After four straight weekends on the road, volleyball opens up its Mid-American Conference schedule this weekend at home against Toledo and Ball State. The Chippewas (6-6) come into the contests on a high note after winning four out their last six matches to finish the non-conference season. “It’s been so long, I can’t even remember what it is to feel like being at home," said head coach Erik Olson.

Volleyball blew out Jackson State last weekend to get the team up to .500 (6-6) on the season, but the match helped out more than boosting its record. Senior setter Kelly Maxwell and junior outside hitter Kaitlyn McIntyre, the team leaders in assists and kills, both had a set off Friday, leaving younger players to take over leadership roles. “I definitely had to step up since (McIntyre) wasn’t there,” said freshman outside hitter Melissa Fuchs.

Volleyball sweeps South Carolina Upstate to start Hofstra Tournament

(09/14/13 10:19am)

Volleyball won a match in fewer than five sets for the first time Friday by sweeping USC-Upstate on Friday, 3-0. Junior outside hitter Kaitlyn McIntyre dominated the stat sheet, totaling 18 kills and only two errors. Central Michigan and USC-Upstate seemed to be even through the most of the match, but CMU was able to take control late in each set to finish off the Spartans. The Chippewas finished the first set (28-26) on a 10-3 run and both the second (25-21) and third (25-21) sets on an 11-7 run. Finishing off sets was a priority for head coach Erik Olson during practice this week after the team lost four of its eight sets last weekend by two points. Sophomore middle blocker Angie White helped end the first and third sets with a kill.
