The UNI volleyball team is preparing for its second tournament in as many weeks. The Panthers opened last week with a 2-1 mark by taking on host St. Louis University, Alabama and Southeast Missouri State.

UNI coach Bobbi Peterson they faced a variety of different approaches in the tournament and that gave them a lot of experience. This week the Panthers travel to a tournament at Kentucky and USC and Creighton are also part of the field. “We schedule tough, and we’ve been doing that for a lot of years, and I think out of all the years that I’ve been here this is probably the toughest tournament we’ll be a part of, ” Peterson says.
