Ranked opponents

No. 11 Cal Lutheran will be the third Logger opponent nationally ranked by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) this season. During last week's Puget Sound Premiere, the Loggers lost to both No. 16 Millikin, 3-1, and No. 22 Pacific Lutheran, 3-0.

 

Early honors

Sophomore Alli Reviglio and freshman Sarah Blumenfeld were both named to the All-Puget Sound Premiere Team, as voted on by the five participating head coaches.

 

Young squad

The Loggers have 18 freshmen and sophomore on the team, and head coach Mark Massey was not shy to put them to the test. Often times during the Puget Sound Premiere, the Loggers had a lineup of four freshmen and two sophomores.
