Women's volleyball looking for a 4-Peat

by Robert Crates

    Niagara University women's volleyball players have begun their search for a fourth straight MAAC Championship, led by first-year Head Coach Dottie Porch.
    The squad started its season off hot at the LaSalle Invitational, winning games over both Bucknell and LaSalle.
    The Purple Eagles have already competed in 14 matches, maintaining a record of 6-8.
    Niagara will look to last year's MAAC Tournament's most outstanding player, Kari Honomichl, to right the ship and get the Purple Eagles back to their winning ways.
    Coach Porch will also need the assistance of All-MAAC Second Team player Ellen Senf, and two-time MAAC Setter of the Year Michelle James if Niagara is to vie for the four-peat.
    The team is currently on a three game road trip but will return home on Oct. 13 to compete against MAAC rival Iona.
