1 in conference, Friday night at 6:30 in Houck Fieldhouse.
