Men’s volleyball opens practice

October 26th, 2011

Have the day off and have begun vacation. Stephen’s the beat writer for MVB. Here is an item from his blog today.

Per the above link: The Warrior volleyball team opens fall camp today with a two-hour practice this afternoon. While the Warriors must replace the big three — Jonas Umlauft, Joshua Walker and Nejc Zemljak — the replacement candidates are skilled six-rotation players. Translation: They are accurate passes and active blockers. There might be fewer spectacular kills, but steadier passing and defense.

In team testing, J.P. Marks, a 6-foot-5 outside hitter from Germany, had a 40-inch vertical jump and touched 11-7.

The men’s volleyball roster is and has been incomplete since been updated.  Click on the following link:
None of the following highly touted recruits are listed:

Jan-Philipp Marks, 6-5, OH, Germany’s Junior National Team (enrolled in 2nd SS)
Taylor Averill, 6-7, S/OH/MB, RsFr from UC Irvine
Brook Sedore, 6-5, OH Grand Prairie Composite HS, Alberta, Canada
J.J. Mosolf, 6-6, Opposite, Hart High School, Valencia, California
Johann Timmer, 6-6, MB/Opposite, New Zealand National Team

Mosolf and Gus Tuaniga are slated to join the team in spring.
