NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Belmont University Volleyball enters the Curb Event Center for the first time this season on Sunday with a heavy hitting opponent on deck. The Bruins (0-3) welcome first-time foe Iowa (1-1) for its home opener.
The Hawkeyes have split to open the season with a pair of extended set matches at the LUV Invitational, hosted by Lipscomb. Iowa needed a fourth set to hold back SMU, 3-2, but fell to the host-Bisons, 3-2, in a tough battle. For their efforts, Taylor Louis and Reghan Coyle were named to the All-Tournament team.
BU is fresh off the two-day Tennessee Classic in Knoxville, packed with valuable lessons for the roster dominated by freshmen and sophomores. Sophomore Halee Van Poppel (Argyle, Texas) was named to the All-Tournament Team for her efforts. Senior Maggie Mullins (Nashville, Tenn.) led BU with 24 kills over the three matches while Carly Mason (Forsyth, Ill.) collected 60 assists in her collegiate debut weekend.
