Split Volleyball Squads Perform Well in First Spring Tournament
March 25, 2013
RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State's split volleyball teams were both successful over the weekend in the squad's first tournament of the spring, hosted at by the Pack at Reynolds Coliseum.
State's two mix-and-match squads were 6-2 in their sets while competing against East Carolina, Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Campbell and Appalachian State.
Sophomore Tanna Aljoe and freshman Maggie Speaks took their turns at setter for the State squads, with Aljoe posting 75 assists and Speaks registering 70.
"We saw a lot of good things over the course of Saturday," said fourth-year coach Bryan Bunn. "We did a good job on both squads of taking care of the ball and limiting our errors.
"Our defense and blocking need more work. Hopefully with a weekend of competition behind us we can come into training with a higher level of focus and intensity."
The Pack will take next weekend off before playing in three straight tournaments to complete the spring season.
Bunn and his squad finished last season with a 22-10 overall record and a record 12-8 mark in the ACC. The team earned the program's second NCAA Championship appearance, the first since 1988.
