FORT MYERS, Fla. - FGCU women’s volleyball team will hold a Green & Blue inter-squad scrimmage on Friday, Aug. 19 at 6 p.m. The scrimmage will take place at Alico Arena and is free to the public.
“This preseason has been a great blend of old and new,” said head coach Dave Nichols. “With the return of Jelena Simic, the continued solid play of veteran libero Holly Youngquist and the addition of so many new players who will have an impact on our season, we are looking forward to showcasing what this talented group can do. I think our fans will really be happy with the size and depth of the 2011 FGCU volleyball team.”
The Eagles have been hard at work since opening their preseason camp on Aug. 10. FGCU opens its 2011 campaign at the NCCU Tournament hosted by North Carolina Central on Aug. 26-27. The Green and Blue will face Elon, former A-Sun foe Campbell and the host NCCU Eagles.
The following weekend, the Eagles open their home slate with the second annual FGCU Homewood Suites Volleyball Invitational from September 2-3. No. 2 USC, UCF and Furman head to the City of Palms for the two-day tournament.
