The Grinnell College volleyball team looks for bigger and better things in 2008. After winning just five matches last year, coach Tom Sonnichson has one of the bigger squads he’s had in his 12 years at the helm. He says the teams that have done well have had 15 or 16 players, and they have a little more than that. Sonnichson says getting everyone enough playing time could pose a problem.
There are no seniors on this years team, one that prepared itself well for the season ahead. Sonnichson says the team came back in very good shape, and no one was injured, which allowed them to accelerate things in practice.
The 2008 season begins this weekend at Dominican University in Chicago.
