MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The West Virginia volleyball team posted a 2-0 record at the 2014 WVU Spring Fling on Saturday at the WVU Coliseum.
“I thought there were some things that we needed to continue to work on this weekend, and we were able to accomplish just that,” says coach Jill Kramer. “We wanted to play the best of five format because that is what we will be facing in the fall. It allowed us to get used to making adjustments and being more disciplined.”
The Mountaineers began the day with a 3-1 win over Duquesne. The Dukes handed West Virginia its first loss of the season a year ago, before going on to win the Atlantic 10 Conference and earning an automatic bid in the NCAA tournament.
WVU ended the day with a 3-1 win over Youngstown State. The Penguins and the Mountaineers haven’t met in the regular season since 2010.
“We need to be more focused from the first whistle,” Kramer says. “We continued to shuffle the lineups, which is what we wanted to do. We did a good job of adjusting to that as a unit, however, we need to be sure we are focused and locked in from the first serve.
“Overall, it was great to continue to see areas we need to improve going into our last weekend of competition this spring.”
West Virginia concludes its spring season next weekend at the George Washington University Spring Tournament in Washington, D.C.
