Volleyball to host trio of WIAC matches this week

After three non-conference sweeps last week, the UW-Superior women’s vol­ley­ball team will play host to three WIAC oppo­nents this week at Mertz Morterelli Gym­na­sium in the Mar­covich Well­ness Cen­ter begin­ning on Wednes­day. The Yel­low­jack­ets will look to ride a three game win­ning streak into this week.

The Yel­low­jack­ets swept Fin­lan­dia, Lake­head and Crown last week con­vinc­ingly in straight sets and improve to 13–5 overall.

On Wednes­day the Yel­low­jack­ets will host UW-Stout at 7 p.m. Both UW-Superior and UW-Stout are win­less in WIAC play being 0–3 and 0–1 respec­tively. Stout is 12–5 over­all. Last sea­son the Jack­ets lost three sets to one to the Blue Devils.

On Fri­day, the Yel­low­jack­ets will play host to UW-LaCrosse at 7 p.m. LaCrosse is 5–8 over­all on the year and 1–1 in WIAC play. The Yel­low­jack­ets defeated LaCrosse last year for one of their two con­fer­ence victories.

Sat­ur­day after­noon UWS will host UW-Platteville at noon. The Pio­neers are 7–11 over­all and are also win­less in WIAC play. The Jack­ets other con­fer­ence vic­tory last sea­son came against Platteville.

With the three matches set for this week, the Jack­ets will look to climb out of the base­ment in the WIAC stand­ings. They cur­rently sit in last place. UW-Oshkosh cur­rently sits atop the stand­ings in the conference.
