Current squad issues good-natured beating

If motivation comes after action, then the Seawolf volleyball team should be motivated now. Freshman players got a taste of their first competition in their second- annual scrimmage against the Seawolf alumni on Aug. 22. In past years, the team only scrimmaged among themselves before the first game of the season. But by having actual opponents, the preparations seem much more real.

“It was just the alumni, but like I said, it’s new faces on the other side of the net. So that’s nice,” Assistant Coach Nicky Rose said.

It’s part of a tradition that keeps freshman players motivated. Seawolf players have won against their predecessors in all five games so far.

UAA volleyball will hold this event again next year as a part of welcome week for the same admission price: free.
