BHSU volleyball competes at SDSU
The Black Hills State University volleyball team got in on some live action as they competed in the 2013 SDSU Spring Tournament at Frost Arena last weekend.
“Our ladies took advantage of the opportunity to play great competition this past weekend. We welcomed the challenge of facing off against a Division I school as well as nationally ranked Division II schools this Spring,” BHSU head coach Sally Nichols said.
Other teams that made the trip for the scrimmage included Augustana, Crookston and Northern State among others.
Defense had been an emphasize throughout their spring practices for the Yellow Jackets and Nichols was pleased with what she saw last Saturday.
“We were excited to see if the changes we made to our defense would pay off and they did,” Nichols said. “Our highlight from Saturday's scrimmage was our defense. We are really starting to play disciplined and anticipate out of our basic defensive set. Our ladies have worked hard all spring and it was exciting to see them buy into change and it pay off."
