The season-ending #20 ranked volleyball team in the country will be honored at tonight’s MBB game. The athletic communications department did a great write up on the Flyer’s season recap at this link: https://daytonflyers.com/news/2024/2...olleyball.aspx This is probably the best I’ve ever seen published for a team’s season recap. They got quotes from all 4 coaches and did a nice job of highlighting the major player’s contributions. Several people have asked me about next year and can we be as good? I believe if healthy, we are even better. I also point out Amelia Moore said at the press co ..read more

So we know we will have Marquette and Western KY on both the 2024 and 2025 the fall schedule for one of the pre-conference weekend tournaments as we entered into a 3-team agreement with each of the 3 teams hosting one year. We will be on the road the next 2 years. Figgie stats year-end rpi was #19 WKY, #20 UD, #23 Marquette. So that should be two Top 25 matches for us this fall. We played at UNI last season - Alayna’s hometown. Their rpi finished at #30. Hopefully that’s a home-home contract and we get them in Dayton in 2024 or 2025. Baylor finished at #27. Senior Alyssa Miller is from the D ..read more

So the roster has been updated for spring. We have 14 players, which is a lot for spring. That means we will have plenty of competition and be able to go hard against teammates and the 2-3 practice guys when they start full practices. I’m not sure when those start, but until then they do a lot of position work. For example, bringing in all the setters and working on a skill. We graduated Amelia, Lindsey and Anna. Mia Otten has also left the program. She was hurt both years she was on the team. That’s always tough. The team returns Lexie (RSSR) and Alayna (RSSR) in their 5th years. Alyssa (SR ..read more

UDPride sent a request to have a travel blog-kind of thing from the team during their trip. So we are just starting to get some stuff in. We thought this would be great from the 2 redshirt freshmen. That's setter Emory Hinkley who hails from Fort Worth, TX and MB India Gnatt from San Antonio, TX. We will also be posting some video they provided later today and more entries as they provide them to us. Enjoy a look into some behind the scenes insight as the team takes in their first weekend of NCAA action. I had heard the NCAA Travel Policy required splitting the team into groups to save on air ..read more

In our quarter of the bracket: Wright State takes a set off #2 seed Louisville for the 2nd time this year. But they fall 1-3. Western MI upsets #7 Auburn in a sweep. They get Louisville next. Other upsets - Hawaii upsets #7 Iowa State 3-1. Miami upsets #8 UNI 3-1. Baylor upsets #7 James Madison in a sweep 3-0. It’s tough being a 7-seed ..read more

A10 All Conference Awards

You would think I could remember this from year to year, but sadly that’s not the case. I BELIEVE the awards are announced the Thursday before the A10 Tourney. That would be today. Flyers will win POY (Lexie), SOY (Alyssa) and COY (Horsmon). Lexie, Amelia, Taylor, Alyssa will be 1st Team. Alayna, Karissa are not guaranteed, but under serious consideration. Gaby deserves a spot on All Rookie Team, but as a DS that’s very hard to do, and there were a lot of Rookies playing key spots like setter and OH this year. As Chris said, you run out of real estate on the lists even though everyone abo ..read more

Job 1 is clear. We have to win-out to be considered to host. After that it gets muddy. We moved up in rpi from 27 on Monday to 20 after the 2 VCU matches. That really puts us back in the hosting picture. But we are going to need more help from the teams still playing we played earlier. Here is the current breakdown using figgiestats rpi. 4 - Louisville - up 1 21 - WKY - up 8 and back in Top 25 24 Marquette - down 1 (UD 1-2 Against Top 25 & our 2 losses are 5 sets) 43 - Northern Iowa up 10 & back in the Top 50 45 - Drake - up 10 & back in the Top 50 (UD 3-2 against Top 50) 56 ..read more

VBall Flyby: Challenge Review System: Sooner Than Later Would be a Very Good Thing: "Our administration and rockstar facility people have assured us in the event we are hosting we will have CRS.” - Tim Horsmon READ MORE: https://www.udpride.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37037 Great job by BeckysTXA inquiring about CRS at Frericks. This was one of my late father's big wish list items for the athletic department and felt it separated the men from the boys or in this case the women from the girls.
