Toledo Volleyball Opens 2019 Season with Pair of Saturday Practices

By  | 

The University of Toledo volleyball team officially opened its season on Saturday, holding two practices to begin the 2019 campaign.

"We had a good first day of practice, it was great to be back out on the court," head coach Jason Oliver said. "We obviously still have a long way to go, but today was a good start to what we're all hoping is a successful season."

The Rockets will host Indianapolis on Saturday, Aug. 24 in an exhibition match at 3:00 p.m., with the regular season beginning the following weekend. Toledo hosts the Blue and Gold Tournament on Aug. 30-31, welcoming North Dakota State, Western Kentucky, and Loyola-Chicago to Savage Arena for a weekend of volleyball.

Toledo returns seven letterwinners from 2018, including second-team All-MAC honoree Zoe Birnbrich.
