Volleyball Opens Season Strong

The ladies of the Michigan volleyball team returned from the ASICS Rainbow Wahine Invitational in Honolulu, Hawaii with more than just a tan. Sunday they defeated Colorado State to claim the tournament title, winning all three of their matches, including an upset of #10 Hawaii on the Rainbow Wahine's home court. Michigan defeated Hawaii 3-2 on Friday before dispatching Oregon State 3-0 on Saturday and wrapping up the tournament crown with a 3-1 win over Colorado State on Sunday. Now, I am not the resident volleyball expert at WCBN, but beating any team on their home court is impressive (especially when Hawaii draws 7,343 fans to the game), and combining an upset of a top ten team with a tournament title should give the volleyball team a boatload of confidence going into their next match (a little closer to home, the Wolverines take on Miami Ohio in Oxford to open the Miami University Invitational).
