Lady Bisons open fall camp to prepare for 2011 campaign

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

The first step in defending the nation’s longest conference winning streak (35 games) and back-to-back Atlantic Sun crowns begins today, as Lipscomb volleyball opens camp today preparing for the 2011 season that begins on Aug. 26th.

Coach Brandon Rosenthal’s squad opens camp with a balance of newcomers and returnees this fall. Among the newcomers are five freshmen and one transfer, who are each expected to make an immediate impact on the program.

“I was really, really impressed with not only all of our freshmen but also Abby (Fay), who we’re calling our ‘super senior’,” noted Rosenthal. “It was very competitive and very spirited throughout the practice. I think there’s a level of expectation or professionalism with this program. We don’t have to say a whole lot any more. They know what they have to do.”

The Lady Bisons open the home schedule on Sept. 2nd in the Lipscomb Invitational at Allen Arena taking on Tennessee Tech and Charlotte at 12:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively.
