2009 Volleyball

Season Outlook With the 2009 season set to get underway, the Newberry College volleyball team is prepping to improve on last year’s marks and exceed expectations yet again. The 2009 season will be Newberry’s second season with head coach David Nicholson at the helm. In Nicholson’s first season, he was able to lead the team to an impressive 18-13 record overall, despite losing three of the team’s top starters from the year before. The team finished 8-8 in conference play and placed fifth in the South Atlantic Conference. “Our goal is to continue to grow as a team and improve on last year’s results,” Nicholson stated. “We want to continue to hone our strengths as well as work a little harder on some of our weaknesses.” Nicholson and his team have high hopes of topping last season’s results. “The players and I are getting increasingly comfortable with each other having been together for a year,” said Nicholson. “I am learning more and more about them and they are learning more and more about me. I’m getting a better idea of what their strengths are and how to play to them,” he concluded. The scarlet and gray will have to work hard to fill the void left by outside hitter Priscila Sales. Sales set Newberry’s single season record in 2008 with 418 kills. “I’m not going to focus on individuals,” Nicholson said. “We’re going to work together as a team and get contributions from everyone.”

Rising senior Lorena Maia looks to lead the team in 2009 and continue to build on the success that the team has seen since her arrival. The outside hitter from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, led the 2008 team in service aces and blocks and was second on team in points and kills.

The team will also enjoy the return of Fernanda Frey, a team leader in 2007 who did not see action in 2008 due to injury. Despite being unable to compete, Frey stood by the team as an assistant coach during the 2008 campaign. Though her contributions were great, her teammates eagerly await her participation on the court.

The home opener will be on September 25 against Mars Hill. Senior Night will be held on November 6 as Newberry plays host to North Greenville. The team will look to give the home-town fans even more to cheer about in the 2009 campaign. “We’ve always had a big advantage when we play at home,” Nicholson claimed. “Our fans are great. Coaches tell me they don’t like coming here because of the loud crowds. It’s a tough place to play.”
