2023 Outlook: The Green Wave Volleyball team has high expectations for its 2023 campaign. The team is looking to build on its experience from the 2022 postseason and is looking forward to continuing the tradition of the program’s success.

The team will be led by a strong senior group. Serving will again be a strong point for the team and depth, experience and hitting will be advantages for the Green Wave. Finding consistency, especially with passing both on serve/receive and defense will be the key to the outcome of the team’s success.
