PHILIPPI, W.Va. -- The Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) preseason coaches’ poll, released by the conference office Thursday afternoon, predicted that the Alderson Broaddus women’s volleyball team will finish third in conference play.
“I was a little surprised at the rankings when they came out, as to where we were, but that is fine,” explained Head Coach Carrie Bodkins. “We will certainly play to our potential and get where we want to be which is the No. 1 spot.”
Conference coaches tabbed the Battlers as the third best team in the G-MAC despite a 3-0 (25-22, 25-20, 32-30) victory over preseason favorite Cedarville University last season. AB went 3-0 against current G-MAC members in 2012, and swept all three opponents in straight sets.
The Battlers return a loaded lineup featuring a pair of All-Conference returners headlined by senior libero Jillian Brown (Reynoldsburg, Ohio) and sophomore outside hitter Caitlin Cain (Ashville, Ohio). AB’s 2013 roster features 10 upperclassmen and several impact freshmen and sophomores.
AB reached the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament last season before losing to the University of Charleston in the Quarterfinal Round.
The Battlers open the 2013 campaign at the University of Illinois-Springfield Tournament Feb. 6-7 and face G-MAC opponent Kentucky Wesleyan University in their first match of the season.
