The U.N.I. volleyball team will be at home next weekend for the opening round of the N.C.C.A. Tournament. The Panthers are 30-2 and received the fifth seed in their region after winning the Missouri Valley tournament in Cedar Falls.
U.N.I. coach Bobbi Peterson says they felt like they did what they needed to do to be the host of the tournament and are happy to get the opportunity to show what they can do. Petterson says she is happy with their five-seed as there were a lot of things that happened that go them into that position.
