Warriors to play doubleheader tonight in the Thunderdome

The Union College varsity woman’s volleyball season is well underway, and at the midway point, the Warriors have played to a record of two wins and five losses.

Last week the Union College women took on Concordia University JV and Faith Baptists College. “The game against Concordia was a tough one,” explained Gary Obreque, team manager, explained of the 0-3 loss. “The outside hitters were doing great but unfortunately we weren’t able to keep up with them.”

Against Faith Bible College, the Warriors won the first two sets with ease. “The first two matches were combined with perfect passing, communication and attacks,” said Obreque. But Faith eventually pulled out the match in five sets.

The eleven women on the team are coached by Ric Spaulding, Union’s athletic director, and assisted by Ron Stump. Gary Obreque serves as team manager assisted by Christopher Fairchild.

Tonight the Warriors will play a doubleheader in the Thunderdome, facing Manhattan Christian College at 4:00 and then Central Christian College at 8:00. Both games will be webcast on UClive.
