On Friday and Saturday, Sept. 12 and 13, the University of Akron women’s volleyball team will play two matches in Lincoln, Nebraska, the state which senior Mary Delich calls home. Delich serves as the only senior on this seasons Zips roster, playing the previous three seasons on the team as well. Because she comes from a state farther away, the team made accommodations to head to Nebraska so Delich’s family will have the opportunity to come see her play.

While in Nebraska, Akron will face both Colgate University and The University of Denver. At the beginning of the week, Akron enters with a record of 5-3. The University of Denver comes into Monday at 5-1, and Colgate currently has a record of 2-2.

Going into the weekend, Akron needs to keep an eye out for Colgate senior Diane Seely. This past weekend, Seely received the honors of being named to the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia West Invitational All-Tournament Team after finishing the weekend with nineteen kills and thirteen blocks.
