ISLANDERS BACK ON ROAD AS THEY TRAVEL TO UTPA
The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi volleyball team has a quick turnaround this week as they returned home from the Sun Bowl Invitational on Sunday morning and leave on Tuesday to play at Texas-Pan American in Edinburg at 6 PM.
The short period between games gives the Islanders little time to work on specific areas and prepare a game plan to use against the Broncs. Head coach Tony Graystone sees it as simply another challenge in getting better as a team.
"Monday's are about improving over the things we didn't do so well last weekend," said Graystone. "We will watch film, compare notes from each match last weekend and try not to make the same mistakes."
After going 2-1 at the Sun Bowl Invitational, three Islanders garnered individual honors, Jessica Korda and Emma Ridley made the All-Tournament team while Kandyce Nielson was named the Most Valuable Libero at the event.
"We had a few players have some good individual performances," said Graystone. "Our team is designed around Emma and Jessica getting the ball quite a bit and they have done a good job of leading the way offensively for us."
"The team was really happy for them being rewarded like that."
Ridley and Korda will once again look to fill the stat sheet with kills as they look to continue the fast start and try to improve to 3-1 on the young season.
