With the fall sports season approaching in just a few short months, the Texas State women’s volleyball team is preparing with hopes of practicing daily, winning matches and setting new records.
The Bobcats finished their 2015 season with an overall record of 19-12 and a conference record of 13-3.
Texas State won a total of 64 sets with a season total of 2442 points by set.
Last season’s team was dominated by juniors, so the Bobcats only lost two seniors. The 2016 team will be welcoming six freshmen.
This upcoming season, Texas State is scheduled to play 24 times—10 being home matches.
While fall semester classes begin August 29, the volleyball team will have its first tournament the 26th and 27th against North Texas, in Denton.
Texas State will play the next three matches at home against Baylor and Sam Houston. In addition, the Bobcats will host the Texas State Invitational.
In September, there won’t be many home games fans can attend, as the Bobcats will be on the road most of the time.
Texas State will travel to Portland, Oregon, Sept. 9 and end up in Mobile, Alabama.
In between those two matches, the Bobcats will take on the Islanders, the Roadrunners and the Trojans.
Texas State will be back at home Sept. 30 to compete against Coastal Carolina. During the next three home matches, the Bobcats will take on Appalachian State, Arkansas State and Little Rock.
There will be three away games on Oct. 13, 21 and 22 against the University of Texas-Arlington, Georgia State and Georgia Southern. All three of these matches will be for conference play.
The next three matches will be at home until the end of October.
Starting November 4th, the Bobcats will finish out their season with four away matches against Little Rock, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Monroe and Louisiana-Lafayette.
The season will close Nov. 18 with the Sun Belt Championship Tournament, held in Arlington, Texas.
The Bobcats have a busy season ahead, and are looking forward to the journey each match will take them on. A new season means a new team and new opportunities.
